The Health Economics programme of Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi aims to provide students with a specialised, multidisciplinary qualification for successful careers in global institutions operating in both the public and private health sectors. 


About the Programme

Students are taught how to use applied quantitative methods to analyse health care data and to provide a sound understanding of health economics issues that surface in today’s globalised economy.

The objective of the Health Economics programme of Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi is to educate the next generation of healthcare professionals to manage, explore, understand and analyse data within healthcare systems, with the ultimate goal of facilitating effective decision-making. Two core areas of focus have been identified for this degree; firstly, a need for training in cost-effective analysis to evaluate the economic efficiency of prescription drugs and related policies, and secondly, training in econometrics to explore care consumptions and care pathways in health data.

The first year teaches students about the fundamentals of data management and econometrics to effectively understand health care expenditure trends. The programme includes introductory courses such as fiscal management, accounting and financial tools, introduction to research and the economics of social insurance, amongst others.

During the second year, the courses take on a more specialised approach. Students are taught the health technology assessment (HTA) process used to examine the economic efficiency of new health technologies. The Markov models are introduced, teaching students how to achieve and interpret cost-effective analyses. Econometrics models are explored in depth and individual and interactive decisions are examined in ‘Game Theory’, ‘Law and Economics’, and ‘Decisions under Health Risks’. An increased focus on data analysis, statistics and health economics is central to the second year programme.

There are abundant rewarding career opportunities on a regional and global scale for graduates of the Master in Health Economics degree. For emerging and experienced professionals, career prospects vary from senior positions in government agencies, consulting groups, and health care industries. The scope of experiential learning opportunities at Sorbonne Abu Dhabi will definitely give you a competitive edge in your career.
