Is it valuable for a DVM to also have a Business degree?

I plan to go to school and major in biomedical science or animal science for my undergraduate and then go to Veterinary school. However, my parents have been encouraging me to also obtain a business degree. I am just wondering if vets believe this to be beneficial. #business #veterinarian #veterinary-medicine #biomedical

Luis Fernando’s Answer

If you're planning on having your own Vet practice, it's definitely good to also have a business degree. You'll not only have the ability to run your practice from a practical standpoint but you'll also use your business skills and knowledge to drive growth, efficiency and effectiveness to assure your practice is successful in the long term.

Everyones times and resources have limits. Even if you want to run your own practice you should be focused on the core competencies of veterinary medicine. I would focus on becoming the best Vet you can be.

Particularly at an undergraduate level, most of what you'd learn in business school you can pick up in the real world very quickly. Maybe take a few classes but a degree in business seems like the effort would be inordinate.
