Or maybe I should do an entirely different degree lol? Dream exit opportunity is to manage social impact projects etc., either with a not for profit foundation or have my own social enterprise

MPP maybe

like

Yale/HBS/GSB if you plan on taking a job internationally (parent university has more weight); Haas/Yale/HBS/GSB if you’re planning on being in the US. Other schools to consider: Kellogg also has a pretty decent program in social impact and healthcare (if you’re interested in that sector), Fuqua has strong ties to BMGF (but I’m not as familiar with the program), Sloan also has a pretty strong reputation in social impact and social entrepreneurship (I’m not as familiar with the program either though)

I know Yale offers a dual degree for MBA/MPA (or MPP I think, something with international affairs) that might be worth looking into

like

Target haas if that’s your goal and you want to be on west coast (and toss in Stanford too). Target game if you want to be on east coast (and toss in harvard). Prestige difference isn’t gonna get you any marginal return elsewhere.

I would say MPH as well! And also aim higher than Yale :)

A1- why did your girlfriend pursue it and why did she not think it useful? I know other people who have done MPP / MPHs and l loved it
