Administration in conjunction with the Pharm.D.
Students who pursue this combination have opportuni-
ties in management and administrative positions. This
program requires a careful selection of prerequisite
courses for the M.B.A. degree as electives in the phar-
macy curriculum. Students start at Drake in pharmacy
and apply to the College of Business and Public
Administration after completing the prerequisite courses.
The combined degree program typically takes an extra
semester to complete beyond the pharmacy degree,
rather than an extra two years. Contact the College of
Pharmacy and Health Sciences for additional informa-
tion on this joint degree program.
