D.O./Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)
New York Institute of Technology has developed a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program that allows College of Osteopathic Medicine students the opportunity to complete an online M.B.A. degree program, offered by the School of Management, while pursuing their D.O. degree. Enrollment in this Concurrent Degree Program is contingent upon College of Osteopathic Medicine approval. The online M.B.A. degree program enhances the graduate’s efficiency and skills as a clinician by equipping him/her for the business side of medicine. The student learns to effectively manage resources, including time, money, equipment, and personnel, and becomes prepared to cope with practice management, HMOs, and the administration of academic healthcare centers, hospitals, and clinical departments. The online M.B.A. curricular program culminates in nine elective credits relating to healthcare management and a 3-credit capstone course.
An applicant must have successfully matriculated and completed their first year at the College of Osteopathic Medicine, as well as have the College of Osteopathic Medicine’s approval to apply for the program. Students who have not completed required undergraduate accounting, economics, and computer-related courses will be scheduled to complete them at the onset of the program.
