Programme presentation

Do you envision yourself working in the life science industry in the future? As a graduate from the Master's Programme in Bioentrepreneurship (MBE) you will have a solid foundation for working with the development and management of projects and companies in the life science field.
 
A key concept within this programme is the application of knowledge in the real world. We use real cases to learn from and many of the lecturers are experienced business leaders who share their knowledge and act as inspiration. The programme is interdisciplinary with regards to the background of both the students as well as teachers and the pedagogical methods that are used in the programme.
 
Some of the courses in the programme are offered together with our partner institutions in Stockholm. The business administration courses are offered by the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the elective courses by Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship.
 
The programme includes two internships at companies, authorities or other relevant organisations, in Sweden or abroad,  where you apply what you have learnt to create a mutually beneficial experience for you and the hosting company. The degree project is also commonly performed in a company setting. These experiences give you valuable knowledge and insights as well as networks that will provide you with a head start for your future career.
 
 

Career opportunities

The programme provides a solid foundation for a career in the biotech, pharmaceutical, medical technology or other related industries working with marketing, project management, business development or venture capital among other relevant positions.
