EMBA Health Care Management

Executive education for health care professionals

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. Attracting and retaining health care professionals has been a challenge during the corona pandemic and the situation needs improvement in order to ensure the functionality of service production now and in the future.

We invite you to the EMBA Health Care Management programme to improve your managing skills and to discuss these themes with the experts in the field.  Health care and social reform´s challenges and strengthening management skills in the middle of the change are at the core of the programme. EMBA Health Care Management provides you with ways to

  • deepen your strategic management skills
  • improve your personal management skills
  • strengthen your ability to take the financial aspect into account in development of operations

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