UNC is a national leader in public health business planning. Management Academy for Public Health (MAPH), the flagship national program for public health managers, was developed at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, in partnership with the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. Established in 1999, MAPH faculty worked with hundreds of different local communities and many state public health agencies to help them build business planning skills and develop real-world public health business plans.
NCIPH continues to build off the Management Academy model to offer business planning assistance to local health departments and other public health agencies. Learn more
