MBA in Health Care Management

The part-time MBA Health Care Management is designed to strengthen and expand management skills for those active in the health care sector. The programme not only provides an interdisciplinary approach to management tasks, but also fosters an enhanced awareness of the trends emerging in academia, science, politics and society likely to influence the future shape of the health sector. As a graduate of this programme, you will have learnt to apply innovative and solution-directed approaches and ideas to meet the demands created by a changing health care system and take the requisite strategic decisions for organisations in the health care sector.

A particular emphasis is placed on developing communicative and social competences. The Leadership Skills seminars, such as Leading Teams, Negotiations or Competence Development (Kode®), on the MBA in Health Care Management support your development as a manager with strong leadership qualities.

The lectures and seminars are held in German.
