Students with two strong interests who don't wish to choose one over the other may consider a dual graduate degree program that combines a health-related degree from the University at Buffalo with an MBA, including the following:

Earn a Doctor of Audiology (AuD) and an MBA in just five years and prepare for careers in private practice and positions with administrative responsibilities.
As a dentist, you need the clinical skills to treat your patients and the soft skills to manage your practice successfully. Learn both in five years with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) and an MBA from UB.
As the health care industry works to curb costs and improve efficiency, doctors with an MBA will be better prepared to lead small practices, clinical departments or entire health systems. Earn a Doctor of Medicine (MD) and an MBA in five years at UB.
With a Master of Social Work (MSW) and an MBA, you will have the managerial knowledge, financial savvy and leadership skills needed to help service organizations run efficiently and fulfill their mission.
With the combination of a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and an MBA from UB, you’ll be armed with the clinical, analytical and managerial skills necessary to drive businesses forward and add exceptional value to retail pharmacies, hospital settings or the pharmaceutical industry.
