One of the healthcare industry’s challenges is today the recruitment of leadership that can guide organisations to better serve their communities. Worldwide the demand considerably exceeds the supply of appropriate qualified healthcare executives.

All participants benefit later also from the opportunities of the strong Nations HealthCareer Alumni competence network, composed of fellow students and graduates from more than 25 countries.

The modular-structured part-time MBA programme for professionals in full-time employment in the health, medical, pharmaceutical or hospital industry from Asia, Europe and the Middle East offers an intensive general management study tailored specifically to entrepreneurial hospital and health industry management. It aims primarily to enhance the participant ‘s ability to identify business opportunities, make firm, clear cut decisions, plan and control business functions, as well as motivate and develop people and health organisations. The programme pays particular attention to its participants’ personal development, leadership talents, professional skills and entrepreneurial spirit.

The MBA programme is structured into eight attendance modules in Europe, Asia and the Middle East supplemented by e-learning sessions. The eight attendance modules of 8 1/2 days each, take place at different international study locations such as Germany, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, China, Singapore, Austria in order to offer the cross-cultural study group insights into a variety of health management practices and encourage a truly international exchange of experience by case studies and expert meetings.
