Hone your skillset with diverse perspectives and an entrepreneurial mindset. The WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Carson College of Business offers you a unique opportunity to understand the pharmacy business and learn skills to draft a business plan. According to US News & World Report, the WSU online MBA ranks as one of the top 20 online programs in the country. Through this innovative and flexible program, you will be able to complete your Doctor of Pharmacy in person while networking with peers around the world virtually.
This dual degree and certificate program saves students time and money as crossover elective courses can be applied to both the PharmD and MBA degree.
The Carson College of Business believes academics should reflect real life. The online MBA courses are designed to equip you with in-demand knowledge that you can use right now and throughout your entire career. You will do more than learn business terminology—you will study live business cases, examine strategic plans, and complete a hands-on capstone project based on actual scenarios from the business world. Student pharmacists in particular will focus on pharmacy-related business models.
This collaboration is a result of the colleges’ combined missions to develop outstanding health care professionals, prepare leaders in the pharmacy profession, develop globally competitive business leaders, and create value for communities.
Not sure if the online MBA is right for you? Professionals seeking to enhance their business background can choose a concentration in marketing, finance, hospital business management, international business, or a general business administration as a nine-credit graduate certificate. Students pursuing a certificate follow the same enrollment requirements as those seeking admission to the online MBA program.
