The MBA/MHA Dual Degree program was developed for students already accepted into the University of Minnesota’s Master of Business Administration Program. This program serves students who wish to earn an MHA degree as well as their MBA degree. Candidates may apply for both programs at the same time or current Full-Time MBA students may apply to the MHA Program during fall of their first year of study in the MBA program. Under this study plan students begin the MHA in Fall Semester of year two. Both degrees can be completed in three years. To complete in this time frame students will carry a very demanding course load. After acceptance into the dual degree program, students meet with both their MHA and MBA advisors to be sure that their study plan satisfy both degree requirements. While the dual degree MHA/MBA enables students to complete in a shorter time frame, it does not diminish the cost or number of credits required for each program.
