Please tell us about your dual-degree experience.
Being a dual-degree MBA-MPH candidate has allowed me to see business innovations and public health initiatives from unique angles. If I’m at a management class and we talk about a positioning strategy to sell trial size toothpaste, I start to wonder about the potential effect this would have on dental hygiene in the population of a developing nation. Correspondingly, when we have a discussion in my public health class on a global health initiative to distribute anti-retroviral drugs for HIV throughout a nation, I begin to contemplate the operational challenges and potential bottlenecks that may arise in such an endeavor. The exciting challenge about going after both the MBA and MPH is trying to piece together the lessons learned from both programs to come up with comprehensive and effective solutions that help populations in both the U.S. and the developing world.

    This is great! I’m glad that Cabul is featured here as well at his university. I think all of us who know him will agree that he will do a lot of great things for this world. He works tirelessly, is consistently positive, and is a great thinker. Good luck to him and I’m glad to see his face on our website.
