Program Description:

The dual MBA/Master of Public Health (MBA/MPH) degree is designed to meet the growing demands for business-savvy, health policy-minded leaders across the healthcare industry spectrum. This interdisciplinary program brings together world-class faculty renowned for their scholarly research in business and public health, a cutting-edge curriculum, and timely applied-learning experiences with the industry.

The MBA/MPH program combines the foundational courses of the MBA and master of public health degrees and takes two-and-a-half to three years to complete. Students start the program in either school and stay in the school’s program for their first year. Participation in a summer internship occurs after the first year of MBA courses and a practicum after the first year of MPH courses. MBA/MPH students often pursue management roles in:

  • Hospitals
  • Pharmaceutical firms
  • Healthcare consultancies
  • Policy think tanks


  • Take GMAT or GRE
  • Must be accepted by both schools (must apply and be accepted to second school by end of first year)
  • Complete 51 credit hours in the Olin Business School program (15 transfer from MPH)
  • Complete 36 credit hours in the George Warren Brown School of Social Work program (nine credits pre-approved for transfer from MBA)
