MBA/Healthcare Policy & Management

Program Structure

The MBA/MSHCPM is a 2.5-year (5 semester) program beginning in August. It is designed to educate candidates about the economic, political and financial environment in which health care is delivered and the understanding of how to manage and lead organizations across health care in the future.  This program is offered by the Tepper School of Business and the H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management.

Students will begin at Tepper and must complete 162 units of courses, which includes 90 units of required core courses and 72 units of required electives. Students must also meet all MBA requirements such as Management Game, Core Elective Requirements, Concentrations and Breath. Students are required to take 180 units of course work at Heinz which includes 120 units of Heinz required courses and 60 units of electives which could be taken in the MBA program and count towards the satisfaction of the MSHCPM requirement.

Students are responsible for 3 semesters of tuition to the Tepper School at the MBA full-time rate and two semesters of tuition to the Heinz School at the full time rate. In the first year, students will pay tuition for two semesters to Tepper at the MBA full-time rate. In the second year, students will pay tuition for two semesters to Heinz at the full time rate. For the final semester (5th) students will pay for one semester to Tepper at the MBA full time rate.


Each applicant must satisfy the admission requirements of the MBA program at the Tepper School and the MSHCPM at the Heinz School. The deadline for applicants is the same as the deadline for the regular Masters programs.

Students should apply to both of the programs simultaneously prior to enrolling as a student. However, 1st year MBA students at Tepper may also apply during their 1st year of their MBA studies, but must meet the application deadline for the MSHCPM program.   Each applicant is required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test.
