MPH and MBA Dual Degree Program

About the Dual MPH/MBA

The Master of Public Health (MPH) / Master of Business Administration (MBA) dual degree provides the opportunity for students to hone their business skills while equipping them with the training necessary to make a difference in today's public health and healthcare worlds.

Over the three-year plan of study, students will alternate MPH and MBA courses, allowing for integrated learning at Drexel's Dornsife School of Public Health and LeBow College of Business.

The MPH, with a major in Health Management and Policy, provides state-of-the-art core competencies in public health and the option to concentrate in either Management or Policy, as well as extensive opportunities for community, practice, and research engagement.

The Drexel LeBow MBA offers a customizable, cross-disciplinary plan of study that prepares students to solve complex business problems across industries.

The rigorous, comprehensive degree program is designed to emphasize the broad perspective of business knowledge and concepts through innovative coursework, experiential learning and career coaching. Grounded by a strong academic foundation in business, the program offers several opportunities to specialize and align students' specific area of interest through elective courses.


The Dornsife School of Public Health and LeBow College of Business seek students with intellectual and interpersonal competencies as well as those with potential for leadership. The Dornsife School of Public Health has set a high priority on establishing a student body that is representative of the nation's population.
