The Double Masters Programme in Health Economics provides highly qualified students with the opportunity to profit from the first class expertise of two universities. Participants study at each university for one year and graduate with two Master's degrees from these renowned institutions: The Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences, University of Cologne, and the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, Maastricht University.
Health Economics is an interdisciplinary science in-between economics and medicine. The Double Masters Programme in Health Economics has a strong focus on innovation in the healthcare sector and on current and future healthcare challenges.
The Double Masters Programme prepares students for responsible management positions in the public and private health care sector. Students develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the management of the health care sector and gain in-depth knowledge of health economics and innovation in healthcare, together with strong intercultural competencies. Upon completion of this programme, graduates will be able to apply economic concepts to medical questions and actively address challenges of today's complex and rapidly changing healthcare sector.
Holding a German and a Dutch Master's degree, the graduates will have excellent perspectives on the European and the international labour market.
Please note that the Double Master is a consecutive programme, i.e. you need for application a Bachelor (or equivalent) with strong proficiency in Business Administration, Management Studies or Health Economics (60 ECTS). Furthermore, a minimum of 15 ECTS in the field of medicine and further 18 ECTS in the methods of the Health Economics are required. Unfortunately, University of Cologne's admission rules do not leave room for substituting work experience for credits. Please take a look at your transcript and verify that you meet the above mentioned criteria. Moreover, please bear in mind that the TOEFL/IELTS/etc. are indispensable requirements for an application and have to be submitted until the application deadline. More information on the accepted language certificates can be found here: http://www.wiso.uni-koeln.de/en/studies/degree-course-offer/master/application/admission-tests/
