The DPT/MBA program is for UM-Flint Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students and graduates with an interest in Business/Healthcare Administration and/or private practice. The curriculum allows the DPT student or graduate to apply up to 15 specified credits toward both degrees. The degrees are independent; each is awarded when completed with specified credits accepted for the second degree after the first has been awarded. The MBA degree is awarded with a concentration in Health Care Management.
These dual program courses are offered in a variety of formats: online, on-campus, and NetPlus! (online with on-campus sessions every six weeks).
The student applies for admission to both degree programs independently. The GRE is required for admission to the DPT program. Thus, the DPT student does not have to complete the GMAT/GRE for admission to the MBA program.
