MSc International Health Management

 Imperial College Business School’s MSc International Health Management is a one-year programme that uniquely combines business-focused teaching and cutting-edge research to provide the essential management skills to springboard graduates into a management career in the global healthcare sector.

With strong links to the medical faculty at Imperial College London, the programme gives students the opportunity to learn from internationally recognised faculty at the forefront of health management research. Students gain an overview of the UK health system and its application in a global context.

During the programme students study eleven taught courses, gaining a solid knowledge base in each subject area. Initially the focus is on the principles of management, moving increasingly towards a focus on healthcare. Courses include Health Informatics, Strategic Management, Health Economics, Management Challenges of Healthcare Organisations and Managing Change and Innovation in Healthcare. Students also apply their learning, through a Business Plan Competition, Healthcare Report and Healthcare Sector Project. During the Healthcare Sector Project, students manage a complex and challenging consulting project in the healthcare sector, by applying knowledge and skills gained across the whole programme.

This programme is undertaken by a mix of recent graduates and experienced healthcare professionals. Graduates typically progress onto management careers in the healthcare sector, as well as roles in consulting, the pharmaceutical industry and NGOs.
