About the Business Administration Dual Degree Program


The student will earn both the Pharm.D. and M.B.A. degrees during the four years of pharmacy school. This degree track produces outstanding pharmacists with greater insight into the intricacies of healthcare management systems. Students admitted to this M.B.A. program begin the course of study in the summer before the first year of pharmacy school. Business courses are offered in Lubbock during the summer and via telecast during the academic year. Areas of study include accounting, management strategy, business decision-making skills and methods, business information systems, and other core skills in the business curriculum. For a more specific knowledge of the organizational context in which healthcare is provided, students complete courses concentrating in health organization management.
