The joint MHA/MBA
program presents an outstanding opportunity to become highly skilled in the management of organizations across the full spectrum of the health industry. The MHA/MBA program is an "add-on" for the regular MHA, where students simultaneously pursue both degrees in a curriculum designed to optimize the coursework for both degrees in a shortened timeline (three years, compared to four years if taken consecutively). MHA/MBA students fulfill all of the same MHA requirements as the MHA-only students, but also fulfill all of the requirements of the MBA.
Uniting the strengths of the Graduate School of Public Health and the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, the MHA/MBA program creates an outstanding portfolio of in-depth exposure to the health industry with leadership, analytical, and decision-making skills focused on finance, strategy, quality improvement, supply chain, analytics, and a host of other tools to effectively lead large organizations. The MHA/MBA seeks people interested in pursuing executive roles outside of healthcare delivery (e.g. consulting, insurance, biotech, pharmaceutical, etc.) or functional-area roles across the health industry (e.g. finance, strategic planning, marketing, supply chain, human resources, IM/IT, etc.). Prospective applicants who wish to pursue operational roles within healthcare delivery should pursue the MHA program.
