About MSc in Crop Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship
This course can be completed one year full-time or two years part-time and is comprised of taught modules and a research project.
The programme requires you to take 60 credits of modules in crop biotechnology and 60 credits of business modules to gain a strong balance of subject-specific and business-related skills. You then undertake a 60-credit technology transfer project, where you apply your new business skills to a problem of commercialisation of a biotechnology opportunity.
