Dual Degree Programs


The MD/MBA program is a collaborative effort on the part of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and Rutgers Business School-New Brunswick. The MBA requires the completion of 60 credits of course work. This includes 30 credits of required "core" MBA courses focused on accounting, economics, finance, decision analysis, marketing strategy, statistics, information technology systems, business law, and management strategies. Courses on health administration and policy are offered by UMDNJ-School of Public Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Department of Environmental and Community Medicine.

The MD and MBA degrees are accomplished during the course of a 5 year medical school program. Students apply to the Rutgers Business School-New Brunswick for admission to the MBA during their first year of medical school. During the summer following the first year, students will complete 6 credits of management courses. The second year of the program is devoted to full-time course work in the Business School. During the third year, students resume the medical school curriculum, as well as complete 3 credits of business school requirements. The scheduling of courses within the 5-year period of the program is fixed to assure articulation of MD and MBA requirements within this time frame.
