The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science (CPPS) and the College of Business and Innovation (COBI) have worked cooperatively to enable students in the Pharm.D. program to earn an MBA.
Administration of the Pharm.D./MBA
The admission process for the Pharm.D./MBA will require that students apply to each program separately. More specifically, students will apply and be required to meet the admission requirements of the MBA program as administered by the COBI, and the same students will be required to apply and meet the admission requirements of the Pharm.D. program as administered by the CPPS. Pharm.D. students take the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT), and that would be accepted by the MBA program in lieu of the GMAT. The COBI Graduate Student Advising Office provides advising for the MBA portion of the program. Degrees will be conferred separately with the COBI conferring the MBA, and the CPPS conferring the Pharm.D.
MBA Admissions Procedures
For admission to the program, The University of Toledo MBA program requires a 2.7 undergraduate GPA on a 4.0 scale and a score of 450 on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) with a minimum score of 20 in both the verbal and quantitative sections or the PCAT for those in the Pharm.D./MBA Dual Degree Program. For further admission information please refer to the COBI catalog or online admissions website.
PharmD/MBA students may replace OPMT 5510 Statistics with the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences PHPR 4330, PHPR 6340, or any Statistics I equivalent course.
Up to three of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences courses will serve as MBA electives. The nine credit hours of elective course work will be fulfilled by (3) AAPE rotations (12 credit hours) from the Management and Administration Track. Students in the dual degree program will earn their MBA in General Administration since the MBA electives are replaced with College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences courses.
Please see the COBI catalog for specific course information related to the MBA.
