MS in Biotechnology/MBA Program Overview

The Johns Hopkins MS in Biotechnology/MBA—offered through the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Carey Business School—allows you to earn two advanced degrees in less time than it takes to earn them separately. The program is specially designed to fit the schedules of working adults, following a curriculum sequence that allows you to complete both degrees in three years.
