Field of Study
A dual MHA/MPA degree option is available for students in the Sloan Program in Health Administration (Sloan) and the Cornell Institute of Public Affairs (CIPA). This option enables students to complete both degrees in three years while eliminating duplicative course work. The goal of this dual degree program is to enable students to combine training in public administration with training in the tools of management and their applications to health administration, the organization of the health care sector, health policy, and public health.
