CONNECTING THE WORLD OF SCIENCE AND BUSINESS

Companies and institutions need professionals with the skills to manage and market knowledge-intensive products, as well as professionals with a solid understanding of the scientific principles underlying products and processes.

Our Master's programme Science and Business Management (SBM) offers you a unique training that will enable you to translate interesting ideas into innovative products.

Our degree programme enables graduates of bachelor’s programmes in the life- or natural sciences to combine their passions for science and business. The programme will equip you with the knowledge and tools to identify, manage, and overcome problems that arise in each phase of the innovation process.

Students chose the Master's programme Science and Business Management at Utrecht University as the best programme in the field in the yearly review 'Beste studies' by Elsevier.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

SBM is aimed at students with a Bachelor’s degree in Life Sciences or Natural Sciences, who are interested in a business career. The first year comprises a science-focused programme, in which you will receive training in a research environment within your area of expertise. A solid understanding of science is essential to bring science-based products to the market. In the SBM programme, you will build on your academic background in science while adding knowledge of business processes and practical skills for commercial settings.

From scientific research to a business internship 

Importantly, you will also focus on the strategic value and applicability of scientific research. In the second year you will obtain business management skills and learn about operations management, organization and strategic management, marketing, economics, entrepreneurship and effective communication in a business environment. You will apply your skills at the final stage of the master, during an internship at a national or international company of your choice. The internship must be sufficiently challenging and is subject to approval by the coordinator.

Interactive community

Particularly important in the programme is the level of interaction between students and lecturers. Students will regularly meet to present and share their projects and will work closely together. A strong sense of community is initiated by the programme, and also by the SBM study Association Business For Life’. These enthusiastic students organize workshops, talks but also social events
