MBA/MD dual degree is a program that permits the concurrent study of medicine and graduate business course work, and leads to both the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Medical Doctor (MD) degrees.
This program is designed for students who want to combine medical training with in-depth business knowledge to better manage health care systems.
The dual degree requires five years of full-time study instead of the minimum of six years that would be required if the two degrees were earned separately. Students must meet the graduation requirements of each school individually including minimum grade-point average and time-limit policies.
Students spend the three years of full-time study in the School of Medicine and then begin integrating business course work in the fourth year. All MBA core classes must be taken as intact modules.
Requirements: 40.5 credit hours of business courses and four years at the School of Medicine.
