* Exemptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.

^ For greater relevance to the industry, students are encouraged to take up BioBusiness-related projects, e.g. based on ideas generated through work done through BS3006 or

BBIP Entrepreneurship Project, or market and product analysis within companies they were attached to during Professional Internship (a model adopted from CBS practice with Danish companies). Nevertheless, students who would like to have hands-on training in laboratory-based research for bio-product development careers are open to choose such options.
