Develop the skills to lead teams and solve challenging pharmaceutical manufacturing problems.

Overview

The Duquesne MBA/MS in Industrial Pharmacy dual degree is offered cooperatively by the Palumbo-Donahue School of Business and the School of Pharmacy. 

A combined 72 credits for these two degrees, 30 credits for the MS in Industrial Pharmacy and 42 credits for the MBA, is reduced to 61.5 minimum credits through credit-sharing.

How to Apply

  • Students must apply and be accepted to both programs of study. The GMAT or GRE is required for application to the School of Business (unless waived).
  • Students may begin their study in either the School of Business or the School of Pharmacy.
  • All grades earned toward a degree-included courses that are taken from the other program-will be calculated into the cumulative grade point average for that degree.
  • Students who successfully complete all requirements will receive two degrees and two diplomas. The degrees must be conferred simultaneously.

Tuition Information

While the student is enrolled in both the MS in Industrial Pharmacy and the MBA programs, the MS in Industrial Pharmacy tuition rate will apply for all terms except any term during which a student is enrolled exclusively in MBA courses. During those terms, the MBA program will take priority and the graduate business tuition rate will apply.
