Set Yourself Apart with a Dual Degree

Pharmacy seeks to inspire, education, and support innovative leaders to advance the common good in a diverse world.  Set yourself and expand your career opportunities with a dual degree. The College of Pharmacy collaborates with schools across our Duluth and Twin Cities campuses to offer Pharmacy students the ability to earn an MBA or MPH degree while completing the PharmD Program.

PharmD / MBA Programs

Pharmacists with an MBA can enter into management positions within a wide variety of pharmacy settings, creating efficient, effective care delivery systems from day one. After establishing your studies in the Doctor of Pharmacy program, you will enter the MBA program earning a complete MBA as you finish your PharmD.

PharmD/ MPH Program

There is a need to expand the team-based health care approach to protect the health of our population. The role of today’s pharmacist is evolving into an active participant in managing chronic disease. The role of public health coincides with the work of a pharmacist by providing education on policy, patient education and population management.

  • School of Public Health PharmD/ MPH Dual Degree Program

    Enrolled PharmD students (Duluth or Twin Cities campus) have the opportunity to additionally earn their MPH, a degree program that prepares them for impacting policies, providing education to patients in order to manage diseases, conduct research on drug interactions/therapies and alternative herbal medications at all levels – from the local, regional and state to the national and international levels – at the intersection of government, non-profit and private sectors.

    A Public Health Pharmacist can be involved in advanced pharmacy practice, health policy development, emergency and humanitarian response, public health leadership, global health and much more.
