Accelerated M.B.A./M.P.H. Program in Health Care Management
The Accelerated M.B.A./M.P.H. Program in Health Care Management enables students to earn an M.B.A. degree from the Yale School of Management (SOM) and an M.P.H. degree from the Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) in a twenty-two-month integrated program. The program is designed to provide future health care leaders with the interdisciplinary training and perspective needed to address complex and multidimensional industry challenges.
Students begin the program with an intensive summer session at YSPH, where they complete M.P.H. core courses in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. The first year is spent at SOM, and students take courses at both schools during the final year.
In this program, students complete a minimum of 14 course units at YSPH and 52 course units at SOM, which include 34.5 units of core requirements and 17.5 elective course units.
