About the programme
This course is a joint collaboration between the European Heart Academy of ESC and London School of Economics (LSE).
The Executive MSc Health Economics, Outcomes and Management in Cardiovascular Sciences prepares students to explore new advisory, management and leadership roles within the healthcare field. In addition to gaining a theoretical and conceptual understanding of health economics, outcomes research, management and relevant social science principles of the cardiovascular disease fields, students will acquire new skills to accelerate or refocus their careers.
The programme consists of eight modules and one MSc dissertation over two academic years. On-site modules are taught two weeks in December and two weeks in June, each year, at the London School of Economics (LSE) in London. In addition to time spent in the classroom, students will also be expected to complete coursework from a distance. Modules will be taught in London.
