Short Description

The Biotechnology and Business Program is jointly offered by the School of Science and the School of Business and Management. It offers students a broad-based learning experience that encompasses essential life science and biotechnology knowledge, as well as complementary business know-how, including accounting, finance, economics, marketing, operations management, etc. It also aims to enhance students’ creative and critical thinking abilities while helping them develop a global outlook on biotechnology development and applications, thereby laying a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to develop, manage, and market biotechnology initiatives.

The goal of the program is to nurture competent students to become industry professionals who possess both technical knowledge and a business mind. Ideal candidates will be students who are technically competent, interested in biotechnology applications, as well as eager to develop a managerial or leadership career in the biotechnology or life science-related industries. 

Students can apply for the BIBU program through the direct choice in JUPAS, or apply for transfer from the regular Science program (JS5100) of the School of Science or any Business School programs of the School of Business and Management into BIBU after their first year of study. Students interested in BIBU are encouraged to include both Science program (JS5100) and Business and Management program (JS5300) in their program choices.
