Biology and Business Studies (MSc)
Many students receive their first job offer during or right after their Business Studies internship. After graduating you can also aim for a career in Biology research.
As a science student you have been trained to develop analytical skills, the attitude for problem solving and the ability to learn fast as well as to apply creative thinking. This rather unique skill set is necessary to become a good researcher. At the same time, these qualifications are also valuable for industry and business. Many companies are looking for science graduates who will be able to fulfil challenging jobs requiring the above mentioned skills.
