The Master's in Bioentrepreneurship is an interdisciplinary program tailored to students with a background in biomedicine, pharmaceutics, biotechnology, healthcare or medicine with courses addressing the central themes of how to manage and develop life science companies.

A key feature of the program is the application of knowledge in the outside world. Real-life cases are used throughout the program, including two practical placement courses at companies, authorities or other relevant organizations, in Sweden or abroad.
