    Re: Is it a good choice to do MBA in Biotech after graduation?

    hello,
    In my opinion whatever you are thinking is right. Its good to persue MBA instead of going to M.sc and then Ph.D because the scope of biotech in India is not so bright and one need to be a a Ph.D to get a good job. But yes an MBA degree will not only open the door of corporate sector for you, but will lead a very healthy growth in your career.

    However after doing biotechnology, it is not so that your option is open for MBA in biotech only but you can persue an MBA in Pharmaceutical management and in hospital management. Both the options are very good and regarded as a recession proof career.

    But yes if your heart says MBA in biotech. So, there are wonder of opportunities in same also. Where you can enter into the biotech equipment branch, where you have to search for the biotech industry to sell your manufacturing machines. IT is just a part but huge growth. So go for it..............

    Re: Is it a good choice to do MBA in Biotech after graduation?

    Yes, definitely doing MBA in Biotechnology after the completion of B.Sc in Biotechnology is a good choice because the job opportunities through Biotechnology course in India are not upto the mark.

    It may take some more years of time for Biotechnology to develop well in India and to provide good job opportunities to the candidates.

    Generally soon after the completion of B.Sc in Biotechnology, the candidates may go for M.Sc in Biotechnology.

    But in current scenario, the trend has changed. Candidates are shifting to MBA course.

    The main reason for this is plenty of job opportunities that are being provided by MBA course in various business sectors.

    If you have profound interest to join MBA in Biotechnology, then join the course by getting admission in good college and complete it successfully.

    Other suggested specializations in MBA are
    -MBA in Pharmaceutical Management
    -MBA in Hospital Management

    You may also join MBA in traditional specializations like Finance, Marketing and HR if you are interested.

    Having completed MBA course is not enough to get good job and to go to higher levels in career.

    One has to develop
    -Communication skills
    -Soft skills
    -Administration skills
    -Managing skills
    -adaptable personality etc. during you course of MBA study.

    These are necessary for every MBA candidate to survive in this competitive world.

    Dear friend

    MBA is the best way way to complete post graduation after you degree.An MBA after a biotechnology degree is the best option. You will need to work hard. If you really are interested in research and working, then go for MSc. Still, an MBA is best.

    advantage of doing MBA in biotechnology--

    Biotechnology is field about which everyone knows that its an upcoming field and which has a lot of potential in the coming future. Due to this, todays generation wants to enter in this field to make a mark in it before others. This field not only includes the R&D work but also has a great application in the management field too. So. many students and even working proffesionals are opting for MBA BIotech these days. MBA biotech persond has a great advantage over other persons in a fact that they had a edge over other MBA proffesionals because they had a good knowledge of biotech firms and pharmaceuticals also. Its like a value add course to these students.So i would like others also to please take part in this discussion to know what actually we can done more in this field.

    Good Luck

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is advisable to follow one single subject/Major of your graduation in order to learn in depth. You have taken right decision to select same
    subject/stream in which you are doing the Graduation.

    Ofcourse the Biotechnology in India though in its infant stage, and you will surely get a good opportunity with synchronised subjects study.

    hi..it does not matter from what branch you are from an masters degree in business is always an added advantage and great booster for one to have an great career opportunities ,i think you should start preparing for the cat examination right away and apply for the exam as sson as possible because almost all the major mba colleges in the country take admission on the basis of the cat examination and hence that makes this examination one of the most important and toughest mba entrance examination in the world and doing well in this examination will require lots of hard work and also smart preparation it would be better if you join an coaching institute like the times academy which has an impeccable record in giving the maximum numbers of iim students

    Re: Is it a good choice to do MBA in Biotech after graduation?

    I am agree with my friend Yogiworld773.
    Whatever you are thinking just go for that.
    Now days every field has equal opportunities.
    Biotech is also one of the biggest field rising in India at a very high speed. And i think if you are thinking of taking Master degree in biotech then it is quite good But this field is not available my friend.
    But similar fields are there in MBA course,
    You can go for MBA in Pharmaceutical management OR MBA in hospital management.These two fields are related to Biotech and i think if you have interest in Biotech then surely these field are for you.
    You can choose any of one as Both have a large scopes.
    Even if you do MBA in Pharmaceutical management then you can place yourself in Biotech Companies as Biotech Companies has require Pharmaceutical students or Employees.
    So in my opinion this is best field if you want to think for do this then go for It.
    After completing you can look for job in Various Companies like-

    Serum Institute of India
    Panacea Biotec
    Nicholas Piramal
    Krebs Biochemicals and Industries Limited
    Zydus Cadila
    Indian Immunologicals
    Biocon

    Hey friend,

    Yeah this might not be such a good choice but even though it is better for you to choose your PG in doing MBA after Bio tech which is a Bio technology.

    MBA is a PG course and you will complete the degree in 2 years.

    If you are interested in doing your PG in MBA then you need to satisfy certain eligibility conditions and they are:

    You need to have completed your gradation in a recognized university for doing MBA with 55% aggregate and for SC/ST candidates should have got 45%.

    The candidates who are writing their final degree exam or waiting for their results can also apply.

    You can join in MBA course at any age as there is no specified age limit.

    The candidate must write the respected entrance exam which offers candidates to get into good reputed colleges.

    Some of the entrance exams for MBA in India which you could opt are CAT,GMAT,XAT,MAT,AAIMA MAT,TANCET, etc.

    There are many entrance exams for MBA which you could write and the main thing is that you must satisfy the eligibility criteria for the exam for which it is framed.

    All the best.

    hello,

    Yes, what your thinking is correct. it is better to go for MBA side. even there are plenty of students in IIM they are all Biotech back ground in their engineering.

    within 5 to 6 months recession is going start in India. so these two are the best options to you.


    best of luck...

    Re: Is it a good choice to do MBA in Biotech after graduation?

    Yes, no doubt MBA biotech is a good choice after completing your graduation in biotechnology because it will help you to get sound knowledge in your core subject as well as you can get proper management skills in biotech field. day to day need of biotech management students are growing in the market.

    after completing your graduation in MBA, you can be placed in many fields like R&D,QUALITY CONTROL,BIOTECH companies,pharma companies etc....

    if you competed your MBA from reputed business schools like IIMs,ISB,FMS etc...then you will be directly placed in to middle level and top level management in the organization. companies are suffering with lack of management in quality and production departments.it will be fulfilled only with MBA graduates. so surely you will be placed in good organization with huge packages. but be strong in your core subject area and management skills.these only help you to become good manager in any organization.

    i hope you got the solution.

    good luck....

Its smart to persue MBA rather than aiming to M.sc and so pH.D as a result of the scope of biotech in India isn't thus bright and one got to be a a pH.D to induce an honest job. however affirmative AN MBA degree won't solely open the door of company sector for you, however can lead a really healthy growth in your career.

    but once doing biotechnology, it's not in order that your choice is open for MBA in biotech solely however you'll persue AN MBA in Pharmaceutical management and in hospital management. each the choices area unit superb and considered a recession proof career.

    however affirmative if your heart says MBA in biotech. So, there area unit marvel of opportunities in same conjointly. wherever you'll enter into the biotech instrumentality branch, wherever you have got to go looking for the biotech trade to sell your producing machines. it's simply an area however vast growth. thus opt for it.
    Yes, undoubtedly doing MBA in Biotechnology once the completion of B.Sc in Biotechnology may be a sensible choice as a result of the task opportunities through Biotechnology course in India aren't upto the mark.

    it's going to take some a lot of years of your time for Biotechnology to develop well in India and to produce smart job opportunities to the candidates.

    typically shortly once the completion of B.Sc in Biotechnology, the candidates might opt for M.Sc in Biotechnology.

    however in current state of affairs, the trend has modified. Candidates area unit shifting to MBA course.

    the most reason for this can be many job opportunities that area unit being provided by MBA course in numerous business sectors.

    If you have got profound interest to hitch MBA in Biotechnology, then be a part of the course by obtaining admission in smart school and complete it with success.

    Other urged specializations in MBA area unit
    -MBA in Pharmaceutical Management
    -MBA in Hospital Management

    you'll conjointly be a part of MBA in ancient specializations like Finance, promoting and 60 minutes if you're interested.
    Biotechnology is field regarding that everybody is aware of that its AN approaching field and that contains a ton of potential within the coming back future. as a result of this, todays generation needs to enter during this field to form a mark in it before others. This field not solely includes the R&D work however conjointly contains a nice application within the management field too. So. several students and even operating professionals area unit choosing MBA Biotic currently. MBA biotech persons contains a nice advantage over different persons in a very proven fact that that they had|they'd} a edge over different MBA professionals as a result of they had an honest information of biotech companies and prescription drugs conjointly. Its sort of a price add course to those students.So i might like others conjointly to please participate during this discussion to grasp what truly we are able to done a lot of during this field.

    Re: Is it a good choice to do MBA in Biotech after graduation?

    Doing MBA in Biotechnology after the completion of B.Sc in Biotechnology is a good choice because the job opportunities through Biotechnology course in India are not upto the mark. It may take some more years of time for Biotechnology to develop well in India and to provide good job opportunities to the candidates. Generally soon after the completion of B.Sc in Biotechnology, the candidates may go for M.Sc in Biotechnology. But in current scenario, the trend has changed. Candidates are shifting to MBA course. The main reason for this is plenty of job opportunities that are being provided by MBA course in various business sectors. If you have profound interest to join MBA in Biotechnology, then join the course by getting admission in good college and complete it successfully.

    In my opinion whatever you are thinking is right. Its good to pursue MBA instead of going to M.SC and then PhD because the scope of biotech in India is not so bright and one need to be a a PhD to get a good job.

    But an MBA degree will not only open the door of corporate sector for you, but will lead a very healthy growth in your career.

    However after doing biotechnology, it is not so that your option is open for MBA in biotech only but you can pursue an MBA in Pharmaceutical management and in hospital management. Both the options are very good and regarded as a recession proof career.

    But if your heart says MBA in biotech. So, there are wonder of opportunities in same also. Where you can enter into the biotech equipment branch, where you have to search for the biotech industry to sell your manufacturing machines. IT is just a part but huge growth. So go for it
