Pharm. D./MBA​

At The University of Findlay, it’s possible to earn both a Pharm. D. and an MBA.

Findlay offers direct admission to its College of Pharmacy, which means that you are accepted into the college your freshman year and guaranteed that spot as long as you maintain the academic requirements. For students who choose to also pursue an MBA, you must apply to the program during your fourth year of pharmacy school.

Once accepted, you’ll be eligible to take MBA-level courses during your fifth year at Findlay. No MBA courses will be taken during your sixth year to make sure you can focus on your pharmacy rotations. The MBA will be completed during your first two years of professional practice.

As a dual major, you’ll be assigned a second faculty adviser to guide you through your MBA classes, and you ​will not be charged additional tuition to take the MBA courses. You also may choose to take waiver exams for some of the MBA pre-requisite courses.
