In conjunction with the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, the dual M.B.A./Pharm.D. program provides Doctor of Pharmacy students with management skills and teaches them how to develop entrepreneurial capabilities for a pharmacy career in a diverse range of health care areas. Enrollment in the dual-degree program allows for the transfer of seven pharmacy courses toward the M.B.A.
Admission Pharm.D. students must have a bachelor’s degree or four years of college to be eligible for admission to the M.B.A. program. Applicants must file an application with the University of Baltimore and request that the UMB School of Pharmacy Student Affairs Office send copies of their pre-pharmacy transcripts to UB. If the applicant has not taken the GMAT, the PCAT will be substituted.
The M.B.A. program requires completion of business fundamentals (18 credits), integrated core courses (21 credits), and 12 credits of electives.
