Doctor of Pharmacy/MBA Program Requirements for 2022-2023

Joint Pharm.D./MBA

Requirements

Through this Pharm.D./MBA program, students will meet the degree requirements for both programs with a minimum of 166 credit hours, depending on an applicant's course history. Up to six (6) credits of the Core MBA courses can be used as elective credits in the pharmacy curriculum. Additionally, the coursework that a student takes as part of the required pharmacy curriculum will be counted to satisfy the 15 credit hours of the Pharmacy Industry Concentration coursework for the MBA degree.

Pharmacy students wishing to participate in this opportunity will work with their academic advisor, the associate dean for academic affairs in the Wegmans School of Pharmacy, and the director of the MBA program in the School of Business to choose appropriate coursework.

Students will be billed standard tuition costs as associated with the pharmacy program, which can include up to six (6) credit hours of MBA coursework approved to satisfy pharmacy electives. Students who take six (6) credit hours of MBA foundation coursework in satisfaction of pharmacy elective coursework will not be billed separately for those 6 credit hours, as the courses are included as part of the pharmacy program tuition. Additional MBA courses will be billed at the current per-credit-hour graduate tuition rate. Questions concerning financial aid/billing should be directed to Student Financial Services.

The number of credits is indicated in parentheses at the end of each course title.
