Program description

Recent news coverage has focused heavily on the healthcare business, and it's easy to see that significant shifts are being made to prepare for the future. The need for youthful, up-to-date managers who have a firm grasp of the digital world is apparent in nearly every sector of the healthcare industry.

The 120 ECTS curriculum is designed for those who already hold a bachelor's degree in business or economics.

Students with a bachelor's degree in another discipline who have worked in the healthcare industry for at least a year are the target audience for this 60 ECTS program.
