Biotechnology Management and Entrepreneurship

From editing genes using CRISPR to growing transgenic, pesticide-resistant crops, innovations in biotechnology are happening faster and becoming more sophisticated. To maintain competitiveness in this growing market, companies need professionals who:

  • understand the science behind biotechnology
  • have the business skills needed to commercialize new products and services

The MS in Biotechnology Management and Entrepreneurship at the Yeshiva University Katz School provides the mission-critical scientific, technical, and business knowledge needed to launch, manage, scale and commercialize biotechnology products and services. The degree is modeled on Professional Science Master's degrees—what The New York Times called "the science MBA."

STEM Optional Practical Training (OPT)

The master’s in Biotechnology Management and Entrepreneurship is a STEM-approved degree. International students may be eligible for up to 36 months of OPT. The program also offers several opportunities for Curricular Practical Training (CPT).

Blend Science and Business to Build a Better World
  • Merge science or technology knowledge with business skills such as marketing, customer development, analytics, and new business development to work effectively across the biotechnology ecosystem.
  • Master organizational leadership skills such as product, program, and project management.
  • Develop an understanding of the legal, regulatory, compliance, and ethical aspects of the field.
Featured Courses

The Biotechnology Management and Entrepreneurship master's curriculum is project-based—students will apply their classroom knowledge to real-world simulations and build a robust portfolio to showcase to future employers.

 

Who Should Apply?
