The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the School of Management jointly offer a five year program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD)/Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. The dual degree program reduces by one year the usual pattern of a four-year PharmD program and a two-year MBA program.
The dual degree PharmD/MBA program involves the fundamental elements of each program. All students must meet the requirements for admission to the two individual programs. Students complete the first professional year in the PharmD curriculum. The second year involves only courses in the MBA program. Coursework in both programs are taken in years three and four, followed by a fifth experiential year in both programs.
Each candidate must meet all degree requirements of each school, except for the reduction in total credit hours.
Prospective candidates must submit separate applications and be admitted to the MBA program and to the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences according to the procedures and standards of the individual schools. Students may opt for the PharmD/MBA during the first or second professional year.
Note: Bachelor’s degree is NOT required for PharmD candidates. Students wishing to pursue the dual degree program should provide separate applications to both schools. Applications may be simultaneous, or currently admitted students may opt for the dual degree program during the first professional year of their respective program.
