What is an MBA and Master of Public Health?

The Master of Business Administration and Master of Public Health combines the leadership and management training gained from an MBA with a range of public health skills. Designed for health professionals with an undergraduate degree or recognised professional qualification in a relevant discipline, it offers a deeper understanding of environmental health issues and policies, cultural determinants of health and health programming, and effective decision-making in a global context
In this dual degree, you will further develop your cognitive, technical and creative skills to develop strong business acumen in the context of public health. This course will develop strong knowledge of both disciplines to critically analyse and evaluate health promotion and disease prevention, advocacy, leadership and management and epidemiology to undertake demanding management roles in government, allied health, aid and development, hospitals and health service departments.
