Minor in Bioentrepreneurship

Description

The Minor Concept

 A minor gives you the opportunity of having a second specialization in your degree. The minor is a bundle of three to four electives that can be chosen separately but if chosen together rewards a minor.

Purpose

The minor in bioentrepreneurship offers the core skills required for commercialization of bio products. The objective is not only to build technical skills in business analysis but also train application of these skills to actual business challenges in real-life entrepreneurship projects.

More specifically, the minor will introduce the students to a number of new issues related to bio-entrepreneurship:

  • Innovation in BioBusiness
  • Entrepreneurship in BioBusiness
  • Bio Markets

The minor will run in the fall 2017.

The BBIP program is directed at a small volume of high performing students. The minor enrolls students from the following cm-programs: FIR, FSM, AEF, ASC, IMM, IBS & MIB.
