University of Houston - Clear Lake to Offer an MBA/MD Program

Both degrees can be completed in five years

The University of Houston-Clear Lake has partnered with the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) to launch a dual-degree MBA/MD program.

The new joint program is "geared toward medical students who wish to go onto private or group practice, health system administration or into the fields of biotechnology, health system management or entrepreneurship aspects of health care," according to a press release from the school.

Both degrees can be completed in as little as five years.

Medical students who wish to pursue the joint program will take one year off from their medical studies—preferably between their third and fourth years—to take business classes. Classes for the MBA program can be completed either online or on campus.

Although UH-Clear Lake requires prospective students to take the GRE as part of the MBA admissions process, for MBA/MD students the MCAT can be substituted.

UH-Clear Lake is accredited by AACSB International.

Medical students who want to pair their MD with an AACSB-accredited MBA in the Houston area also have the option of pursuing the joint MBA/MD offered through a partnership between Rice University's Jones Graduate School of Business and the Baylor College of Medicine. 

The new UH-Clear Lake program is set to launch in 2016. The school will begin accepting applications for the program in January 2016.

For more information, please see the University of Houston's news release announcing the launch of the MD/MBA program.
