Looking to play an active role in an industry that saves lives? Want to build your career in an area where you can help others? Then this MBA programme with a specialisation in Healthcare Management is the right choice for you.
The healthcare sector has been at the centre of news reports over the last two years, and it is clear that the industry is going through rapid changes in an attempt to meet new challenges. What’s clearer than ever, though, is that healthcare is an industry that’s vital and exhilarating – and that young new managers, with a better understanding of the digital age, are required at almost every corner.
Take on challenging managerial responsibilities in an exciting industry, and work in hospitals, care facilities or industry-leading medical technology companies.
In the first part of your studies, you’ll focus on developing the skills that will make you an excellent manager, regardless of industry. You’ll then move on to industry specific, specialist knowledge, which when combined with the business fundamentals understanding you’ve acquired, will help you apply strategic and operational thinking in ways that fit the healthcare industry.
Explore different healthcare system delivery models, international healthcare policies and laws and the unique economic conditions of the healthcare industry. Learn to know the various healthcare market drivers, how policy is designed and which interest groups need to be taken into considerations: politicians, the general companies and medical and pharmaceutical corporations.
By understanding the full scope of how healthcare policies are designed, you’ll improve your chances of successfully navigating them in your future career as a healthcare manager.
After completing your studies for an MBA with a specialisation in Healthcare Management, you’ll be uniquely qualified to tackle different responsibilities in the healthcare sector, based on your preferences. Because it’s such a large industry, and continually evolving, the demand for skilled professionals is always high.
Depending on your personal or professional circumstances, you may wish to complete your studies as quickly as possible, or you may prefer a more flexible study programme that is less time-consuming. That’s why we offer part-time options for all our study programmes. This allows you to study alongside professional or personal commitments. We adjust your study fees based on your chosen time model.
Are you unable to finish your programme within the given time? No problem! If you realise that you need more time, you can simply switch to another time model with one months’ notice before the end of the month.
No registration or administration fees are charged when you apply for studying – you'll only be charged once your studies have started. If you won't be admitted to a programme because you do not meet the admission requirements, no fees will be charged.
