BU: New Online Executive MPH Program Offers Flexible Format for Health Professionals

Public health professionals and clinicians seeking to propel their career to a leadership level now have the opportunity to do so in a convenient, fully online format at Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH).

The Online Executive Master of Public Health program offers the same comprehensive, skills-based curriculum, renowned faculty, and innovative approach that distinguished BUSPH’s in-person Executive MPH program from other schools—and also provides the significant benefits of a virtual format: a more flexible working environment, no commute to class, and extra time to devote to professional and personal commitments. GRE scores are no longer considered for admission to any of the degree programs at BUSPH.

Geared toward mid-career professionals working in a range of industries such as healthcare, finance, government, and medicine, the new Online Executive MPH consists of 10 7-week courses that supply students with a solid public health foundation, as well as the more refined skills critical for senior leaders in the field. Foundational courses provide leaders with a strong base on which to build important skills including communication and collaboration strategies, financial management, statistical analysis, and more.

“Online education is becoming an increasingly attractive option for higher education,” says Dr. Lisa Sullivan, associate dean for education at BUSPH.
