International Health Management

Master of Business Administration

Strong managers and leaders are needed to ensure sustainable and equitable health systems that can respond to current and future health needs. The MBA in International Health Management programme seeks to create a new generation of managers and leaders, building on their various skills sets and personalities in order to equip them for independent meso- and macro-level leadership positions by maintaining a global perspective and interdisciplinary approach to health. The MBA in International Health Management is taught in a blended-learning format (on-campus 1/4, distance based 3/4). More information about the course structure you find here.
