Healthcare-Management - International Management Master study programme

Post Study work option for IUBH graduates

Healthcare is a key industry in any economy of the world. Due to demographic shifts, technological and medical progress, the dynamic of change is huge - and it is thus one of the most dynamic fields, providing opportunities for well-trained graduates.

One of the key drivers of change are the new expectations of patients, who no longer define themselves as ill but as customers who expect to be treated accordingly. In addition, the factors shown above force governments to rethink financing healthcare.

In this environment of changing needs, questioned ways of financing, rapid innovation and pressure on costs, new managers are needed to manage the change.
