New York University’s Stern School of Business Launches Joint Business, Medical Degree

New York University’s Stern School of Business will now offer an MD/MBA dual degree program with the NYU School of Medicine, enabling students to complete both degrees within five years, the schools announced yesterday. With this new offering, NYU Stern joins business schools at several other top U.S. universities – including Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Dartmouth, and Duke – which offer similar programs.

“A changing healthcare environment increasingly requires physician leaders to manage the business of medicine as part of patient care,” Stern Dean Peter Henry said in a statement. “Our new dual degree program will provide aspiring physicians with the interdisciplinary perspective, business skills and medical expertise to shape the future of healthcare.”

Students in the new dual degree program at Stern will spend their first three years at the School of Medicine studying full time. From the summer of the third year through the spring semester of the fourth year they will take MBA courses at Stern. They will return to the medical school for the summer and fall of the fifth year and complete a final semester at Stern in the spring of their fifth year.

Beginning now, prospective applicants may apply concurrently to both the MBA and MD programs and must gain admission to both programs. Each school manages its own admissions process, and candidates must complete separate applications for each. Current students in the NYU School of Medicine’s C21 curriculum may also apply to the Stern School to take part in the new dual degree offering.
