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, engineering, public health, or international area studies.
Students complete this four-year program with a solid foundation in both law and management, having earned a Berkeley MBA and a JD from either UC Berkeley School of Law or UC Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. Typically, your first two years are spent in law school, followed by a year in business school. During the fourth year, you take electives in both schools.
- Complete 118 units to graduate (43 in business; 75 in law)
- Register and pay fees for a minimum of eight semesters at UC Berkeley
- Complete 117 units to graduate (43 in business; 74 in law)
- Spend five semesters at Hastings and three at Haas. This allows you to avoid paying fees at both universities for the same semester. However, it means you will carry a higher-than-normal unit load during your three Haas semesters. You will still be subject to the normal pre-enrollment unit limit during the bidding process.
MBA/MPH Program in Health Management
Working together, the Haas School and the UC Berkeley School of Public Health train emerging leaders to manage complex healthcare organizations. As an MBA/MBA dual degree student, you’ll take courses in both schools over the course of this 2.5 year program, and complete a three-month internship at a healthcare organization. Students who graduate from the program earn both an MBA and a Master of Public Health degree.
Graduates are prepared for leadership in both the business and delivery sides of health services and technology industries, including managed care and insurance, consulting, biotechnology, e-health, medical devices, and pharmaceuticals.
Students in the MBA/MPH Program:
- Complete 80 total units of coursework, at least 45 from Haas and 32 from the School of Public Health. The remaining 3 units may consist of upper division or graduate courses taken from any department on campus.
- Must register for a minimum of five semesters at Berkeley.
The concurrent degree program is designed to help address the need in the high-tech industry for leaders who possess both technical skills and business acumen. Academic excellence combined with the innovation culture of the San Francisco Bay Area makes UC Berkeley the perfect place to prepare graduates from this selective program to be leaders in technological innovation and entrepreneurship.
The four-semester MBA/MEng program is fully integrated, with students taking courses in both business and engineering. An integral part of the program is an interdisciplinary capstone project in which student teams will grapple with real-world challenges faced by companies or nonprofit or governmental organizations involving an array of business and engineering issues.
Students earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the Haas School of Business and a Master of Engineering (MEng) degree in one of seven departments at the College of Engineering, programs that are ranked among the highest in the world. Students will take both business and engineering courses, and they will participate in courses and interdisciplinary projects designed especially for the concurrent program. A list of the course requirements for the MBA/MEng program is online.
