UNM Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Business Administration Dual Degree Program

Doctor of Pharmacy & Master of Business Administration Dual Degree Program

The College of Pharmacy and the Anderson School of Management offer a dual degree program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Business Administration. The dual degree program is designed to prepare students for leadership positions that demand knowledge of both health sciences and management concepts. The goal is to provide graduates with skills, knowledge and experience needed for management positions in the pharmaceutical industry, with health care organizations or retail/independent pharmacies. Under this program, the College of Pharmacy accepts six credit hours of MBA core courses as professional electives and the Anderson School of Management accepts six credit hours (PHRM 707 and 760) in the College of Pharmacy toward the 18 credit hours of elective credit in the MBA program. Students pursuing this program must satisfy the admission and other academic requirements of both schools. Those planning to enter the dual program should consult with the admission officers of both schools as early as possible. Students that do not have a bachelor's degree must meet the admission requirements of Anderson's "Three-Two" program.

Other Dual Degree Programs:

The College of Pharmacy works to provide a supportive individualized environment. Student Services will work with students interested in pursuing other dual degrees, for example a PharmD/MS or PharmD/MPH. The College of Pharmacy is working to formalize additional dual degree programs.
