The BSc in Biotechnology and Business (BIBU) is offered jointly by the School of Science and the School of Business and Management.
It aims to groom students with a hybrid interest in both biotechnology applications and business operations. It offers students a broad-based learning experience that encompasses essential life science and biotechnology knowledge, as well as complementary business know-how, including accounting, finance, economics, marketing, operations management, etc. It also further enhances students’ creative and critical thinking abilities while helping them develop a global outlook on biotechnology development and applications, thereby laying a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to develop, manage, and market biotechnology initiatives.
Students can apply for the BIBU program through direct choice (program-based admission route), or apply for transfer into BIBU from the Science (Group B) program or any Business School programs at HKUST after their first year of study. Students interested in the BIBU program are encouraged to include either the Science (Group B) program or the Business and Management program, in their program choices of application.
