Four-day MBA in Biotechnology

We are proud to offer a four-day MBA which provides training in entrepreneurship. It is ideal for those wanting to start their own business or in early-stage businesses that use synthetic biology.

It is aimed at budding entrepreneurs, from post-graduates to seasoned academics, who want to gain a thorough understanding of the biotech sector and how to start a biotech-based business using engineering biology technologies. We can teach you how synthetic biology fits into the broad IB space and high-value manufacturing, how to define the market opportunity, how to understand and protect intellectual property, and lots more.
