International Public Health Management, MSc

The Master’s degree programme in International Public Health Management is based on the idea of providing an interdisciplinary, international and research-oriented management education for planning, development and controlling tasks in the public health sector. The degree programme aims to impart qualifications which, in the sense of entrepreneurial thinking and acting, prepare students for the future requirements of a top management position in the public health sector with leadership and management responsibility.

The programme applies basic business administration and management skills (HR, Finance) to the specifics of the public health sector and combines them with core skills (health prevention, epidemiology) and complementary skills (research methodologies, CSR). The MSc in International Public Health Management focuses on the provision of a multidisciplinary, critically analytical and practice-based approach to the main challenges and issues in international public health management, planning and policy, which face the providers of health and health-related services.
