Earn a Dual MBA/MPH Degree–100% Online

Double Your ROI with a Powerhouse Degree

Bring your potential to life.

Health care is currently the fifth-largest industry in the U.S.1 As an industry that evolves almost as quickly as the technologies that drive it, the business of health care can be as complex as patient care. It takes a unique understanding of both to successfully shepherd organizations and government agencies.

Through Benedictine University’s online Dual Master of Business Administration/Master of Public Health (MBA/MPH) program, you’ll combine advanced business studies with coursework in public health. You will earn this advanced degree in just 24 courses—as opposed to the 33 courses that would be required to complete each individually.

As part of your MBA program, you can choose to add one of the following in-demand concentrations: Digital Marketing or Project Management. Upon graduation, you’ll be poised to take on leadership roles in public health in both the private and governmental sectors.

When you make the choice to earn your online degree from Benedictine University, you choose to not compromise. Your career stays on track as you balance online classes with work and you graduate with enhanced skills and a degree from a prestigious and historic university. Compromise is not in our vocabulary…nor should it be in yours.
