The Master of Business Administration (Healthcare Management) from Deakin University is jointly run and managed by the Deakin Business School and the School of Medicine.  It offers the best of both worlds - the core of Deakin's MBA program and a tailored set of health units designed to prepare you to manage and lead healthcare services in Australia and overseas.

As healthcare service delivery becomes complex because of changing population, disease profile and medical technology; so has the requirement for qualified healthcare managers increased.  There is a pressing need for trained and skilled healthcare executives and leaders in Australia and the Asia-Pacific to lead and manage healthcare service delivery into the future.  

The Deakin MBA (Healthcare Management) course content has been developed in consultation with industry and by academics with several years of industry experience.  With the Deakin MBA (Healthcare Management) qualification in hand you are well positioned to either progress in your existing healthcare management career or embark as a healthcare manager.
