PharmD/MBA Dual Degree

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) College of Pharmacy and the University of Memphis Fogelman College of Business and Economics have aligned to offer a Dual Degree Program leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) from the UTHSC and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Memphis. Under this agreement, students will complete all requirements for each degree and be awarded the PharmD and MBA degrees according to all requirements and specifications for each degree that the respective institutions. Students interested in the PharmD/MBA must apply and be accepted to both programs separately. Acceptance by one program does not guarantee admission to the other degree program as each admission process is conducted on an independent basis. Both institutions will collect tuition and fees separately.

A student must fulfill all requirements for admission to the MBA program as specified by the University of Memphis. Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5. Students who do not have a bachelor degree must complete all requirements of the PharmD degree prior to MBA being awarded. The MBA program will accept as transfer a maximum of three (3) credit hours of pharmacy coursework for the Pharmacy Management and Pharmacoeconomics course. The PharmD program will accept as transfer a maximum of eight (8) credit hours of MBA coursework that will be counted towards elective credit hour requirements. Students enrolled in the program are responsible to request transfer of credit.
