Some students choose to earn a graduate degree in conjunction with a Public Health / Master of Business Administration degree at Rutgers University. Earning a dual degree at Rutgers can reduce the time it takes to complete both programs by up to one year, saving you time and money while exponentially increasing your career potential.

About

The Public Health / Master of Business Administration dual degree program is offered by the Rutgers University. The program is designed to prepare students for administrative positions in the complex and evolving health care industry. This is a full-time or part-time program that requires the completion of up to 84 credits. Upon completion of the required coursework, students receive the Master of Public Health (MPH) from Rutgers School of Public Health and the Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Rutgers Business School. Applicants to the dual degree program must take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and be approved for admission by both the Rutgers School of Public Health and Rutgers Business School.
