D.O.-MBA Program

The Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Eli Broad College of Business offer a dual-degree program for highly motivated students who are interested in developing business competency in medical practice and want to prepare for careers in health care leadership.

Graduates will gain expanded career opportunities and reinforce their clinical education in the marketplace. The program is designed to be completed in five years. The MBA portion of the joint degree specializes in management, strategy and leadership.

Students who go through the dual degree will complete their first two years in the D.O. program. The third year focuses on MBA classes and then during the fourth and fifth years students fulfill the requirements of the D.O. program (while completing the rest of their MBA credits online). Applicants must fulfill both the D.O. application and MBA application requirements to be considered for the dual degree.
