The program is directed toward individuals with a science background and an interest in a management position. This may include people in the following positions, if they have an interest in a management career at a biotechnical or pharmaceutical company:

* Lab technicians
* Medical technicians
* Nurses
* Scientists who do not have a strong background in molecular biology
* Undergraduates who are about to complete their baccalaureate degree in biology or biochemistry

Current entry-level managers may have limited experience in the biological sciences or may have MPH or medical degrees. The program addresses the need on a more fundamental level, training students in both management and biomedical principles. Positions that would find such a dual degree of benefit include:

* Department or Group Manager at biotechnical/pharmaceutical company
* Director of Operations, Marketing Manager, Product Manager, Field Manager or Sales Representative at biotechnical/pharmaceutical company
* Director of Materials Management at biotechnical/pharmaceutical company or at an Integrated Healthcare Network
* Manager in a Public Policy Department at a state or federal government agency

* Accounting for Managers
* Business, Ethics, and Society
* Career Management Program
* Financial Management
* Managerial Economic Analysis
* Marketing Management
* Operations Analysis
* Organizational Behavior

* Fundamentals in Biomedical Science I & II
* Pharmacology and Drug Marketing
* The Business of Science: Drug Development
* Fundamentals of Pharmacology (3 credits)
* Principles of Clinical & Translational Research in Oncology (3 credits)
* * Parts I and II of a required 'Fundamentals' sequence: Fundamentals I (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology), Fundamentals II (Cell Biology). Fundamentals of Human Physiology can be substituted for Fundamentals I or II.


The program is directed towards individuals with a science background. It trains students in both management and biomedical principles.

USA requirements for international students

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

Program requirements

Applicants will need to apply to both programs separately. Both schools must issue an acceptance for the student to enroll in the dual degree program.Admission into the dual MS/MBA program requires a score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE). It is preferable that the GMAT or GRE score falls among the top third percentile and a superior undergraduate grade point average (GPA) is preferred. Management experience is encouraged. Strong performance in one area can offset weak performance in another. The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences requires that applicants have a basic background in biology and chemistry. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 TOEFL iBT® test: 90
