Dear student,

Biotechnology will involve the study of engineering, math, microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, process biotechnology, plant and animal biotechnology, immunology, bioinformatics, etc. You can pursue a B. Sc, B. E or B. Tech degree in Biotechnology. Some of the top colleges in India offering Bachelor's degree in Biotechnology include:


As for the second part of your question, MBA VS M. Tech, it totally depends on your interest and skillset. We suggest you to take one step at a time. Start with your Bachelors in Biotechnology, as you progress, you will get an idea of whether you want to pursue Biotechnology at an M. Tech level or not.  Should you choose it, you will be on the development side of business. But if you want to do MBA, then you will be focusing more on the analytical and logical side of a business/ product. What interests you 3 or 4 years down the line is difficult to predict at this juncture. So, we advise you to keep an open mind.

So if you have a killer idea and have thought of how to invent and innovate on it as per the market needs, then you are ready to go! And if this becomes a success, then there is no looking back. The money is excellent.

As for MBA, once done, you will be managing one of the business aspects of running a company, depending on your specialization – HR, Marketing, Sales & Finance, etc. With time and experience, you may choose to turn Entrepreneur yourself.
