Whether you are a College of Pharmacy or College of Dental Medicine student enrolled in the dual degree program (PharmD/MBA, AEODO/MBA), or you are enrolled in the fast-track MBA program, you have wisely expanded your career opportunities. Pharmacy and Dental students will earn an MBA simultaneously with their chosen health care degree program, while fast-track MBA students will earn their degree and still focus on their interests outside of school.
The programs consist of identical core courses which are delivered by the same experienced faculty. The MBA program prepares you for senior management positions with profit-making enterprises, not-for-profit organizations, and for starting and succeeding in your own business.
In addition to decades of management experience in multiple industries, your MBA faculty members are excellent teachers with doctorates and other advanced degrees. They combine real-world experience with theoretical and research-based knowledge gained from advanced academic preparation.
The MBA faculty will be involved in helping you succeed, and they are committed to developing and delivering a graduate business education that is interesting, stimulating and relevant. Roseman MBA graduates are trained with strong leadership, entrepreneurial, and communication skills and are equipped with in-depth knowledge of business. The Roseman MBA education broadens career opportunities and increases the earning potential of its graduates.
The Roseman MBA education will:
- Develop leadership, entrepreneurial skills, and business knowledge: The MBA program provides the business knowledge and develops the entrepreneurial and leadership skills to prepare you for a successful management career.
Provide broader career opportunities: The MBA degree gives graduates more advancement opportunities.
- Avoid interruptions in work and careers: If enrolled in the fast-track evening/weekend program, students earn the MBA in about 14 months and expand their career opportunities. In the fast-track evening/weekend program, students can continue to work while completing the MBA.
- Save time: For dual-degree students (PharmD, DMD and Ortho), the program is designed to take advantage of efficiencies of the block system. Pharmacy and DMD students attend MBA classes during summer remediation (if not remediating in their primary program) and rotation times and simultaneously complete the requirements of both programs in three or four years respectively. Information on the timeline for combined AEODO/MBA program is available through the orthodontic program.
- Increase earning potential: The fast-track weekday MBA allows you to more quickly increase your earning potential by completing the degree requirements in one year. Most MBA graduates begin early in their careers to earn more than their peers without an MBA.
