Apply to the MD/MBA
The University of Illinois College of Medicine sponsors two MD/MBA programs: one is offered through the Chicago campus and is in partnership with UIC’s Master of Business Administration program, and the other is offered through the Urbana campus’s Medical Scholars Program (MSP). Given the changing, highly competitive world of health care, there is a great demand by health care professionals, especially doctors, for business education. Both the MD and the MBA degree are highly sought after, with many doctors returning to school to get the MBA. The joint-degree program satisfies the demand by making both degrees attainable in five years.
Applicants to the MD/MBA program must:
- Apply to the UI College of Medicine through the American Medical College Application Service, (AMCAS), and check the box expressing interest in the MD/MBA joint degree program.
- During the M1 year, apply to the UIC Master of Business Administration Program through the MBA program at UIC or through the MSP/MBA program at the Urbana campus. Students applying to the College of Business Administration are required to take the GMAT exam.
Length of Program: Full-time students may complete the degree in 5 years.
