Welcome to the Master's Program 'Life Science Economics and Policy' !


The Master’s Program in Life Science Economics and Policy

The international Master’s program in Life Science Economics and Policy was launched in the winter semester of 2013 at the Technische Universität München / Technical University of Munich. Global challenges within the bioeconomy like food security, climate change, environmental degradation, and the growing demand for energy, food and raw materials are current topics requiring innovative solutions with appropriate regulatory frameworks and policies. Accordingly, this program integrates issues of economics and policy with the life sciences, and equips graduates with in-depth knowledge to work on, inter alia, these important societal challenges.

Compulsory subjects lay the progarm's foundation. Students choose electives from a wide range of subjects both in the social- and natural sciences, are required to go on an excursion organised by the university, and to do a research project (or an internship). Five credits in the field of General Education (neither social- nor natural science subjects) must be done. The program concludes with the writing of a thesis, and a colloquium. Subjects equivalent to at least 120 ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) must be passed. Being an international program, the language of instruction is English. Studying abroad at a partner university is an option.
