MS in Biomedical Management

students in class

The Tufts MS in Biomedical Management (BiomM) is a two-year, in-person program that leverages the academic strengths of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences to offer outstanding training in biomedical sciences and pharmacology, combined with additional training in management and business offered by the Tufts Gordon Institute.

The typical candidate has an undergraduate degree in the sciences. Significant hands-on laboratory experience is optional. They may have industry experience through a job or an internship; they may not yet have started their career, or they may be looking for experience that will allow them to grow into a management role. Graduates will be highly competitive for R&D jobs in industry and will come out of the program with a skill set uniquely suited for managerial positions in a laboratory environment.

In order to help students meet their career goals, the program provides academic training in the biomedical sciences, a hands-on research experience, two internship experiences within biotech or pharma, and training in management and entrepreneurship. To learn about the curriculum in more detail, visit the BiomM Curriculum page.

Participation in cutting-edge research and rigorous training in the biomedical sciences distinguish BiomM graduates during their job search. The internship experience and management courses provide a competitive edge for those looking to break into biotech, pharma, or science management. The program will graduate rigorous, collaborative scientists who also understand what it takes to succeed, and lead, in industry. 

Admission for the MS in Biomedical Management class matriculating in September 2021 is rolling. Qualified applicants will be accepted beginning in May, and applications will be closed once the class is full.
