Texas A&M Health Science Center Rangel College of Pharmacy and the Texas A&M-Kingsville College of Business Administration are partnered to provide students of pharmacy the opportunity to earn two degrees, the Doctor of Pharmacy and the Master of Business Administration, in parallel. Thus, when students graduate, they are prepared not only for the clinical aspect of Pharmacy, but will also have the business background and skills necessary to enter management positions within the pharmacy. Students are able to earn an MBA degree in less time and at a lower expense than if they were to pursue the two degrees independently.
