Application Requirements

Pharm.D. / MBA


University of South Carolina pharmacy students who are interested in concurrently earning Pharm.D. and MBA degrees must apply for admission to the Darla Moore School of Business. In addition to completing the application, you’ll be required to take the GMAT or GRE as part of the admissions process.

Although the PMBA program has traditionally required a bachelor’s degree, the Moore School has agreed to accept Pharm.D. students who have completed the pre-pharmacy curriculum and the first two professional years of the Pharm.D. program. You are eligible to begin the PMBA program in the fall of your third professional year, or you can opt to begin the PMBA program in the spring semester. You should apply during the semester prior to your anticipated start date.

Requirements for Pharm.D./MBA Application

  • Completion of pre-pharmacy curriculum
  • Admission into the Pharm.D. program
  • Completion of first two professional years of pharmacy school
  • Admission into the Darla Moore School of Business

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
