Changes in the health care delivery system in the United States have created a substantial demand for persons with both public health backgrounds and business administration skills, making the pursuit of the MPH and MBA degrees an attractive option.
Why UAB MBA?
The UAB Collat School of Business offers a world-class business education in the heart of Alabama’s economic center and is fully accredited by AACSB International, the most prestigious accrediting agency for business education in the world. Students have unfettered access to Birmingham’s business elite, who provide real-world instruction in applying theoretical learning to actual business situations. Additionally, UAB’s MBA faculty include some of the most sought-after thought leaders in their fields, those pushing the boundaries with topical, practical research that goes beyond the “why” to also ask “what if”. The school’s location near downtown Birmingham provides endless opportunities to infuse experiential learning into the traditional classroom experience.
Students who wish to pursue coordinated MPH/MBA degrees must apply and be admitted to the MPH program and the MBA program independently. In this dual degree program, students can apply 2 courses from the MPH program toward the MBA program as electives, leaving MPH/MBA students with 10 courses to take in the MBA program. Evening and online courses are offered by both the MPH and MBA program.
