PGDM (Biotechnology Management)

The Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Biotechnology Management) is a unique industry and has its own individual demands, causing exceptional needs for the industry. With a growth rate of almost 37%, there is a dearth of managers who understand the specialty and novelty of this field, people trained to tackle issues related to IPR, finance, marketing, personnel in this sector. There arises, thus, a new need for specialized Biotech Business Managers.

In this kind of a scenario, SIESCOMS & SIES Indian Institute of Environmental Management (SIES IIEM) took the lead in inaugurating the Post Graduate Diploma in Biotech Business Management, a 2-year full time AICTE approved program. The above program is a unique offering by combining core competencies of the both the institutes: management and bio-sciences.

The first and second semesters will comprise basic and applied concepts in bio-technology and management in an integrated manner. There will be a summer internship of 8 weeks duration with a bio-tech / relevant company at the end of the first year that will help participants to apply the concepts learnt in the first year to a real life situation. The third semester will comprise of elective in bio-technology that a candidate intends to specialize. This semester will also contain the strategic issues and advanced management concepts. Finally the fourth semester will involve a detailed capstone project (based on primary and / or secondary data) applying all the learning in a structured format.
