What is the degree program about?

As a constantly growing industry, the German healthcare sector is confronted with numerous changes and challenges, which arise, among other things, from demographic change, medical-technical innovations, and constantly changing legal and structural framework conditions. The resulting scarcity problems require the most effective and efficient allocation of resources possible. In order to cope with the changes and to further develop the health care system despite the challenges, qualified specialists are needed who, in addition to industry-specific technical and methodological knowledge, also have a sound knowledge of economics in order to shape and advance the German health care system in the future through innovative interdisciplinary approaches. The Master in Health Care Management and Health Economics prepares its students for this career.

Students take a range of compulsory interdisciplinary courses that provide them with comprehensive insights into the healthcare system and can choose specializations that enable them to become experts in management, economics or politics. The degree program’s focus on the German healthcare system and the extensive practical knowledge that students require means that graduates have excellent career prospects.
