Public health involves preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health through organized efforts. It is a combination of six core areas: biostatistics, epidemiology, health services administration, health education, behavioral science, and environmental science. Public health focuses on improving people’s health and quality of life through the prevention and treatment of disease and other conditions, as well as the promotion of public health measures to control the spread of disease and encourage healthier living. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree provides students with skills in the core areas of business, including accounting, finance, marketing, human resources, operations management, and others.
By enrolling in a dual MBA/MPH program, students can follow a diverse curriculum that combines the business acumen, analytical skills, and strategic planning of an MBA with the scientific knowledge and executive leadership skills needed in the health industry. It is possible to complete a dual degree program in less than three years. Some programs may require applicants to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). After completion of these degrees, students can seek high-level administrative positions in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, at venture capital and entrepreneurial start-ups, in policy development and advocacy, and health financing, insurance and consulting.
