Program description

MSc in International Management - Management of Health Systems specialization - Online / Distance Learning

The fully online MSc in International Management with a specialisation track in Management of Health Systems will equip you with the skill-set for myriad managerial positions in organisations that participate in the many facets of the healthcare delivery system. Essential tools will be provided enabling you to deconstruct the complex and integrated components that combine to create a healthcare system. The programme will also introduce the economic theories of supply and demand as they apply to the healthcare system while you discover how health services are organised, delivered, and evaluated. The behavioural aspects of consumers and providers are assessed, benefiting health professionals seeking leadership roles, and you’ll also learn how to apply metrics to determine system efficiencies and profitability. 

You will analyse and critique management theory and practice, and investigate and address a wide range of managerial issues and problems. You will develop sound judgement in the face of ambiguous data and demonstrate advanced skills in financial and economic management.

In studying the complexity of international organisations and the interdependence of their strategy, policy, functions, processes, systems and people, you will also learn how to apply your new knowledge to increase your managerial competence and personal effectiveness. You will learn how to operate successfully in international and multicultural markets.

You should graduate with a range of key transferable skills that will enhance your access to a wide range of internationally focused managerial positions in financial and management services companies, blue chip manufacturing and service companies, major retailers, and the global healthcare industry.
