The major aim of the Master of Science in Health Economics (MScHE) program is to provide first-class training in theoretical foundations and practical applications of health economic methods needed for decision-making, policy-making and development and research in health and health care, within the context of the ethical principles of society. More specifically, the foundation for specialization in health economics is provided through coursework in the core areas of health economics, specifically microeconomics, econometrics, and economic evaluation of health and health care programs.
In order to ensure the students have the experience and skills necessary to successfully participate in public health and health services decision-making there is an in-depth training in health systems and in economic principles that guide the organizations and functions in the health care system. Moreover, students are provided with current tools to participate in the frontier of health economic research and practice.
The MscHE program is a modular programme, allowing for full-time (1 year) and part-time (2 years) study. Before commencing the programme applicants should decide which mode of study they want to follow. Both modes of study have the same course components, credit requirements and lead to the same final degree.
The course is structured into four (4) compact teaching modules, followed by a period of individual research work.
The first module - Introduction in Economics, Methods & Theory - consists of two (2) introductory self-study courses with an expected learning time of two (2) weeks of full-time study. One of them discusses the ethical foundations necessary for normative economics and provides an introduction to health policy, while the second supplies a review of the basic mathematical methods applied in economics. The inclusion of self-study courses at the beginning of the program clearly communicates to students that in this programme they need to be highly motivated and self-directed if they are to be successful.
The second module comprises several taught courses lasting six (6) weeks. They are designed to help the students to achieve a sound overview of health economic theory and methods. There is one (1) additional week for the exams.
The third module - Health Care systems & statistics - builds on the foundations established in the second module and introduces students during six (6) weeks. It is again followed by one (1) week for the completion of exams.
The fourth and final module - Applied Economic Research - focuses during ten (10) weeks on the advanced strategies and skill-building necessary for health-economic research and practice. This module is also completed by one (1) week of exams following the courses.
Thesis (25 ECTS)
After successfully completing the taught part of the program, students move on to the research work for their final thesis. This project is designed to enhance students’ ability to independently discern a research issue that is both relevant and substantial, choose the methodology for dealing with it, and gauge the impact of the findings at a practical and policy-related level. To make this a fruitful learning experience, students are systematically guided throughout the work on their thesis by an academic tutor.
The MscHE’s international connectivity links it with leading institutions in research, education and industry, a fact that contributes greatly to the development of a diverse, globally engaged health-economics research community and workforce. Practical experience outside their programme of study can be arranged for students with the help of our industrial partners, governmental and research agencies, and academic research collaborators in Germany, Europe and abroad.
Admission to the Master’s course is restricted. Please consult the Admissions Regulations for detailed information.
The programme is open to medical doctors and other professionals with an initial health-related academic degree (above average) equivalent to 240 ECTS (usually a Bachelor degree after at least 4 years of full-time study) plus work experience of minimum one year in a health-related sector.
