The Master of Business Administration/Master of Public Health dual degree program is offered by the Health Sector Management Program in the School of Management and the International Health Department in the School of Public Health. The MBA/MPH is an accelerated, full-time program leading to the award of both the MBA and the MPH degrees in two years, including summers. MBA/MPH in Global Health and Management The Health Sector Management (PMM) Program at SMG and the Department of International Health (IH) at SPH offer a track for the dual degree MBA/MPH program focusing on global health (GH). The goal of the two-year, full-time program is to provide students with a solid foundation in both management and public health in an integrated, structured curriculum that focuses on international health systems and global health issues. This program is geared toward foreign and American students who will lead and manage institutions working to ameliorate the health of populations in resource-constrained settings around the world. The global health focus as part of the dual degree will help students understand the context in which international health policy, financing, and management decisions are made. Students will have the opportunity to apply management skills to practical challenges in their field of programmatic interest, such as pharmaceutical policy and management, HIV and AIDS, or global health management consulting.
