      Most DOP positions only require a PharmD or a BSPharm, but some positions may require additional qualifications like a MBA/MPA. If your ultimate goal is upper management, I would recommend a dual degree like the PharmD/MBA or MPA. Its not necessarily a requirement but it would definitely help a lot.

        I don't think you understand what im staying, I want to work for a drug company OR be a director of pharm @ a hospital
        I don't think you understand what you're saying. DOPs have to fight off drug reps, because most of the reps' products aren't on the hospital formularies for good reason.
        So basically, what you're saying is that you want to be one extreme or the other.

        I hate to rehash cliches, but GO STUDY. I study off and on all day long, so if you want to get into pharmacy school and become a student, you need to make better use of yourself. Also, you need to have a better understanding of the different branches within the profession before you can narrow down your choices like that, which will take time and experience.
