The University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine and the College of Business offer a dual Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program that allows students to be admitted in both programs and achieve the DMD and MBA degrees. As a concurrent program, the dual degree requires that students satisfy the degree requirements of both programs.

The MBA degree at UNLV requires 48 credit hours. The Dental degree requires 195 credit hours. Under the dual degree program fifteen credit hours of dental courses are accepted towards the MBA degree.

Admission Requirements

Applicants to the DMD/MBA program must submit formal applications for admission to both the School of Dental Medicine and to the College of Business. Students must meet the requirements for admission to both programs. Admissions requirements are the same as those stated under the DMD and MBA programs. Contact the UNLV School of Dental Medicine and the College of Business MBA programs for further information on admissions requirements. Applications from current students in either program will be considered. Entry into the MBA program for students from School of Dental Medicine will be no earlier than the Fall semester of year two of the dental curriculum. However, petitions requesting admission to the dual DMD/MBA program from students at more advanced stages will be considered.
