Classes consist of lectures and discussions in which professors expose sound theoretical principles, tools and methodologies, but also practical examples. The extensive use of case studies by Faculty allows students to be introduced to a wide range of practical management issues in healthcare organizations. Additional to exams, other elements will be part of the final grading such as class participation, individual assignments and group work. Moreover, to emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of the programme, each course is shared between a resident faculty member and a visiting professor from abroad.
The programme offers knowledge, skills and competencies particularly valuable to pursuing careers in organizations such as:
- Healthcare delivery organizations (e.g. hospitals, local health authorities, residential care)
