Overview

The impetus for the MSc Global Healthcare Management programme stems from recognition, nationally and internationally, of the need to build leadership and management capabilities for those wishing to pursue careers within health care, social care and third sector organisations.

Its rationale stems from the recognition, nationally and globally of the unique challenges and complexities that face the next generation of managers and leaders of health and social care systems across the world and the need to build leadership capability.

The MSc Global Healthcare Management programme has been carefully designed, drawing on the expertise of health, social care and leadership and management from within the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health to enhance students’ personal/professional attributes, abilities to think creatively and apply entrepreneurial skills, in leading the delivery of quality health and social care services and responding to the global health challenges now and in the future. Interdisiciplinary learning is a feature of the programme with students studying alongside their peers on other MSc programmes delivered within the faculty.

The MSc Global Healthcare Management with Professional Experience, is an extended full-time Masters programme with a substantive professional experience component. Within the professional experience modules, students have the option of undertaking an internship with an external organisation or, campus-based professional experience.  Internships are subject to a competitive application and selection process. The host organisation may include the University.

Internships may be paid or unpaid, and this will depend on what is being offered and agreed with the host organisation. Students who do not wish to undertake an internship or are not successful in securing an internship will undertake campus-based professional experience, which will deliver similar learning outcomes through supervised projects and activities designed to offer students the opportunity to integrate theory with an understanding of professional practice.

In addition, those students on the MSc Global Healthcare Management will undertake two non credit bearing modules, providing a substantive period of professional experience, either as an internship with a host organisation, which can include the university, or a campus-based professional experience.

Understanding gained from these modules will be demonstrated and applied in either the university-based Management Project (General) for those students on the full-time (12 month) and part-time (24 month) programmes or the Postgraduate Professional Experience Project for those students on the full-time (20 month programme).

You will experience learning with students from other Masters programmes within the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health, in addition to those specialising in Global Healthcare Management at different stages of your course.

You will be supported by a personal tutor throughout your studies and receive individual supervision whilst undertaking either the Management Project (General) or Postgraduate Internship Research Project.

You will also be required to undertake reading and self-directed independent study to support your learning.

Career prospects

Earning an MSc in Global Healthcare Management is an excellent way to build leadership and management capabilities for those wishing to pursue careers within health care, social care and third sector organisations.

The learning and development demanded by this qualification seeks to prepare its graduates for the prospects of senior level employment; be it related to a discrete service department or hospital unit, private or publically funded hospital or service or healthcare company. It encourages students to develop the skill set for posts in local, regional, national or even international government policy making bodies (for example Professional Bodies, Ministries of Health, World Health Organization).

Opportunities within health related industries e.g. the pharmaceutical industry may also be relevant for some graduates.

Where our graduates work

Within the professional experience modules, students have the option of undertaking an internship with a host organisation or, alternatively, campus-based professional experience. Internships are subject to a competitive application and selection process and the host organisation may include the University.

The professional experience modules are not available to students undertaking the part-time programme.

Students enrolled onto the 12 month full-time programme, who wish to undertake voluntary work placements with relevant organisations can do so, facilitated by the Faculty’s Employability and Placement Unit. These provide opportunities for you to apply your knowledge and develop your management skills in the work place. These opportunities are usually available to students  in the second half of the course.
