The MBA in Health and Social Care provides students with knowledge and understanding of strategic management, as well as practical insight of contemporary issues in Health and Social Care Organisations.
The complexity of modern healthcare and social care, arising from constant innovation, has been escribed as being “an order of magnitude” greater than other industries. Currently, health and social care service users increasingly demand a personalised, higher quality health care experience, whilst the threat of public sector austerity increases the pressure on providers, including the healthcare and social care supply chain, to deliver it. This postgraduate degree addresses the specific demands placed on professionals who are responsible for leading policy, strategy and services in their organisation; be it in the public, private or voluntary aided sector.
