The Goizueta Business School and Rollins cooperate in a program granting the MBA and the MPH degrees. Students can complete this program in five semesters, which does not include summer enrollment. Students are encouraged to participate in summer internships to complement their course work. Two of the five semesters are full-time at Rollins.
Candidates for this program must apply to both the Goizueta Business School and Rollins separately. Evaluation criteria for admission to Rollins for students in the dual-degree program are the same as those for the MPH program alone. The scores from the GMAT may be substituted for the GRE requirement.
Students accepted into the dual-degree program will be notified of acceptance by both schools. If students are accepted into one school but not the other, they may enroll in the school that has accepted them, but not as a dual-degree student. Upon admission to the dual-degree program, students consult with the appropriate program director of each school to plan their courses of study. Candidates begin the program in the fall with two semesters in the business school. The following fall and spring, candidates enroll in the Rollins School of Public Health. During the final fall semester, the candidate takes electives in both schools but enrolls in the business school.
A mininum of 30 hours of course work while in residence at Rollins is required. Fifty-one credit hours are taken in the business school.
