Course content

Modern healthcare is complex, and requires highly skilled leaders and managers. Our MBA Healthcare Management gives you the opportunity to develop the necessary skills.

Demand for quality healthcare is growing, as rapid advances in treatments and information technologies increase the expectations of patients and healthcare professionals. At the same time resources are limited as budgets are trimmed.

Healthcare leaders now need skills in human and financial resources management, leadership, strategic planning, and organisational design. The ability to manage complex change and organisational decision-making is also key.

This postgraduate MBA will enable you to develop these skills and enhance your capacity to analyse and understand the complex nature of healthcare, and how it is delivered.

If you’re a recent graduate, or a professional with experience in the health or social care sector, studying ARU’s MBA Healthcare Management could provide the vital next step in your career. The knowledge and skills you’ll gain on this Masters course, offered at our Chelmsford campus, will open up a range of career opportunities in senior management and leadership roles in the UK and worldwide.

Studying a postgraduate degree is a great way to develop your career, increase your earning potential and deepen your knowledge of a subject you feel passionate about. Our postgraduate courses support both your professional and personal requirements; you can study part-time or while you work.
