A joint master of business administration (MBA)/master of public health (MPH) program is offered at several postgraduate institutions, including the UCLA School of Public Health. They cover business management courses such as accounting and finance, and public health courses such as epidemiology and health care policy. MBA programs typically require some work experience before admission.
A joint MBA/MPH degree prepares you for management roles in health care settings, such as hospital administrator, in managed care organisations, and in public sector health agencies.
The national salary range for hospital administrators was about £37,700 to £71,500 as of November 2010, according to PayScale. The range was £41,600 to £79,300 for MBA graduates.
