Montclair State University will launch dual graduate program in the fall, offering a master of public health in health systems administration and policy, and master of business administration.

The dual degree program will prepare graduates with unique qualifications to meet current health-care system and public health challenges, according to an MSU press release.

"In this climate of heightened need for and awareness of excellent public health management, the 'marriage' of our business and public health curricula will provide our graduates and their communities with outstanding resources to meet present and future challenges," Elizabeth Rosini, associate dean of the Feliciano School of Business, said in the release.

The master of public health curriculum is shaped around the core public health principles of health equity and social justice as the means to improve the health-care system and overall population health, the release said. The master of business administration curriculum instills core business competencies with a real-world focus on innovative problem-solving and global strategic thinking.
