Medicine, M.D. & Business Administration, M.B.A. Dual Degree




What will I learn?

Graduates of this dual-degree program at Saint Louis University earn both a Doctor of Medicine and a Master of Business Administration degree (M.D./MBA).

Students in this program cultivate leadership and management skills to help them deliver optimal patient care within the rapidly changing healthcare environment.

This program includes a study abroad component where students will study foreign-based business cases, visit local businesses, and attend guest lectures. Scheduled between the fall and spring semesters, this seven-day trip provides students with the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on international business experience.

Students apply during the first two years of medical studies to the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business. The MCAT may be used in lieu of the GMAT or GRE. Upon successful completion of the first three years of medical studies, including all required clinical clerkships and steps one and two of the United States Medical License Examination, the student enters one year of business studies. Students then return to the School of Medicine to complete the fourth year.
