Dual-Degree Programs MD/MBA MD/MPH MD/MS-BATS MD/PhD Medical Degree with Master of Business Administration (MD/MBA) The UCI School of Medicine offers five programs that allow our medical students to earn concurrent degrees and tailor their studies to particular career interests and goals. Home Education Medical Education Dual-Degree Programs MD/MBA Overview The MD/Master of Business Administration program requires five years for completion. It is aimed at individuals who are exceptional in ability and motivation and who seek a career as physicians with major responsibility for administration and management in health care organizations and institutions. Students in this program pursue a combined curriculum for an MD from the School of Medicine and an MBA from The Paul Merage School of Business. Application Process Students must be currently enrolled in the MD program in order to apply to the combined MD/MBA program. During their second year of medical school, interested students submit an application to The Paul Merage School of Business Admissions Committee, after review by the School of Medicine. Final acceptance to the program is granted by The Paul Merage School of Business, and MBA course work begins following completion of the student’s third year of medical school. Students should be aware that enrollment in the MD program does not guarantee acceptance into the MBA program. The MCAT, along with the completion of three years of medical school training in good standing and passage of USMLE Step 1, currently serve as a waiver for the GMAT entrance examination usually required for application to the MBA program.
