Course summary

Programme description

This programme responds to the rapid growth in the global bioeconomy by providing the core knowledge and skills needed to compete in a rapidly evolving, highly skilled workforce.

The Masters in Management of Bioeconomy, Innovation and Governance (MSc MBIG) is an innovative and dynamic postgraduate qualification designed to meet the increasing demand for skilled people in the growing global bioeconomy.

The MSc MBIG programme responds to the central challenges of the bioeconomy, including: developing sustainable innovation in a responsible manner; identifying and exploiting value throughout innovation ecosystems; and bringing new technologies to existing and emerging markets.

To meet these modern challenges, MSc MBIG provides students with a dynamic set of competencies, and knowledge about life science innovation, as highly desired by prospective employers in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

Areas covered by the programme include:

  • agricultural biotechnology
  • sustainable food and animal production
  • synthetic biology
  • pharmaceuticals and antimicrobial resistance
  • regenerative medicine and cell therapies
  • stratified medicine
  • industrial biotechnology
  • genetic databases
  • biofuels and energy-related developments

MSc MBIG graduates will excel in strategic thinking that brings globally contextualised solutions to practical problems relating to innovation and firm strategy, policy and regulation, collaborative R&D models, and governance and intellectual property.

Career opportunities

Basic scientific knowledge is no longer sufficient for building a successful career in the growing bioeconomy. There is a high demand for trained professionals in this area, and this degree is an opportunity to impress prospective employers in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors with expertise in life science innovation.

You may also choose to continue your studies and pursue an academic career in this rapidly growing field.

The transferable skills you gain in areas such as communication and research will give you an edge in the employment market, whatever your eventual career.
