Students pursuing a JD at the William H. Bowen School of Law or a PharmD at UAMS may concurrently pursue an MBA. Concurrent enrollment allows students to simultaneously earn two graduate degrees and to count some coursework toward both programs. JD/MBA students can potentially save 18 credit hours of course work otherwise required for both degrees. PharmD/MBA students can potentially save 15 hours of coursework through the concurrent degree program.
Candidates must apply to and meet admission requirements for both programs. In most cases, the GMAT/GRE MBA admission requirement can be waived. 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.
Students pursuing concurrent JD/MBA programs must begin their studies at the Bowen Law School. For more information on pursuing a JD, please contact the Bowen School of Law. For more information on pursuing the PharmD from UAMS, contact UAMS directly.
