Management (MBA/MPH in Public Health)

Our Master of Business Administration/Master of Public Health (MBA/MPH) degree develops students’ managerial acumen and their expertise as public health professionals.
Jointly offered by the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, 84-credit MBA/MPH provides you with the opportunity to earn advanced degrees in two highly complementary fields--business and public health.  The landscape for healthcare managers is radically changing with advances in technology, shifts in demographics, and the aging of the population.  Success in this highly competitive field not only requires skills in finance and operations, but also an in-depth understanding of disease prevention and health promotion at the organizational and community level. The joint degree is designed for committed and enterprising students who want to take advantage of the growing emphasis on public health and population health in the design and delivery of healthcare.
The MBA/MPH program allows students to obtain both degrees in as little as three years of full-time course work.  This rigorous program is designed for highly motivated students who work or plan to work in management, executive, or consulting positions in community/population health.  To enter this program, prospective students must complete admissions applications and be accepted for both the MBA and the MPH programs.
