Why you should study International Healthcare Management
Your Bachelor's degree is only the beginning if you want to make a career as a manager later on. For many companies, a solid foundation of specialised knowledge is only sufficient for certain professions. A highly qualified and internationally recognised Master's degree is particularly worthwhile for you if you want to take on responsible tasks at a higher management level later on or even sit in the executive chair. However, the additional effort required for a Master's degree is not only worthwhile in terms of your career prospects. You can also specialise, deepen your knowledge and gain valuable experience and contacts abroad. Your future employers will reward all of this with praise in the application process, managerial positions and a starting salary that is up to 20 percent higher.
This is what your Master’s degree in International Healthcare Management at IU looks like
The Master's programme in International Healthcare Management at IU International University of Applied Sciences familiarises future healthcare managers with the general conditions of the healthcare market. In addition to the usual management topics, you will also learn about topics such as international health policy (Health Policy and Planning, International Health Systems) and direct aspects of health from a global perspective (Global Health). In addition to a wide range of elective subjects, you can also choose from two specialisations. While the first subject block is directly related to the health sector (e.g. Digitalisation in Healthcare, Public Health or Innovation in Pharma and Medical Technology), the second relates to relevant business topics (e.g. Advanced Management Accounting & Control, Data Science and Analytics or Online Marketing and Digital Analytics).
A look into the future: What you will be able to do after graduating
The demand for qualified workers in healthcare management is growing rapidly worldwide. With your Master's degree in International Healthcare Management, you will be more than just interesting for international companies in the healthcare industry - especially in the fields of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology or medical technology. Even online programmes from the UK or USA are not as internationally oriented in the healthcare sector as your Master's programme. This means you can have a direct career as a manager later on. Be it as a Product Manager:in, International Regulatory Manager:in or Healthcare Management Consultant.
The most important questions about studying International Healthcare Management
No matter where you are or when you have time, your Master's degree in International Healthcare Management is entirely up to you. At IU International University you study 100% online on a virtual campus - during the day or in the evening, live or on demand. Fixed dates for lectures or exams? There are no such things in distance learning. But there's all the more freedom to organise your time and maximum flexibility.
Sometimes things turn out differently. And then differently than you think. That's why you can not only easily adapt your IU studies to your personal wishes and current life circumstances. You can also choose from different time models and even extend your studies if necessary. In concrete terms, depending on how long you would like to study and what type of learner you are, it will take 12, 18 or 24 months until you have your Master's degree in the bag.
