THE PROGRAM


Simultaneously earn a Master of Arts in Public Policy from the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and a Master of Science in Health Economics and Policy from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Tailored to serve ambitious, mid-career health professionals around the world, the Double Executive Master’s in Health Policy complements the body of knowledge of practitioners working in the health care and health-related industries with a strong foundation in global health policy and economics.

Designed for working executives, the double master’s program will be taught evenly between Chicago and London in compressed, executive-style teaching modules. The two-year program consists of four two-to-three-week modules completed in person and two summer practicums completed remotely. 

In each year of the two-year program, participants spend two to three weeks in London in the fall and two to three weeks in Chicago in the spring, working through an intensive curriculum that covers foundations in global health policy and health care economics, including health care finance, measuring health system performance, pharmaceutical economics, health policy analysis, and negotiation and advocacy in health policy, among other topics. 

The first year of the program culminates in a capstone project completed during summer 2019, and the second year concludes with a written dissertation in spring 2020.

Upon successful completion of the program, participants are awarded two degrees: a Master of Arts in Public Policy from the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and a Master of Science in Health Economics and Policy from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
