Practical Placement 1

The Master's Programme in Bioentrepreneurship is tailored for students with a background in biomedicine, pharmaceutics, biotechnology, healthcare or medicine with courses addressing the central themes of how to manage and develop life science companies. Usually, scientists are brilliant at science but they don’t really know business and business people brilliant at business but they don’t really understand the science part.

These students are able to plan and carry out, analyze and present a project that requires advanced knowledge and skills within a relevant field, for examples:

  • Marketing & sales
  • Business opportunities
  • Organization & management
  • Innovation & entrepreneurship
  • Market analysis
  • Financing & venture capital
  • Surveys and benchmarking
