Pfeiffer’s joint degree MHA - MBA program at Pfeiffer University incorporates an efficient combination of the most significant components of the master of business administration and master of health administration programs. 


The MHA - MBA course of study culminates with neither a separate MHA or a separate MBA; rather, the joint degree MHA/MBA is an intensive single degree program.
