The Masters of Bioscience is a two-year program, residential program that includes course work in both technical and business courses as well as a summer internship and the capstone, Teams Masters Project.
- During the first year in the MBS program, students take a common set of interdisciplinary applications-oriented technical courses, business courses and a bioindustry ethics course.
- Between the first and second years, students participate in a required, paid internship in a bioscience company. The summer internship actively engages students in the issues and current techniques associated with particular industry sectors and provides an understanding of the climate and culture of business. A summer internship represents approximately 400 hours of work.
- During the second year in the MBS program, students will be part of a Team Masters Project, which spans both semesters of the second year and provides the students with the opportunity to apply the tools they have gained in the first year.
- Students may focus their studies in the second year of the program in one of five career focus tracks: Medical Devices, Pharmaceuticals, Bioprocessing, Business of Bioscience or Clinical and Regulatory Affairs. Please see career focus tracks for more information about each of the tracks.
