Course summary

The Executive MSc Health Economics, Policy and Management offers a comprehensive interdisciplinary toolkit to elevate your career in the health sector. The two-year taught modular degree integrates rigorous health economics training with insights into the policy process, the design and analysis of health services research, and discusses current health management problems.

The degree programme brings together leading UK, US, and European academics and policy experts to train change-makers and leaders in the health care sector. You will study alongside established professionals from diverse backgrounds, including: clinicians, health services managers, and specialists from insurance funds, governmental and international agencies, and health care, pharmaceutical and consulting firms from across the globe.

The degree programme is delivered across two years, with four, two-week modules taking place in London. The first year introduces you to theories and concepts of health financing and health economics, in depth case studies of health system and health care management, and the necessary methods to optimise resource allocation and cost-effectiveness in the health care sector.

In your second year, you customise your curriculum by choosing from a range of optional modules, allowing you to pursue areas that will support your professional background and career goals. Finally, you write a dissertation on a health-care focussed topic of your choice, teaching you the skills required to carry out and write a piece of independent research.

Teaching methods and assessment

Each course consists of approximately 20 hours minimum contact time. In addition you will be assigned an academic mentor who will offer support over the course of studies. In your second year you will also be assigned a dissertation supervisor who will guide you through the 5,000 word dissertation project.

Careers

This Executive MSc will prepare you to seek employment in many sectors, including the pharmaceutical and medical devices industries, consultancies, insurers and insurance funds, health care management, government, non-governmental organisations and academia. Upon graduation, many students will also expect to take on more responsibility or a different focus with their current employer.
