The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School offer a combined Master of Public Health and Master of Business Administration degree.
The required coursework of this full-time program of study will enable students to integrate the philosophies, functions and competencies of the seemingly disparate fields of public health and business. Students can pursue the 18-month or the 21-month option. The 21-month option allows for a domestic or international internship experience during the second summer of the program. Students in the MPH/MBA program will acquire knowledge and skills in the principles of population-based health as well as finance and management, which will enable them to be effective managers and leaders in health-related agencies and organizations. Graduates will be able to assess the public health needs of a defined population; develop, analyze and implement targeted health policies and programs; lead the process of change within one's own organization and community; manage health care organizations to achieve identified goals; and communicate messages to targeted audiences.
