Earn an Ivy College of Business MBA and master of healthcare analytics and operations (MHAO) at the same time through our Ivy double degree program.

Whether you’re angling for a promotion or preparing to climb the corporate ladder, an Ivy MBA is a proven path to success. An Ivy MBA will enhance your leadership and management skills, engage your problem-solving abilities, and open doors. Our full-time program is ranked #51 by U.S. News & World Report and offers an array of specializations taught by internationally known faculty. The master of healthcare analytics and operations is designed to provide healthcare analysts, executives, insurance companies, providers, and policymakers training on how to create more efficient operations. Analyzing operations, supply chains, and data to develop plans of action is a necessary skill in today’s healthcare industry. You will gain the skills and tools needed to make the right decisions to improve healthcare delivery systems, lower costs, and enhance patient care — ultimately helping to save lives. The MBA/MHAO double degree is a faster pathway to earn both degrees together, saving you time and money.
