Biotechnology / Economics Program 2015 Outline

Successfully transforming research ideas to new productive processes and products requires knowledge not only of scientific principles but also of key economic concepts. As well as requiring familiarity with science policy, it necessitates forecasting the demand for new products or processes, assessing the market for new technologies, performing cost-benefit analyses of new projects and finding the financing for them. This program is designed to give students a dual capability as scientists and economists and prepare them for careers as economic forecasters, business economists, government economists, scientific research managers, or regulatory analysts. 

Continuation in the Biotechnology/Economics program requires a cumulative overall average of at least 70%, a cumulative Economics average of 70% and a cumulative Science average of 65%.
