About Advanced Master in Biotech and MedTech Ventures, Advanced Master - at Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management

This programme welcomes recent Master’s or PhD graduates and junior professionals from all disciplines, with an entrepreneurial spirit and the ambition to acquire the in-depth knowledge and business acumen needed to take on a (C-level) executive role in an early-stage Biotech or MedTech company.

The Advanced Master’s programme allows you to gain extensive, hands-on experience in interactive classes taught by industry experts, as well as in a real-life setting through an internship and capstone project.

The Advanced Master in Biotech & MedTech Ventures is co-developed with key academic and industry partners from the Belgian & international life sciences ecosystem. Thanks to this unique collaboration, 75% of classes are taught by industry leaders, giving you direct and exclusive access to a wealth of expertise.

This Advanced Master has a unique focus on developing the technical and business-oriented skills needed to lead early-stage Biotech and MedTech companies to success. You will learn how to develop a product, build a team, secure different types of funding to support the company’s growth, build a sustainable business model that balances profitability with societal impact, and much more.

The curriculum is divided into 5 modules corresponding to the development phases in the early life cycle of a Biotech or MedTech company. You will learn how to address the specific managerial challenges of each of these phases in practical use cases and assignments. Your newly acquired skills will also be put to the test in a real-life setting in an internship and a capstone assignment. 

The extensive hands-on experience gained in the programme will enable you to transition seamlessly into a leadership position upon graduation.

To be able to manage a company successfully, you will need more than a solid scientific basis and business acumen. The programme will also help you to develop your soft skills, enabling you to communicate effectively and build strong personal relationships with your team, investors, clients, or other business contacts.

The success of our thriving Belgian life sciences ecosystem leads to a clear shortage of entrepreneurial talent capable of taking on (C-level) management positions. This means graduates will be in great demand.

Our career service will also help you in building your career. In addition to providing a direct link to the industry, our dynamic team will assist you in realising your full potential through a wide range of seminars, coaching sessions, workshops, events, and other resources.

Connect with Belgian & international life sciences leaders of today as they teach your classes; forge a strong bond with your fellow classmates who will join you as the industry leaders of tomorrow.

Become part of the Solvay Alumni Network, one of the largest business networks in Belgium and beyond,-with members in more than 65 countries around the world. Participate in its events, expand your network, and never stop learning and evolving.

The number of students in each class is intentionally kept small, ensuring maximum participation for each student, a personal interaction with the faculty, and easy access to the Advanced Masters academic or administration team.

Experience our teaching methods: hands-on and participant-centred. Courses are mainly structured into real case studies, workshops, seminars, simulations, presentations, group work, field projects, company visits and on-the-job learning.

Diversity in class in terms of gender, academic background and culture enhances your student experience. Benefit from our international faculty and the multicultural environment you will be studying in, right at the heart of Europe.
