Study health and social care at an advanced level, learn alongside students from around the world and enhance your career development
This innovative course is designed for graduates who have, or aspire to, a management role in health and social care.
The programme will prepare you to work effectively within the complex and rapidly evolving environments of health and social care, and provide the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and skills within a broad international context.
The MSc Healthcare Management programme is distinctive in that it offers modules from the Business School and the School of Health and Social Care.
A particular feature is the opportunity to learn on campus with students from Scotland, across Europe and around the world.
On completion of the programme students already working in healthcare have attained promotion or commenced further study at PhD level.
Others have taken the programme as a stepping stone to healthcare management positions in their home country.
