I truly believe that the MPH program in Health Care Management at Yale School of Public Health will provide me with comprehensive insight into management in the context of health care while equipping me with the invaluable skills needed to improve the health of populations.

Accelerated MBA/MPH in Health Care Management

The Class of 2020 at the School of Management.

This innovative program, the first of its kind in the United States, enables students to earn an MBA and an MPH in just 22 months through intensive study at the Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) and the Yale School of Management (SOM). Qualified students will complete core coursework in management and public health, providing them with knowledge and skills to become leaders in health care organizations across the globe.

Coursework begins in the summer at YSPH. Students will complete degree requirements through a combination of required and elective courses at SOM and YSPH. Elective coursework may be taken at SOM, YSPH or another Yale school. Additionally, students will participate in SOM’s International Experience, and will complete an internship in the health care industry in the summer between their first and second year.

This joint degree program requires that applicants apply and gain admission to both schools. For more information about SOM’s application procedures and requirements, please see SOM’s admissions page.
