Biotechnology is a research oriented subject, if you want a job after completing MSc in Biotechnology it wont help, you have to go for PhD to get a job in research labs or a teaching job in some good institutes. If you are not interested in research then go for MBA, but dont do MBA in Biotechnology because again it will limit your career opportunities. You can also do MSc in microbiology or biochemistry, these subjects have better opportunities then MSc Biotechnology. Actually Biotechnology is a vast subject its not only one subject its a combination of many subjects, along with microbiology and biochemistry you have to study immunology, genetics, recombinant DNA, cell bio, molecular biology, plant biotech, animal biotech, chemical bio, and many more. A person needs a lot of patience to study biotech since its a research oriented subject you have to study through out your life. You have to devote lots of time and energy in this subject, without this you can reach nowhere. If youre really interested in pursuing Biotechnology then go for MSc Biotechnology then doctorate then post doctorate but not MBA in Biotechnology. If you are tired of studying the subject then its the right time to change your career option. Good luck.

If you did your graduation in biotech. My simple suggestions to join any biotech company as a fresher. Work for 4 year or 3 year. Then only go for this kind of course. Because mba in biotech is latest scope in India. most probably u will get placed in marketing line of biotech company. Other departments having different scenarios. Otherwise you can go for normal mba specialisation. Like hr finance. But no role of biotech here. Therefore keep this in mind then take any decisions.

It totally depends on you whether you want to have a career in research line or job oriented or management.Doing MBA in Biotechnology has got no meaning,first of all youre in a technical line,why to mingle management with it?If youre interested in business management then do a plain management course,Biotechnology deals with technologies,it will acquire you job in the medical,industrial and agricultural field plus you can also choose the path of research.

There are so many possibilities if youre sticking to only this technical line but if youre collaborating management with it,then its a complete waste of time to learn technology.

I would suggest you either do MS or M.Tech or M.SC in biotechnology after finishing your bachelors degree,these Masters courses are only best suited with it.

Hi there…

I think, like all other commercial products, biotech products do also need the marketing strategies. MBA degree holders specialised in biotechnology and its products are benefitted from the high demands in biomedical, application based products.
