Course for potential healthcare managers launched in London

  • Comment
Brunel University in London has launched a new master’s degree in healthcare management for healthcare professionals.

The MBA course, which is tailored to suit professionals already working within public and private health organisations, is intended to provide students with an understanding of business principles and how to apply these within the healthcare sector.

The first students will enrol on the course this month. It aims to provide individuals with an opportunity to progress in the healthcare sector by focusing on the development of their business and management skills.

Amir Sharif, director of MBA Programmes at Brunel’s Business School, said: ‘The MBA in Healthcare Management aims to give students a unique combination of knowledge and general management practice. Our MBA programmes equip students with invaluable skills to take on high level management positions.’

Alongside the university’s expertise in offering MBAs, students will benefit from a course which addresses issues which are unique to the healthcare sector, he said.

Professor Zahir Irani, head of the business school at Brunel University, added: ‘With increasing pressures on healthcare budgets and resources, it is essential that managers are provided with the right educational opportunities to enhance their skills and become more effective managers in this dynamic and competitive sector.’

The course is offered in full-time and part-time formats and is accredited by the Association of MBAs. The one-year full-time course has an intake in September, while part-time students can enrol in September or February.

Candidates are expected to have both a good degree and a minimum of three years managerial or professional work experience relevant to the healthcare sector.
