Northumbria’s Healthcare Management MSc will equip you with the knowledge, understanding and confidence you need to initiate and sustain real change within the complex and rapidly evolving healthcare landscape.
The course is designed to address global needs within the healthcare sector for committed personnel with strong management competencies. You will learn as part of a multicultural student cohort, from academics who have extensive experience in practice. This will give you access to new perspectives on healthcare, which will inform your future professional practice.
You will study modules in Strategic Management of Healthcare, Leadership & Collaborative Working in Public Health, Managing Health Improvement Through Social Marketing, and Research Approaches, Methods and Skills. You will supplement your understanding of these core topics with an in-depth research project in an area of professional interest.
Learning and teaching strategies include lectures, seminars, workshops, group activities, tutorials, discussions and self-directed learning. You will be active in the learning process and develop as a critically reflective individual.
Formative assessment will be used throughout the course to provide opportunities for feedback and development, within a supportive peer environment. Summative assessments include a report, an essay, an exam, an oral presentation and a poster presentation, in which you will be able to focus on an area of personal interest.
You will also complete a final dissertation on a topic of your choice, under the close guidance of your allocated supervisor.
This MSc will equip you for employment in healthcare management across public or government services, voluntary organisations, non-governmental organisations and private organisations globally.
Further study options are available should you wish to progress your studies to PhD level, and graduates may also wish to pursue careers within teaching or research.
To further enhance your future opportunities we offer ongoing career development support in the form of career guidance, CV advice, portfolio building and interview preparation.
