Course Description

The MSc Healthcare Management, online master’s degree, is ideal if you are already, or would like to be, a leader or manager in a health or social care setting. You’ll build on your existing experience and gain the knowledge, skills and emotional tools to help reach your full potential as a manager. You’ll study online giving you the flexibility to achieve your career aspirations around your other commitments.
Management and leadership in the health and social care sector is increasingly important worldwide, with The World Health Organization highlighting the need for managers to have appropriate competencies and the NHS promoting specific values and principles of care.
You’ll learn how companies operate and compete in today’s climate whilst developing the full range of business and management skills needed to help organisations achieve their strategic ambitions. You’ll be able to use these skills to develop approaches to management and leadership, and be well equipped to put in place mechanisms which support the development of organisational learning.
You’ll explore the important social and other factors which influence managing and leading both organisations and individuals, learning with other current and aspiring managers and leaders from a range of health and social care organisations from around the world.
