Dual Degree Programs
You may decide that your career goals lead you to building expertise in more than one area. Fisher College of Business' MBA program offers dual degrees in association with Ohio State University's other graduate schools, some of which are among the nation's most reputable programs. Because some courses can be counted toward both degrees, you can complete the two degrees in less time than it would take to earn them individually.
Applicants to a dual-degree program must be admitted separately both to Fisher and to the other school of choice. Applicants must indicate their interest in a particular dual-degree program when applying to Fisher.
Master of Public Administration / MBA
The dual Masters of Business Administration and Master of Public Administration Program between Fisher College of Business and the John Glenn School of Public Affairs prepares you for a career in management and finance within non-profit and public sector organizations.
Juris Doctor / MBA
Complementing your knowledge from your MBA studies with a JD degree - earned simultaneously - promises to be a potent cocktail for success. Whether you choose to practice law for the business community or want to pursue a career as a business person with legal training, you will profit from a greater understanding of both disciplines.
Doctor of Medicine / MBA
Increasingly, the system requires physicians with advanced skills in business, finance, organization management and even marketing. The MD/MBA degree also proves enormously useful to doctors in private-practice settings, which often demand superior managerial skills.
Master in Health Administration / MBA
The demand is increasing for health professionals who can effectively manage limited resources in a rapidly changing health care environment. Earning a Master's in Health Administration (M.H.A.) parallel with a MBA allows professionals interested in health care administration to get a solid education in business, making them experts in their fields.
PharmD / MBA
Teaming up a pharmacy degree with an MBA will allow you to not only save time by doubling up but also to be an attractive candidate for a leadership role in the pharmaceutical industry, community pharmacy practice, health care institution such as hospitals, health maintenance organizations, or academia.
