Biological & Life Sciences

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

When studying biological & life sciences, students learn different characteristics of natural science. Depending on the area of focus, students may study the human body, plant biology, or animal science in order to help with real-world problems.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

Being the largest city in Sweden, Stockholm has over 1.3 million people in the urban area. The city comprises of several Islands and it is the capital city of Sweden. Stockholm has over 10 universities and colleges.

The Master's Programme in Bioentrepreneurship is tailored for students with a background in biomedicine, pharmaceutics, biotechnology, healthcare or medicine with courses addressing the central themes of how to manage and develop life science companies. Do you envision yourself working in the life science industry in the future? As a graduate from the Master's Programme in Bioentrepreneurship (MBE) you will have a solid foundation for working with the development and management of projects and companies in the life science field. A key concept within this programme is the application of knowledge in the real world. We use real cases to learn from and many of the lecturers are experienced business leaders who share their knowledge and act as inspiration. The programme is interdisciplinary with regards to the background of both the students as well as teachers and the pedagogical methods that are used in the programme. Some of the courses in the programme are offered together with our partner institutions in Stockholm. The business administration courses are offered by the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the elective courses by Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship. The programme includes two internships at companies, authorities or other relevant organisations, in Sweden or abroad, where you apply what you have learnt to create a mutually beneficial experience for you and the hosting company. The degree project is also commonly performed in a company setting. These experiences give you valuable knowledge and insights as well as networks that will provide you with a head start for your future career.
