M.P.H./M.B.A. Dual Degree
The M.P.H./M.B.A. program provides an opportunity to earn a dual degree through an integrated curriculum. The joint M.B.A./MPH degree is designed to prepare graduates with managerial and executive level career aspirations at the interface of healthcare delivery and business. The successful completion of the dual degree leads to the awarding of two degrees. The Master of Public Health degree is awarded by the College of Health and Human Services and the M.B.A. is awarded by the College of Business and Innovation. Students enrolled in the dual degree program can receive the M.P.H. or M.B.A. degree independently. The M.B.A. degree requires a minimum of 33 credit hours at the 6000-level. Up to an additional 18 credit hours may be required if a student does not have an academic background in business. The College of Business and Innovation will allow up to 9 credit hours of appropriate M.P.H. coursework to be credited toward the M.B.A. degree.
