Set yourself apart: Become a Doctor of Pharmacy with an MBA

Your PharmD from the PC School of Pharmacy will prepare you for a career in pharmacy. Prepare for the business side of pharmacy and make yourself even more marketable when you graduate by earning your MBA through PC School of Pharmacy and Lander University’s Master of Business Administration – Doctor of Pharmacy Dual-Degree Program.

The dual Doctorate of Pharmacy and Masters of Business Administration program is designed for students interested in developing business acumen for entrepreneurship, healthcare administration, or leadership in future practice.

Business Courses That Fit Your Schedule

Earn your MBA from Lander University in as little as 12 months. You can take your business courses either fully online or partly online and partly in face-to-face classes on the Lander campus in Greenwood, S.C. Convenient eight-week semesters allow you to balance taking your MBA courses while you continue taking your pharmacy courses at the PC School of Pharmacy.

Master Business Skills

The MBA consists of 30 hours that prepare you to be a leader, entrepreneur, and innovator. You’ll master business skills by successfully completing 18 credit hours that make up the core of the MBA. 

For the other 12 hours, you’ll choose two short, focused educational experiences called microcredentials. In these courses, you’ll gain marketable knowledge and skills in today’s highest-demand fields like health care management and organizational leadership. 

When you earn an MBA in the dual-degree program, you’ll make yourself stand out by gaining:

  • Advanced leadership skills
  • Comprehensive business knowledge
  • Sensitivity and awareness of dynamic business issues, including diversity, sustainability, globalization, and ethics
  • Advanced problem-solving skills leading to sound decision making and strategy
  • Credentials in two high-demand fields

Two Degrees, One Bright Future

You’ll be eligible for admission into the dual-degree program once you complete all of your first-year professional courses required by the PC School of Pharmacy. You’re also required to achieve at least a 2.75 GPA, maintain good professional standing, and demonstrate outstanding character and ethical standards to be eligible for admission. 

Your Doctor of Pharmacy degree has prepared recent graduates to achieve the highest pass rate in South Carolina. Your MBA from Lander University also comes with distinction: Lander University’s College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, the premier accreditation body for business education programs.
