Concurrent Programs – JD or PharmD

Concurrent degree programs allow students to simultaneously earn two graduate degrees and to share coursework across the two programs. University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) PharmD students and UALR Bowen School of Law JD students can save time and money by choosing to concurrently pursue a UALR MBA. Concurrent degrees broaden students’ career options, improve their advancement opportunities, and extend their professional networks.

JD/MBA students can potentially save 18 credit hours of course work otherwise required for both degrees. PharmD/MBA students can potentially save 16 hours of coursework through the concurrent degree program. The result is a huge savings in both time and money.

Candidates must apply to and meet admission requirements for both programs. In many cases, the GMAT/GRE MBA admission requirement may be waived saving even more time and money. Students planning to pursue concurrent degrees must file a completed Declaration of Intent to Pursue a Concurrent Degree form with each program. Tuition and fees are paid directly to each institution.
