University at Buffalo Launches MBA Program for Medical Residents

Accelerated program can be completed in three semesters

New York's University at Buffalo School of Management is now offering an accelerated MBA program specifically for the university's medical residents.

The program is offered in partnership with the university's School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and allows UB residents and fellows in any graduate medical education specialty to complete an MBA in three quarters, rather than the usual four.

“As the economics of medicine evolve with health care reform, physicians with MBA degrees will be ahead of the curve,” says Arjang Assad, dean of the UB School of Management.

Residents can start on the MBA coursework after their first year of residency; the MBA must be completed before the end of their last year.

The program is set to launch this fall.

For more information, please see the UB press release announcing the launch of the Accelerated MBA for Residents/Fellows.
