This program, developed in conjunction with the School of Pharmacy in Duluth, allows Pharmacy students to earn their MBA as they complete their PharmD degree. Pharmacists with an MBA can enter into management positions within a wide variety of pharmacy settings or utilize their business savvy in pharmaceutical sales careers.
After establishing their studies in the Doctor of Pharmacy program, students enter the MBA program and earn an MBA as they finish their PharmD. Unlike other programs, students can begin taking pre-MBA foundation coursework online as soon as they enter the program, and may even be able to take a limited number of MBA courses as early as their first year. Most students, however, will take MBA courses in conjunction with year two and three of their pharmacy education, earning an MBA by the time they finish their fourth year.
