The Business School and the School of Medicine offer this degree option for those students admitted into the medical program at the School of Medicine. As a medical student, you may submit your MCAT scores instead of taking the GMAT for admission. Please see graduate admissions or an advisor for more admissions information.
This is an excellent opportunity if you wish to understand the business of medicine and develop a career with medical administrative opportunities.
