Weber State University students may complete both the Master of Health Administration and Master of Business Administration degrees at the same time, completing both in much less time than it would take to pursue them individually.
Students must choose either the MHA or the MBA as their primary degree, which determines the number of courses taken in each program. With the MHA as the primary degree, students take an additional 24 credit hours (8 courses) to complete the MBA: with the MBA as their primary degree, students may complete the MHA with 24 additional credit hours.Students may simultaneously pursue coursework in both programs. A summary of the course requirements for both dual-degree options can be found here.
Students who successfully complete the course requirements in both programs will receive two separate degrees (MBA & MHA), and may file for graduation from one program before completing the course requirements in the other.
Students can now apply to both programs through a single online application. Please note the following when applying to the MBA-MHA dual-degree program:
- Although there is one joint application form, applicants are admitted separately to each program at different times: applicants may be admitted to the MBA program 2x's per year (May 1 and November 1 deadlines), while the MHA Program admits applicants once per year (May 1 deadline). Dual-degree applicants admitted to the MBA program in November will be not be considered for admission to the MHA Program until the following May.
- The online application will prompt applicants to choose either the MBA or the MHA as their primary degree. If admitted, students will then be matriculated with the major degree code of their primary degree choice, and the other degree will be listed as the secondary degree.
- All paper application materials (transcripts, GMAT, GRE scores), questions and communications should be directed to the office of the applicant's preferred primary degree program (MBA or MHA - the addresses for each are listed below).
- There is a single non-refundable application fee of $90 for the dual-degree application.
