2024-2025 Graduate Catalog


Admission Requirements

To pursue the MD/MBA, students must have been admitted to the Quillen College of Medicine. Application requirements for the MD program are listed in the Quillen College of Medicine Catalog. Students pursuing the MD/MBA programs must be concurrently enrolled in both programs. Application to the MBA program must be made through the ETSU School of Graduate Studies. Students in the MD/MBA will be held to the retention and graduation standards of each respective program. To be awarded both degrees, the students must complete the graduation requirements of both the MD and MBA degree programs. (Students may earn the articulated MBA without having completed the MD.)

Applicants must supply a personal essay of 150-300 words detailing their reasons for pursuing the MD/MBA programs. The GMAT is not necessary for entry into the MD/MBA program as admission to the MD program demonstrates sufficient foundational capability to complete the MBA program.

Applicants must send a letter to the Quillen College of Medicine requesting that the following application materials be sent to the ETSU School of Graduate Studies: (1) their application and (2) all transcripts from previous institutions.

MD applicants who are accepted into the MBA program and who do not have an undergraduate degree in a business field must successfully complete a self-guided online module-based program prior to enrolling in any of the following courses: ACCT 5150  ECON 5180  FNCE 5430  MGMT 5500  and/or MKTG 5217 . Access to the online modules will be available upon acceptance to the MD/MBA program.
