The objectives of the Master's of Science in Biotechnology and Chemical Science degree program are to provide practical laboratory skills and a strong conceptual foundation in the many overlapping disciplines that comprise biotechnology, and to prepare students for the application of these skills in the workplace. Biotechnology Management is one of three concentrations within the program.
The biotechnology management concentration within the MS in Biotechnology and Chemical Science is the result of a new partnership with Roosevelt's Heller College of Business. In this 36-credit-hour program, students get the best of biotechnology training, including up-to-date laboratory protocols and industry insight, plus core courses from the MBA curriculum. The track includes a capstone course or internship so that you can put your skills into practice.

The ability for scientists to think about problems outside the technical realm is critical for running or working in any type of management role in the biotech industry. Roosevelt’s biotechnology management track is similar to an MBA but with a strong science foundation. I highly recommend the program for biotech students interested in a business-focused approach to problem solving.
