MS in Biotechnology and MBA Dual Degree
In today’s aggressive biotechnology business environment, there’s an increasing demand for leaders who understand both the science and business of biotechnology. The MS in Biotechnology/MBA is one of the nation’s first and largest dual graduate degree programs in biotechnology and business.
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.
The program capitalizes on the strengths of leading experts, Johns Hopkins academics, and a diverse student body.
