Why study Master Health Care Management

Healthcare organisations worldwide are facing challenging issues caused by global trends, such as ageing and lifestyle changes. Good management is vital to solving these increasingly difficult issues in the healthcare sector. The master's programme in Health Care Management equips you to live up to those challenges.

After my study, I started working at Amsterdam UMC, location VUmc and worked there as a Quality and Safety advisor for five years.

I decided to take a few courses in Oslo. It was a fantastic experience and it gave me a different outlook on healthcare management.
