University of South Carolina students who pursue a combined Pharm.D. and MBA degree
not only learn the clinical side of pharmacy, they gain business insight and skills
required to manage or own a pharmacy.
The combined Pharm.D./Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is ideal for
a pharmacist who seeks to add practical business instruction to professional patient
care studies. A combined degree is highly desirable for students who plan to pursue
a career in hospital or health systems, the pharmaceutical industry, pharmacy benefit
management organizations, or academia.
The University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy’s combined 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 Master of Business Administration (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.
