This Biomedical and Molecular Sciences with Business course from University of Dundee focuses on key areas in the biotech and pharmaceutical sectors, and will prepare you for a future in these industries. 


You'll gain knowledge and skills that employers are looking for – including an in-depth understanding of molecular and cellular mechanisms of a range of diseases, and how this can help develop better ways of diagnosing and treating disease.

Alongside the core science component of the Biomedical and Molecular Sciences with Business course from University of Dundee, you'll also take business modules that will help develop your skills in this area.

Following the taught component of this course, you'll undertake a bio-business research project where you will focus your business ideas on a bioscience research development, applying what you've learned to a real-life project. You'll work alongside University researchers and staff at our Centre of Entrepreneurship - a facility dedicated to improving entrepreneurship opportunities for students and staff.


Employers in the biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries expect their postgraduate recruits to have strong, broad-ranging skills. They're looking for people who have advanced technical and communication skills, are confident team-workers, independent researchers, good project managers and are at the leading edge of their specialism. Our courses will help you develop and refine these skill sets alongside your knowledge of the field.

This can help set you on the path to a career in clinical trial coordination, regulatory affairs, lab management, scientific publishing, or bioscience entrepreneurship. You'll develop the attributes needed to work in small and large multinational companies in the biosciences sphere.
