Course content

The MSc in International Health Management is delivered both at the University of Bradford and at Dubai Knowledge Village.

The programme focuses on developing knowledge and critical understanding of the structure, organisation and sustainability of health systems internationally. It provides opportunities for multi-disciplinary learning with managers from a variety of international backgrounds.

The teaching and learning methods used in this programme include lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials, case studies featuring national and international examples, and use of a virtual learning environment. Individual tutorials will also be held either face-to-face with students, via the phone or internet.

In order to meet the learning outcomes of the programme, assessments require students to integrate theory and apply this to a consideration of health management practice internationally. Assessment methods consist of written assignments, presentations and a management project.

The Management Project module includes compulsory taught sessions and working with a supervisor from the tutorial team, on an individual tutorial basis, over a period normally between 3 to 6 months. The project will be based on a management opportunity or challenge from the student’s current or future workplace.
