The MD/MBA dual degree permits the concurrent study of medicine and graduate business coursework, leading to both the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Doctor of Medicine (MD) degrees.
As of February 2021, IU School of Medicine (IUSM) students considering the expedited MD/MBA should consult the IUSM website for program details or contact Becky Schlomann in the Evening MBA Program office at email@example.com. The information below may not apply to you.
This program is designed for students who want to combine medical training with in-depth business knowledge to better manage healthcare systems.
MD/MBA students build skills in five core areas: operations, management and entrepreneurship, accounting, finance and marketing. They graduate better prepared to approach problems differently, translating to quality patient care and better healthcare outcomes.
Students must meet the graduation requirements of each school individually, including minimum grade point average and time-limit policies.
As of April 2020, students accepted to the MD/MBA Program may, with Evening MBA Program approval, begin their Kelley coursework in any summer quarter (May start) after completing Phase I at IUSM.
For more information, including a current plan of study, please visit our MedNet page.
