The Master program International Health & Social Management prepares its students for the requirements of a future-oriented field of work where an understanding of the links between health care and social organizations – charitable and profit-oriented, public and private, national and international – is essential. The medium-term outlook for graduates of the 2-year Master program is administrative and upper-level management positions in the health care sector, in the social and public sector and related fields.
Due to the changing health care environment, the demand for qualified persons in this sector is constantly rising. Across the European Union, health and social systems and related policies are becoming more interconnected than ever before, with more movement of people, citizens, patients and professionals. This increased interconnectedness raises many policy issues, including quality and access in cross-border services, information requirements for citizens, patients, health professionals and policy-makers, the scope for cooperation in the health and social arena, and how to reconcile national policies with European obligations in general.
The Master program International Health & Social Management is interconnected with the study offer of the European Master in Health Economiecs and Management.
