The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management (Drucker) along with the School of Community and Global Health (SCGH) of Claremont Graduate University offer a dual degree program in business administration and public health (MBA/MPH) that provides leadership and management training for the health services industry at the local, national and international levels.
A dual MBA/MPH program offers comprehensive knowledge and competencies in public health sciences (foundations of health behavior, public health policy and practice, principles of biostatistics, principles of epidemiology, environmental and occupational health) and state-of-the-art business practices (finance, accounting and marketing combined with strategic thinking, entrepreneurship and value-based management).
Health care is the largest single sector of the economy and requires much more effective management and leadership at all levels of care and delivery – from prevention programs to hospital treatment. In addition to being the largest sector of the economy, health care is the only major sector that is continuing to grow and for which job opportunities remain vast.
The program prepares graduates for health industry leadership positions in fields such as pharmaceutical marketing, health care marketing, healthcare consulting, hospital administration, managed care, biotechnology, and healthcare related non-profit work.
