Johns Hopkins MS/MBA Biotechnology [#permalink] New post 04 Dec 2007, 13:15
Hi,

I am looking to go into product management in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical sector and have been looking at programs that specialize in this. I have a biomedical background and recently noticed that Johns Hopkins has a dual degree MS/MBA in Biotechnology. I know that the school technically isn't accredited, but with a name like Johns Hopkins you can't go wrong in the healthcare world. What are people's thoughts on the MBA program there and what it will mean for job placement in the biotech sector. Thanks.

I'm unfamiliar with this program, but here are my thoughts.

If you have a biomedical background, I would think that an MBA from a more recognized business program would be more beneficial than a science-related Masters at JHU.

In general, in my opinion, science masters don't carry that much weight. I think that it's often thought "well, why didn't (s)he get a PhD?".

So if you want to do the business side of biopharma, and have some basic scientific experience, I'd recommend the pure MBA, or at least an MBA/MA from a school in which the MBA side of things is more esteemed. Have you considered an MBA/MPH? I'm not sure if you're interests are more medical or scientific.

I know that Penn, Duke and some others have healthcare-focused MBA programs. Of course, there's always other dual-degree programs, such as the Columbia or Michigan MBA/MPHs. I'm considering the MBA/MPH myself. MIT has an MA/MBA program that seems very similar to JHU's, but obviously the MBA side will be much stronger reputationally.
