Contemporary Healthcare Management faces enormous challenges and requires leaders that provide effective management and oversight of healthcare organisations. Healthcare managers need sophisticated and refined leadership, strong communication skills and advanced organisational capabilities that are applicable to both private and public health care contexts.
Designed in collaboration with the Centre for Health Services Studies (CHSS), the CMI-accredited MSc Healthcare Management with Industrial Placement course is taught by international experts and enables you to get to grips with corporate strategy and leadership alongside the study of healthcare.
Taking a 12-month industrial placement allows you to gain work experience in the UK or overseas as part of your Master's. While the placements are self-sought, the School offers support through extra-curricular engagement with our dedicated placements team. Opting for this course with a placement takes the length of your course to up to two years.

You'll learn about corporate strategy and performance measurement, finance and accounting, marketing management and leadership. You will also gain a detailed insight into healthcare topics such as global sustainability in healthcare and managing integrated healthcare systems. You will finish your master's with a detailed report with the support of a dedicated expert supervisor. At the end of Stage One, you start your Industrial Placement.
