The UNC Management Academy for Public Health: how the UNC School of Public Health and the Kenan-Flagler Business School created a winning partnership



The UNC Management Academy for Public Health: how the UNC School of Public Health and the Kenan-Flagler Business School created a winning partnership



Journal of Public Health Management and Practice 12(5): 430-435



The University of North Carolina Management Academy for Public Health is a unique training program that combines a business education with a public health focus, to enhance the performance of individual public health managers and improve organizational strength throughout governmental public health. This article considers the implications of decisions made in creating this program, which, after initial funding through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Foundation, is now self-sustaining through participant fees. It details the principles behind the program's design, curriculum, evaluation, and sustainability strategies; presents results of the ongoing partnership; and draws conclusions about the program's future ability to meet a national need for public health management training.
