In conjunction with the University of Baltimore Merrick School of Business, the dual PharmD/MBA program provides Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) students with management and entrepreneurial skills to stand out in a career in pharmacy or health care.

It's a competitive market, regardless of the industry you’re working in, and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) adds value to your PharmD by demonstrating your exceptional work ethic and showcasing your unique approach to leadership.

About the PharmD/MBA Dual Degree:

The Merrick MBA program offers a great deal of flexibility, with most courses available online (including all required core courses) or conveniently scheduled in the evening and on weekends in Baltimore. Courses are scheduled in six 7-week sessions and two 15-week sessions during the year. More information is available here.

About the Application Process:

Applicants to the Merrick MBA program may apply with 120 credits or a bachelor’s degree, and may substitute PCAT scores for the GMAT. The MBA program requires the completion of 48 credits, and the dual degree student will benefit from a generous substitution policy that enables the student to complete both degrees in less time and for less money than if separately pursued.
