The Saint Louis University School of Medicine and the John Cook School of Business jointly administer a MD/MBA dual degree, full-time program.

Graduates of SLU’s dual MD/MBA program earn both a Doctor of Medicine degree and a Master of Business Administration. The MD/MBA students can begin the MBA portion of their degree upon the completion of either their second or third year of enrollment in the School of Medicine. Students will cultivate leadership and management skills to help them deliver optimal patient care with the rapidly changing healthcare environment.

This program includes a study abroad component where students will study foreign-based business cases, visit local businesses, and attend guest lectures. Scheduled between the fall and spring semesters, this ten-day trip provides students with the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on international business experience.
