What if you could work toward an MBA at the same time you go to optometry school? A joint program between the SUNY College of Optometry and Empire State College makes that possible.

The 18-credit certificate in optometry business management is designed to help ODs who want to get an advanced business education to complement their clinical training. According to the news release from its launch, "While dozens of medical, dental and other professional clinical educational institutions in the United States have introduced joint clinical/business education programs over the last decade, this partnership between SUNY College of Optometry and SUNY Empire State College would create the first such joint program to be offered by a school of optometry in the United States."
