NC State DVM Students treating lizard

DVM Professional Program

Ranked as one of the top veterinary educational programs in North America, the CVM is the one of the few to offer an onsite teaching animal unit that operates as a working farm.

Combined Degree Programs 

The College of Veterinary Medicine offers students of the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Professional Program the opportunity to combine their DVM degree with either an MBA offered through the NC State Jenkins Graduate School of Management in the Poole College of Management or a PhD offered through the NC State Graduate School. Each option allows students to enhance their knowledge and combine their interests to customize their degree.

Applicants interested in a combined degree program must be accepted by both colleges – the College of Veterinary Medicine and either the Poole College of Management or the NC State Graduate School. The DVM application is handled through a national application procedure – the Veterinary Medical Common Application system or VMCAS. The College of Veterinary Medicine also requires a supplemental application that contains questions to determine the applicant’s interest in the MBA program or the PhD program. Once accepted to the DVM program, the student must then apply to the college offering the combined degree in which he or she is interested.
