The School of Business and the Wegmans School of Pharmacy at St. John Fisher College have established a joint Pharm.D./MBA program. The goal of this cooperative program is to educate students to assume responsibilities of management, executive, and administrative positions within the healthcare pharmaceutical industry, as well as health care delivery systems that provide pharmaceutical information, services, and products to patients.
The Wegmans School of Pharmacy’s Doctor of Pharmacy program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education and the School of Business MBA program is accredited by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Both programs are individually and jointly registered with NYSED.
Students in the School of Pharmacy may apply to the Joint Pharm.D./MBA program after the completion of the spring semester of their first year by completing a Petition for Program Change, available through the Office of the Registrar. The Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Business Administration degrees will be granted individually as each degree program requirements are met.
At any point, should a student no longer wish to pursue the joint degree program, he/she will need to petition for a change of program and move to the standalone pharmacy degree program to complete the degree requirements. After a student completes the pharmacy degree, should he/she wish to re-enroll in the MBA program, an accelerated application will need to be completed and any new degree requirements met.
