The School of Management and the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences jointly offer a five-year program leading to the Master of Business Administration (MBA)/Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree. The dual-degree program reduces the usual pattern of a four-year PharmD program and a two-year MBA program, by one year.
The MBA is a valuable credential that can be paired with a number of professional degrees, offering advanced business training concurrently to students pursuing professional credentials. The School of Management offers six such "collaborative" offerings: the MBA/AuD for speech pathologists, the MBA/Real Estate Development MS for planners and developers, the MBA/DDS for aspiring dentists, the MBA/MPH for public health professionals, and the MBA in combination with our surgical residency, for surgeons-in-training. Contact the School of Management for more information about these time-saving "collaborative" program opportunities.
Bachelor's degree or standardized test (GRE) are NOT required for PharmD student applications.
This program is officially registered with the New York State Education Department (SED).
Online programs/courses may require students to come to campus on occasion. Time-to-degree and number of credit hours may vary based on full/part time status, degree, track and/or certification option chosen. Time-to-degree is based on calendar year(s). Contact the department for details.
