Hi Deepshika, I am not sure if there are any Universities which offer an MBA with specialisation in Biotechnology. In my opinion, it is not a great option. I would suggest you to pursue an MS program in Biotechnology or Bio-Informatics or something similar and pursue a Research Job after the course. MBA will move you away form your technical stream and very rarely can you find jobs related to Biotechnology after an MBA. I would suggest you to do an MBA after working for about 3 to 5 years and then you can seek a Management role in the firm you are working. Europe is quite strong in Biotechnology. Try Netherlands or Ireland. All the best.

Hi Deepshikha..I am going to study MBA in Biotechnology from UK this year only.It totally depends on your choice whether you want to continue in research or as a management professional..However, MBA in Biotechnology is a blended course and can shape your career on a management role. 
Today, Biotechnology companies are looking for graduates who are bilinguistic means who can understand the scientific as well as management issues at the same time.There are some universities in UK and USA where you can opt for this curriculum.You can mail me for more understanding.

hey deepshika
while MBA always adds feather to your hat,
why dont you try MBA in Pharma Marketing & Management offered by ICRI.
They have a nice course curricullum , also branches in Delhi,Mumbai,Chennai, bangalore.
so you need not worry about going abroad as well.
