The MPH/MBA is a three year concurrent degree program in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health Department of Health Policy and Management and the UCLA Anderson School. Students successfully completing the program will be awarded both the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree and the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. The program's concurrent nature allows students to develop and integrate their skills more effectively than if the degrees were obtained sequentially.
This program is for individuals desiring a management career in health care and related fields and who wish in-depth professional preparation for such a career. Its establishment reflects the combined interest of employers, faculty, and students who have recognized the increasing challenges facing managers in the health care industry and the need for individuals who are skilled in dealing with these challenges.
This concurrent degree program requires a minimum of 14 courses (52 units) in the School of Public Health and a summer internship in a healthcare organization.
