Description

The MBA in Health and Social Care provides students with knowledge and understanding of strategic management, as well as practical insight of contemporary issues in Health and Social Care Organisations.

The complexity of modern healthcare and social care, arising from constant innovation, has been escribed as being “an order of magnitude” greater than other industries. Currently, health and social care service users increasingly demand a personalised, higher quality health care experience, whilst the threat of public sector austerity increases the pressure on providers, including the healthcare and social care supply chain, to deliver it. This postgraduate degree addresses the specific demands placed on professionals who are responsible for leading policy, strategy and services in their organisation; be it in the public, private or voluntary aided sector.

You will study the key management disciplines within a healthcare context; including business planning and finance, project and operations management, healthcare service improvement and leadership.

Whether you are a supervisor, manager, policy maker or a clinician wishing to know more about healthcare management this course will make a significant impact on your current and future career.
