Dual Degree - Pharm.D./MBA (HOM)
About the Program
In 2007, the faculty at the Texas Tech University Rawls College of Business and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy developed an innovative dual degree program to provide pharmacy students with knowledge and skills to address the future leadership needs of an evolving pharmaceutical and healthcare environment. The HOM concentration of the MBA program gives pharmacy students the core knowledge to effectively address the rapid changes to the customary roles of the pharmacist.
The dual degree PharmD/MBA program is unique in that it has students enrolled in the MBA program during the summer months and in pharmacy classes during Fall and Spring. Additionally, the program will accept some course offerings from both schools as transfer credit, enabling the pharmacy students to graduate with their MBA in the third year. The MBA (HOM) provides pharmacy students seeking residency and/or employment opportunities with a set of skills unmatched by their peers.
