Earn Dual Degrees
Being able to earn two degrees at once is another way to reframe your future and nurture your intellectual curiosity. There are few better places to do that than University of California, Berkeley, where Haas students can take advantage of other top-ranked degree programs to combine an MBA with law, public health, or international area studies.
A partnership with the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, this 30-month program trains you to lead complex health services and technology organizations, managed care and insurance, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals, among others. You will earn both an MBA and an MPH in Health Policy and Management.
In addition to coursework, you complete a three-month internship. The International Business Development program offers an opportunity to complete a consulting project for health care clients.
Graduates of this four-year program gain a solid foundation in both law and management. Your first two years are spent in either Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco or Berkeley Law on the Berkeley campus. The third year you take classes at Haas, followed by a mix of electives in business and law in your final year.
As a student in this program, you also have access to the many resources of the Berkeley Center for Law and Business, a hub for research, education, and programming at the intersection of law, business, and the economy. A number of Haas professors are on the core faculty for the center or teach cross-listed courses between Berkeley Haas and Berkeley Law, as the center's areas of focus include venture capital and entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, capital markets, and mergers and acquisitions.
