Why Pursue a dual MBA/MPH?

Combine your degrees and use the expertise and skills gained in business and management toward solving crucial health and healthcare issues faced by public and private organizations worldwide. The dual MBA/MPH degree program provides an avenue for students seeking to advance their business and public health skills to enroll in both degree programs concurrently. The dual program saves students time, and costs are reduced by about 25% compared to earning the two degrees independently. Shared crediting of some coursework also makes it possible for students to complete both degrees in as little as three years.
