Dear Ayushi,

After Biotech a highr degree woudl be of great importance in related field.
There are variosu option for higher degree like Msc. MBA in Biotech , Clinical Research and MBA in Health Care Management.

Seeing the increasing health Sector boom Clinical Research and MBA in Health Care Management woudl be more helpful in getting a jon.

To give you few stats on health care sector:

Healthcare is a steadily fast growing service sector. The Indian healthcare market is currently estimated at US$35 billion and is expected to reach over US$75 billion by 2012 and US$150 billion by 2017. According to the Investment Commission of India the healthcare sector has experienced phenomenal growth of 12 percent per annum in the last 4 years. Rising income levels and a growing elderly population are all factors that are driving this growth. In addition, changing demographics, disease profiles and the shift from chronic to lifestyle diseases in the country has led to increased spending on healthcare delivery. Despite having centers of excellence in healthcare delivery, these facilities are limited and are inadequate in meeting the current healthcare demands.

You can find the details of program for clinical research and MBA in Healthcare Management here at CREMA. http://www.cremaindia.org/mba-courses.php

I am sure this would help you to take a right decision accordingly and scale high in your career. All the Best
