Joint Degrees

KU School of Business currently offers four dual degree programs, which allow you to earn your MBA full time while specializing in a second discipline. Students interested in these programs must apply to both the School of Business and the other applicable school. Classes for dual degrees are held at the Lawrence campus.

Contact KU MBA if you have questions regarding the dual degree programs.


Career-Specific Joint Degree Programs:

MBA/Doctor of Medicine (MBA/MD)

The purpose of this joint degree program is to meet the demand for business courses in the MD program and prepare doctors to run their future practices or take on leadership roles in hospitals with business efficacy. The program will be offered on the Lawrence Campus and will consist of 34 credit hours of MBA coursework. Students will complete the MBA portion of the coursework in one academic year. Students who intend to apply to the MD program may be provisionally admitted to the dual MBA/MD program and complete the MBA courses in one year, as they strengthen their application to the MD program.

This program gives you an opportunity to train in the convergent fields of law and business management, particularly for those intending to engage in corporate law practice, or to enter business using law training as background.

Dual MBA/Doctor of Pharmacy students will join an MBA cohort in the fall during the sixth year of the Pharm.D. curriculum.

Dual MBA/Pharm.D. students will grad­uate at the end of August, extending their program length by only three months to earn both a Pharm.D. and an MBA from the University of Kansas. Admission in this program is restricted to students currently in the Pharm.D. program.
