Master of Biotechnology Enterprise and Entrepreneurship

General

Program Description

The Johns Hopkins Master of Biotechnology Enterprise and Entrepreneurship program is intended for biotechnology professionals who want a career beyond the laboratory within an existing biotechnology organization or for those who dream of starting a new biotechnology enterprise.


This exciting new program brings together a strong science foundation with biotechnology enterprise and entrepreneurship, providing a unique educational venue for scientists to better understand the entire biotechnology enterprise and issues unique to the industry.


The curriculum will provide you with the interdisciplinary foundation to address the enterprise and regulatory challenges organizations face in the biotechnology industry. This program equips scientists with the tools and knowledge necessary to commercialize their product ideas and/or manage a biotechnology organization. Graduates will be well-suited for a variety of job opportunities, especially management and leadership roles in the biotechnology field.


Students must complete all academic work in a master’s degree or certificate program within five years.

The five-year span is calculated from the start of the first course that counts toward the degree (including time spent on continuous enrollment). Continuous enrollment does not stop or extend the time limitation requirement. This time limit includes any courses taken at another Johns Hopkins school/division that have been approved to count toward the degree or certificate.

If necessary, students may request from their program committee an extension of time to complete their program beyond the five-year limitation. If an extension is granted, it will be communicated in a letter, and the five-year limit increased by the time included in the extension. An extension may be granted for a semester up to a full year, and in rare circumstances for two years.
