Biotechnology Management

Biotechnology Management

This program is one of a kind in Canada as it offers students training in practical biotechnology theories, skills and practices, a graduate education in management, and two terms of paid work-placements. During the final year, students complete an interdisciplinary capstone course that combines biotechnology and management skills and knowledge. Students will graduate with two credentials — a Professional Master’s in Biotechnology Management and a Graduate Diploma in Management — and will be positioned to make immediate contributions to the growing Canadian biotechnology industry.
