Health Care Management

Multi-professional executive education for health care professionals 2017–2018

Our health care is struggling with the sustainability gap. The aging population requires more care but there is not enough personnel or financial resources. We need strategic management, executive expertise as well as more efficiency and productivity. We must achieve more with fewer resources. We must develop new funding and production models and increase cooperation between the public and private sector. How does the social welfare and health care reform influence these challenges?

We invite you to the EMBA Heath Care Management programme to improve yourself and to discuss these themes with the experts in the field. The programme provides you with ways to

  • manage finances
  • deepen your strategic management
  • develop the operations of your organisation
  • improve your personal management skills.

For whom?
For directors, chief physicians, specialists, doctors, nursing directors, head nurses, finance directors, heads of finance and experts in primary health care and specialised medical care as well as directors and professionals of heath care working in the private sector.

Modes of study
The studies consist of four contact teaching seminars and the related assignments. The programme utilises a virtual learning environment, which makes active interaction between seminars possible.
