MPH/MBA Program

Through this three-year program, you will earn an MPH degree in health services administration and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.

This collaborative program facilitates an integrated course of study that prepares you for high-level management careers in health care organizations and agencies.

Curriculum

Our MPH curriculum will provide a comprehensive understanding of public health philosophy, as well as the practical knowledge and skills needed to address current and emerging public health problems. You’ll complete 46 credits, including the concentration coursework and an integrative project.

The MBA curriculum focuses on what every manager needs to know. You will complete 54 credits, which includes required foundation-building courses and flexible, career-targeted electives.

A practicum in the MBA portion of the program will satisfy the MPH requirement of a six-credit field training experience. The School of Public Health and Health Professions will collaborate with the School of Management in identifying and evaluating appropriate venues for these experiences and in developing appropriate criteria for assessing your work.
