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. It aims to support the enhancement of your 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. Interdisciplinary learning is a feature of this programme with students studying alongside their peers on other MSc programmes delivered within the faculty.
The MSc Global Healthcare Management with Professional Experience (HLST276) is an extended full-time master’s with a substantive professional experience component. Within the professional experience modules, you will undertake an internship* with an external organisation or campus-based professional experience*. 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. If you do not wish to undertake an internship or are not successful in securing an internship, you will undertake a campus-based professional experience which will deliver similar learning outcomes through supervised projects and activities designed to offer you the opportunity to integrate theory with an understanding of professional practice.
