What will I learn?

This dual degree is offered by the Lee Business School in conjunction with the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV. The world is changing quickly and today’s business leaders are faced with new challenges in a complex business environment supported by new communication technologies and organizational structures. Success in the new global marketplace requires teams of executives working across functions and across borders.

The MBA programs at UNLV prepare students to succeed in today’s business environment by providing them with the needed skills, knowledge, and tools to become visionary and creative leaders. The program focuses on ethics and critical thinking, business communications, the role of the firm and its goals and markets, firms’ strategic planning and positioning, supply chain management, international business culture, information technology, leadership, and teamwork.

The mission of the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV is to prepare a diverse student body for the delivery of patient- centered care and meaningful careers in clinical practice, research, and community service. The program integrates foundational science and primary care clinical experiences with community-based service learning that addresses population health and social disparities, incorporates independent research projects that contribute to the growth of scientific knowledge and community health resources, and develops strong commitments to public service and lifelong learning.

The curriculum is organized around the relationships between students, faculty, and the community, and provides the cognitive and technical skills necessary to succeed in any clinical environment.
