Program Features

A healthy society is the best environment for good business.

The Johns Hopkins dual MBA/MPH is the ideal degree program for health professionals who want to expand their business knowledge, expertise, and career opportunities.

Administered in conjunction with the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, this accelerated program teaches the managerial skills and business practices that will help you lead—and make a positive impact—in a variety of health-related organizations.

As a student in the MBA/MPH program, you’ll take many of your business courses with students from other Carey graduate degree programs, introducing you to new people and new perspectives. Electives include health care management, enterprise risk management, and more.

After graduation, Johns Hopkins MBA/MPH students have gone on to take leadership roles at for-profit and non-profit hospitals, health care organizations, NGOs, and consulting companies.
