International Health Management and Leadership MSc

This is an online course for those who want to advance either within the sector where they are currently working or to step up the ladder into another sector in health.

The course focuses on the management challenges and practices that are unique to healthcare settings, making it ideal for those already working in healthcare management or those considering a career change into the sector.

You'll develop your understanding of quantitative and qualitative research methods used in health-related research, organisational theory, management and practices within health systems. You'll also explore healthcare management challenges, accounting and finance, operating environments, and how to be an effective leader of people.

In particular, the programme is suitable for health practitioners taking up management roles in hospital or health departments; managers of fast-growing health insurance and health maintenance organisations in low and middle-income countries; mid-level public health officers seeking career progression or moving into leadership roles in government, NGO and multilateral organisations such as UNICEF, WHO and USAID, especially in low and middle-income countries; and others from different disciplinary backgrounds switching career into health management and leadership.
