Health care institiutions around the world are facing challenging issues caused by progressively changing trends, such as an increasingly prevailing physical inactivity and ageing. As the issues become global, so turns the strategic vision of their resilution. Good management is crucial to approaching these challegenges, and ASPIRE’s MHCM equips you to succesfully confront them, while providing economic, political, and technical approaches on a fast-changing and complex health care environment.
During the MHCM, participants are trained to match knowledge from various academic fields with professional skills and figure out a solution for just about any problem that they might found during their career as health care managers. During this process, the spotlight is never put on anything but patient demands and needs. All in all, the program prepares key leaders through a solid foundation in business analysis and a proven exposure to real - world healthcare management and rewarding professional development opportunities.
Why study MHCM at Aspire Business School?
The ASPIRE Master in Health Care Management and its recognized business faculty, together with a select group of highly experienced healthcare industry executives, prepares graduates to assume increasingly bigger management and leadership roles in a wide range of healthcare settings, insurers and managed care companies, including health and hospital systems, consulting firms, pharmaceutical companies, public health organizations, service provider organizations, medical device and biotech firms. The specific focus is set on the understanding of the European and Catalan National Health Care Programs, a real benchmark worldwide.
The Aspire’s MHCM focuses on a set complimentary goals.
The methodology used in the programs of ASPIRE is based on the combination of practical training and theoretical knowledge, and further requires the active participation of students with their opinions and views. Based on this, all participants are encouraged to analyze and solve case studies based on real and simulated business situations for training purposes. The Student participation and teamwork are an essential element in the development of the program. This deepens and enriches the training, as it complements the diversity of opinions and experiences of the participants. In this sense, good teamwork is essential in the development, preparation and presentation of the Business Plan as the FMT project in which all the skills and knowledge acquired during the development of the program are integrated. The project encourages the ability to develop strategic vision and entrepreneurial spirit of the Student.
