The Professional Science Master in Biomarkers and Diagnostics (MSBS-PBD) is designed to be a terminal degree with the graduate having strong prospects for immediate employment in industry. The MSBS-PBD degree is a “job ready” degree. This is achieved by a three-pronged approach:
- To prepare master’s students with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of biomarker discovery and development through focused course work.
- To complement their science education through course work in management, orienting them to realities of the business aspects of the pharmaceutical/diagnostics industry.
- To place them as interns in a pharmaceutical- or diagnostic-oriented company for four months to enhance their practical training and employability.
The MSBS-PSMBD program is targeted to students completing a bachelor in computer science, chemistry or a biological or pharmaceutical science.
