The Masters of Science Health Services Management integrates the specialized study of health care management with the traditional business administration courses. The rationale for this programme of Health Services Management is that traditional health care education programmes do not train clinicians as managers conversant with business practice; conversely, non-clinical managers often do not understand the complexities of health care operations. In order to create real change in the health care industry, managers of health facilities must be facilitated to grasp how all the components of health care provision fit together. Managing an organization as an entire system, means understanding the economic, social, political, and cultural aspects of the health organization. To this end, our programme will provide a unique insight into the complex world of health management in all its aspects.

On completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • Effectively manage health related programs an d projects.
