MBA Degree With Pharmacy Management Concentration

The Fogelman College of Business and Economics of The University of Memphis, in collaboration with the College of Pharmacy, announces the offering of an MBA Degree with a Pharmacy Practice Management Concentration. The program can be taken on a part–time or full–time basis, with classes offered in the evenings and online. This 45–credit–hour program is designed for current and future pharmacists who face the challenge of leading and managing large pharmacy operations, such as those in hospitals and community pharmacies, as a business enterprise. Of the 45–credit hours, 30 consist of standard MBA core courses and 15–credit hours are targeted pharmacy practice management courses taken at The University of Memphis or at the UT Health Science Center, depending on the course. These include required and elective courses chosen from among Healthcare Economics, Seminar in Human Resource Management, Self–Leadership for Executives, Pharmacoeconomics, Health Informatics and E–Health, and Strategies for Health Policy Formulation and Planning. Included in the 15–credit–hour concentration is a required, 3–credit–hour internship or practicum in which the student will put the material being taught into practice in a pharmacy work environment.
