Georgia Tech Partners With the Morehouse School of Medicine to Offer Dual MD/MBA Degree

The Georgia Institute of Technology and the Morehouse School of Medicine have partnered together to offer a joint, five-year MD/MBA degree. Students will complete three years as medical students at Morehouse followed by a one-year, three-semester MBA program at Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business. The final year, they will return to Morehouse to complete their fourth year of medical school.

By offering this dual degree, both institutions have committed to preparing students to provide high-quality healthcare in a smart and efficient way. “Tomorrow’s physician must be business savvy, possess a lot of financial and managerial acumen, and also be entrepreneurial in their mindset,” said Maryam Alavi, dean of the Scheller College of Business. “Our curriculum not only develops managerial and financial acumen, but also develops tech savvy and entrepreneurial thinking. This combination of skills enables our MD/MBA students to thrive and excel as physicians.”
