I am filling out the supplemental and may want to put I am interested in the DDS/MBA program. However, when I search their website I can only find the DDS/PhD program, BUT when I type in DDS/MBA specifically on google it takes me to a section of their site where they do say they offer one. I am just confused on why I cannot find it starting at the home page of their school of dentistry website. Thoughts?

Yes they do have a DDS/MBA, same with UPenn. AND YOU ALREADY GOT A SECONDARY FROM UCLA?!?

My educated guess is that you don't apply for a DDS/MBA program but you enroll into their business school once you're done with either D1 or D2.

You apply separately and take the MBA classes separately so there's no overlap really. Almost like being in two schools at once because, well, you are.

Unless you have employment related to dentistry before starting school, the FEMBA that Anderson offers is pretty much useless and I imagine it'd be hard to gain acceptance if you fit the typical profile of a fresh out of undergrad dental student.
