PROGRAM: PharmD/MBA Concurrent Degree Program

In Autumn 2016, the University of Washington Bothell School of Business successfully launched a concurrent degree program with the University of Washington School of Pharmacy.  The PharmD-MBA concurrent degree program is the first such program across campuses.

This program allows students to earn both the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and the Master of Business Administration (MBA) in a coordinated manner, with oversight by faculty in both programs. Students apply to the concurrent program during their first year in the PharmD program, when they will be formally accepted to the MBA program and subsequently pursue both degrees; the program allows students to earn their PharmD and MBA degrees in five years.

The PharmD-MBA concurrent degree program is a unique collaboration between UW School of Pharmacy and UW Bothell School of Business that brings together the top of executive education value with the top pharmacist training program in the region.

The concurrent degree program goes beyond the business basics. With UW Bothell’s top-ranked educational value, choice of concentration, and the world-renowned faculty at UW School of Pharmacy, this program offers a new approach to health care leadership training.
