Program description

Master in International Health & Social Management

The International Health & Social Management program combines aspects of health and social services with the fundamentals of economics, political sciences, and international management. The program – taught entirely in English – targets the future requirements of international cooperation in the health and social sectors, considering that the demand for qualified experts in these fields is on the rise.

In addition to receiving practical training, students are given the opportunity to improve their soft skills as well as their research methods. They are guaranteed to benefit from the progressive outlook of the program, which places as much importance on practical relevance as on international values.

The degree program adopts a blended learning approach and, thus, includes both on-campus classes and online lessons. This allows students a great degree of freedom and flexibility in the completion of their studies, while providing plenty of opportunity to interact with both teachers and fellow students. A range of elective subjects, furthermore, gives students the opportunity to choose from altogether 15 different areas of specialization in the second semester. Several courses are jointly organized with the MCI study program in Social Work.
