Dual Degree Programs
Maximize your Graduate Education with a Dual Degree
At The Citadel, students have the opportunity to pursue an additional graduate degree or certificate while earning their MBA. By enrolling in both programs at the same time, a student is able to minimize time spent and cost, as courses are used towards both programs. Graduates of both programs will have the creditials to set themselves apart from the competion. Presently, three graduate dual degree programs are offered:
Currently, students may earn their MBA and Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degrees simultaneously through The Citadel's partnership with the Medical College of South Carolina (MUSC). This program helps to meet the need for pharmacists to understand general business principles in addition to direct patient care activities. The dual degree is considered highly desirable for persons seeking careers in institutional practice settings, the pharmaceutical industry, pharmacy benefit management organizations, and academia.
The Citadel has partnered with the faculty of medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) to offer a dual degree program through which students may concurrently complete the Doctor of Medicine (MD) conferred by the MUSC and the MBA conferred by The Citadel. Individuals must apply and be accepted into both programs in order to pursue this option. MD students may begin MBA coursework during Summer School sessions preceding the first year of medical education and continue during Summer School sessions between the first and second years of medical education and during the academic year following the third year of medical education.
In addition, an MBA and Technical Project Management (TPM) Certificate may be earned simultaneously between the Schools of Business and Engineering. To build this into your course of study, a student’s elective courses are revised to cover the program of choice’s requirements. The Technical Project Management Certificate adheres to the industry standard, PMBOK. MBA students can elect to take two of the TPM courses as electives. Students must receive admission to both the MBA and TPM program prior to registration. To read more about the TPM certificate, click here.
