Our MSc International Health Management is a unique one year programme which provides the essential skills to springboard you into a management career in the global healthcare sector.
The programme combines business-focused teaching and cutting-edge research and gives you the chance to learn from internationally recognised faculty at the forefront of health management research. The programme is specifically designed to give you an overview of the UK health system and its application in a global context.
During the programme you will study a selection of taught modules, providing you with a solid knowledge base in each subject area. Initially the focus is on the principles of management, moving increasingly towards a focus on healthcare. Core modules include: • Accounting • Contemporary Topics in Healthcare • Health Economics • Health Informatics • Health Systems, Policy and Financing • Management Challenges of Healthcare Organisations • Managing Change and Innovation in Healthcare • Marketing • Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management • Strategic Management
In the final part of the programme you will consolidate and apply your understanding of the material so far, choosing specific aspects to pursue in greater depth. You will study Entrepreneurship and use this as a basis for the Business Plan Competition, where you will develop a new healthcare business opportunity into a fully‑fledged proposal to pitch to investors.
The Healthcare Sector Project is an exciting module where you will manage a complex and challenging consulting project in the healthcare sector, enhancing your managerial potential by applying knowledge and skills gained across the whole programme.
The final piece of assessment, the Healthcare Report, comprises a 5,000 word report on a relevant healthcare topic of your choice.
