The Masters degree in Medical Biotechnology has been designated a Professional Science Masters by the Council of Graduate Schools. It is one of less than 50 programs of this type in the U.S. It is an applied program that may provide graduates with the knowledge of business principles, ethics, marketing, legal concepts, communication and leadership, in addition to a solid scientific foundation.


The Professional Science Master’s (PSM) degree in Medical Biotechnology combines graduate level science study with advanced business learning. This graduate degree program is for individuals with a bachelor's degree in the biomedical sciences who wish to advance their science and laboratory skills, specifically in biotechnology, but also want the business skills usually taught through an MBA program. The course may be completed in 12 - 18 months.

Since advanced cross-training between science and business occurs, students will take courses from both the College of Nursing and Health Sciences and the School of Business. Business courses focus on the foundation of professional skills, such as marketing, management, and entrepreneurship, giving students greater employment opportunity in the biotech field. Because of the interdisciplinary aspect of the PSM degree, students feel they are earning both a biotechnology and business graduate degree.
