The master of public health (M.P.H.)/master of business administration (M.B.A.) dual-degree program is offered by Rutgers School of Public Health
and Rutgers Business School. 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 (M.P.H.) from
the School of Public Health and the master of business administration (M.B.A.) from Rutgers Business School.
If done full-time, the M.B.A. curriculum is reduced from 60 to 48 credits
while the part-time M.B.A. is reduced from 49 to 40 credits. 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 School of Public Health and Rutgers
Business School. Therefore, applicants for the M.P.H./M.B.A. program should
submit an application to each school. Course requirements for the M.P.H.
include the five core courses (15 credits) and five required courses (15
credits) for the Health Systems and Policy Department. To view the M.B.A. curriculum, please click here.
Candidates for admission are baccalaureate graduates with a superior
record of undergraduate performance and a commitment to health care
management. Students must also achieve scores on the GMAT comparable to
other Rutgers M.B.A. students.
Two or more years of management
experience is preferable but not required.
Please note that students in this dual-degree program who would like
to work with the M.B.A. Office of Career Management in order to compete
for M.B.A.-level internships and full-time positions must do the M.P.H. in
their first year and start the M.B.A. in their second year.
