Course detail

The MBA in Leadership and Management in Healthcare engages participants through experiential and practical learning, reinforced by theoretical models and real scenarios. We work with participants to transfer learning back into the workplace through personal development plans, project work and enable the application of meaningful action plans to follow up the course.

In short, we design these courses to meet the real and important needs of current Health organisations with the aim of almost immediate payback on their investment in their people.

The MBA is delivered through a partnership between the Business School and the Faculty of Health. Staff from the Business School combine excellence in their academic disciplines with considerable business experience and active research in both the public and private sectors. The Faculty of Health is a leading provider of health education in Kent with a particular focus on interprofessional teaching, learning and research. It offers a forward thinking, innovative and flexible approach to teaching, learning and research. Each year, over 3,000 students join our thriving and supportive community to participate in courses and research that impact on regional, national and international health and social care services.


The programme is aimed at Healthcare professionals, these can be clinicians, specialist or managers who are looking to enhance their qualifications and knowledge base. This often includes those who have been given, or are going to be given, responsibility for other staff and often for budgets too. This MBA is specially aimed at those with leadership and managerial roles within the health service. Previous students have included among others senior nurses, specialist nurses, commissioners, doctors, pharmacists, ward managers, radiographers and matrons.


The programme is comprised of six main modules, these being:
