An MBA in Healthcare Management is aimed at those professionals looking to enhance their knowledge of business management with regards to the healthcare industry. Like a traditional MBA the course is run over an 18 month period on a full time basis, or a 3 year period on a part time basis. Classes are usually held in the evenings and over the weekends to allow students to pursue a career alongside earning the degree.
The modules focus on general MBA subjects, but centre the approach with relevance to healthcare concepts. Some modules include finance, management, health policy, marketing, leadership and medical technology.
