Master of Public Policy / Master of Business Administration (Dual Degree)
The Master of Public Policy (MPP) / Master of Business Administration (MBA) dual degree program prepares you for challenging public and private-sector careers at all levels of government and in not-for-profit organizations. The program, which is offered jointly with Rutgers University's Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy (EJBSPPP), gives you the skills you need to tackle complex public policy problems. You will develop and refine your analytic and quantitative skills, become grounded in the functions of markets, and gain a thorough understanding of the political institutions and processes through which public policies are formulated and implemented.
Students apply separately to the two programs and must identify their interest in the dual degree program on both applications. Each program accepts 12 credits from the other toward its degree. The student needs a total of 60 credits for the MBA and 45 for the MPP. The student will therefore need to take 48 credits with Rutgers Business School and 33 with Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
Please note that students in this dual degree program who would like to work with the MBA Office of Career Management in order to compete for MBA level internships and full-time positions must do the MCRP in their first year and start the MBA in their second year.
