New Dual Degree at WVU Injects Business Knowledge Into Public Health
Date:9/12/2013

Morgantown, West Virginia (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

The health care field now requires an increasing amount of business knowledge, which is why West Virginia University’s College of Business and Economics and School of Public Health have partnered to create a dual degree program that will infuse business into the field of public health.

The MBA/MPH (Master of Business Administration/Master of Public Health) dual degree program will provide students the opportunity to obtain two degrees in two years. Housed within the Department of Health Policy, Management, and Leadership at the WVU School of Public Health, students will embark on their MPH studies the first year, and then enroll in the MBA portion in the College of Business and Economics the second year. After completion of their MBA studies, they will apply their public health and business knowledge in an internship environment. Upon successful completion of the internship, students will be awarded the MBA/MPH dual degree.

Provost Michele Wheatly is excited by the new program. “Dual-degree programs like this offer our students both the skills and the certification they really need to pursue a career. This program will graduate flexible, highly-employable young people who have had the opportunity to work with faculty across the WVU campus and to learn to ‘think outside the box’ as the best leaders do,” Wheatly said.

“The mission of the WVU School of Public Health is to improve the health of West Virginians through innovation and leadership in education, research and service,” said Jeffrey Coben, MD, Professor and Interim Dean, School of Public Health. “The MBA/MPH dual degree embodies the skills required for today’s public health fields. Public health leaders and practitioners who achieve the dual degree will gain a broader perspective of the costs and benefits of prevention and other lifestyle choices that can provide lasting health solutions for all We
