Academically qualified students entering the School of Podiatric Medicine may have the option of obtaining a dual Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree from Barry University’s D. Inez Andreas School of Business. If accepted into the dual degree program, in addition to the podiatric medical curriculum, eligible students must complete 27 semester hours of required graduate business core courses.
Enrollment in the DPM/MBA dual degree program will not add to the length of your study. By adding only one or two business courses per semester to the regular DPM curriculum you will obtain the necessary didactic experience for the MBA degree. This is a distinct advantage over similar programs in allopathic or osteopathic schools, which usually require an additional year of study.
During the first year of enrollment in the School of Podiatric Medicine, students must indicate their interest in obtaining the dual degree.
