Careers and stakeholders

The MBC graduate will acquire specialized and in-depth knowledge in molecular and cellular biology, and consolidated competences in the application of state-of-the-art analytical methodologies and experimental techniques to address a variety of biological challenges. This highly specific, yet multidisciplinary, profile will offer MBC graduates professional employment opportunities in both the public and private sectors, operating in biology-and biotechnology-related fields. In particular, MBC will provide the necessary training to allow graduate employment in the following sectors:
- basic and applied academic research, in universities and other public/private research centers;
- environmental management /protection sectors;
- biomedical, agro-bio and pharmaceutical industries, and related professional sectors;
- promotion and development of innovative scientific technologies;
- biotechnological research and development in the healthcare, pharmaceutical and food industries
- editorial, intellectual property and scientific dissemination sectors;
- project management in the biotech industry;
- Biology teaching in adherence to Italian laws;
The fact that MBC is carried out entirely in English, will allow graduates to engage with public/professional sectors in both a national and international setting.

MBC graduates may take the state exam for the qualification to practice the profession of biologist and consequently may be legally admitted to the 'A Section' of the National Biologists Register. Furthermore, graduates will be fully qualified to apply for entry to national/international Ph.D. courses and other postgraduate specializations. Indicatively, the different employment sectors accessible to Master graduates, with reference to the intellectual, scientific and highly-specialized professions are here-listed:
- Biologists and related professionals
- Molecular biologist
- Researchers and technicians graduated in the area of biological sciences (after passing the competitive exam).
