Dear Friend


Good question, MBA in biotechnology management or any other subject you need to understand carefully before joining. Now students are doing B.Tech and then MBA, M.Tech and M.BA, BSc/MSc in Biotech and then MBA due to job assurance. In frequency students are opting MBA rather than Ph.D so you are not raising odd question for you, must do it.

1 MAEB: Master of Agriculture Economics and Business Management is one of the top priorities for students and recruites both offered by Aligarh Muslim University, ICFAI Tripura. You just explore the criteria of admission and its host institutes other than AMU. As far as placement of MAEB is concerned you might be able to join govt agencies preferably. High ambition of yours can lead you as a potential consultant also.

2. PGDA: Postgraduate Diploma in Agribusiness also offers you excellent career in biotech industry.

3. MBA Biotechnology: Amity University offers best placement in industry and with its alliance partners
4. M.Sc forestry and MBA: It sounds exciting for emerging industries in paper and pulp industry (FRI, Dehradun offers M.Sc Forestry)
5. Above listed degree and diploma will be helpful in getting job instantly preferably in Biotech/Pharma industry to extend the market value of any product.
6. Very importantly your biotech background will be helpful in explaining the technological kits and molecular drugs that is why RD industry prefer MBA Biotech candidate than MBA Biotech with non biological background.

7. Earlier Biotech industry was deprived of all these managerial, networking, proper entrepreneurship, structured thinking, presentation skill, selling skill and best decision skill. Now in Biotech managerial era everything is being sold out based on the above listed features of manpower and generating revenues for employee and employers both.

8. Based on my listed notes you need to analyse the concrete need of MBA why you want to do MBA:

I. You are in the race of job hunting?
II. You want to be millionaire or want to be best seller of your degree-in positive sense?
III.You do not want to join scientific club?
IV. You want to establish your own industry or entrepreneurship and willing to create job and wealth for society?

Please draw the conclusion your all confusions will be over and you will start to count benefits in multiple.

Hope my words will give you an ease for your decision whether you should go for MBA?

Best of luck
Manoj

Dear Aspirant, you have asked a very practical question. A biologist is supposed to work in the field of science specailly as academecian or as a researcher or scientist. Critically speaking a biologist is supposed to do a job other than a management person. Means that a biologist is not supposed to take care of management or administration issues. This is a typicall case in private company or in industrial sector.
A biologist (Microbiologist, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Botany, Zoology, Genetics) in university or research institute is also involved in administration besides teaching and research. Here if a person is withot an MBA degree, still involved in management of department (obviously at senior level).
As a biologist (after masters degree or doctoral degree) you are a technically qualified person. You know your subject very well and still you want to go in management aspects. Just think a technical person holding a MBA degree, it is really a very good combination.
A person holding a degree in Microbiology or Biotechnology working in an industry or private company. Here he or she will be involved in technical aspects or any work related to his or her expertise. If such a person pursue MBA (specially in Human development or mangement aspects), definitely the person will have have good chances of growth.
Being a microbiologist or biotechnologist, you are a technical person, now you have a MBA degree, therefore, you are also eligible to look after management or administration aspects. Now a person with MSc or PhD degree holder with a MBA degree will be definitely prefered over a person holding only technical or management degree.
Here you have to decide, whether you want to do MBA degree regularly or part time (correspondance), accelerated MBA, modular MBA. Ther are many institutes and universities in India which offer the MBA in different discipline.
The common disciplines are ; Marketing, human development, MBA in Agriculture, Forest management and many more.
Ther are many universities which offers MBA courses, you may check out the university or institute of your interest. You sholud also check the eligibility critera.
I know many students of mine have done MBA after obtaining their degree in MSc Microbiology, Biotechnology and Biochemistry. They are well setteled in private sector and are looking after mangenet as well as technical aspects. Two students of mine are also pursuing MBA (correspondance course).
Hope I have answered your query.
Good Luck..
