College of Pharmacy


Pharm.D./MBA

Carolina students who pair Pharm.D. and MBA degrees not only learn the clinical side of pharmacy, they also gain the business insight and skills required to manage or own a pharmacy.

A dual Pharm.D./MBA program is ideal for a pharmacist who seeks to add practical business instruction to professional patient care studies. A joint degree is highly desirable for students who plan to pursue a career in a hospital or health system, within the pharmaceutical industry, a pharmacy benefit management organization or academia.

The University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy’s dual Pharm.D./MBA is offered in partnership with the award-winning Darla Moore School of Business and allows students to concurrently achieve both degrees. Pharmacy students will be able to enroll in the Moore School’s Professional Masters in Business (PMBA) program. As students complete pharmacy school, they can take advantage of the PMBA program’s course scheduling flexibility with evening classes, recorded lectures and distance education viewing sites throughout South Carolina and beyond.
