YOUR INTERNATIONAL HEALTHCARE MANAGEMENT STUDIES - VERY HEALTHY!
Health has played a major role in our economic system for a long time. It is important not to take a one-dimensional look at the healthcare sector, but to acquire a 360° view and a comprehensive understanding of the workings of one of the most important global markets. Your Master's degree in International Healthcare Management will prepare you for this. The programme provides you with the know-how to understand theoretical and scientific principles and to learn practically relevant methods and leadership skills to make a career in a highly innovative and globalised sector.
If you want to deepen your knowledge from your first degree in economics, International Healthcare Management as a consecutive Master's programme is exactly the right fit for you. The aim is to familiarise future healthcare managers thoroughly with the framework conditions of the sector. Accordingly, the programme also goes beyond the usual management topics and tries to familiarise students with topics of international health policy (Health Policy and Planning, International Health Systems) as well as direct aspects of health from a global perspective (Global Health). You will choose your two specialisations from a wide range of elective subjects. The first block consists of topics directly related to the health sector (e.g. Digitalisation in Healthcare, Public Health or Innovation in Pharma and Medical Technology), the second block refers to specialisations in relevant business topics (e.g. Advanced Management Accounting & Control, Data Science and Analytics or Online Marketing and Digital Analytics). Your advantage: Even online programmes from the UK or the USA are not as internationally oriented in the health sector as this Master's degree.
Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
