New UCL Global Business School for Health offers health-focused business Masters
As the world’s first business school dedicated to health and healthcare management, the UCL GBSH aims to elevate the global impact of healthcare delivery and transform healthcare access, experience, and outcomes around the world by empowering healthcare management leaders of the future through high-quality education.
The new school will address issues seen in the global health sector, including labour shortages and gender inequality in leadership, as well as other challenges brought to the forefront throughout the pandemic. This includes aging populations, increases in non-communicable diseases, inefficiencies, gender inequalities in leadership, and rising costs.
The school will do this through offering short courses, Executive Education, an MBA Health programme, and Master’s programmes, including MSc Biotech and Pharmaceutical Management, MSc Global Healthcare Management with routes, and MSc Digital Health and Entrepreneurship.
The MSc Biotech and Pharmaceutical Management programme with be led by Dr Radi Haloub. Combining science with business, this programme explores the management side of biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and launching new drugs in the biopharma sector.
“It is important to say that the nature of biotech and pharmaceutical companies is related to the knowledge that is stored in marketing and research projects. These courses, such as our UCL GBSH course, apply a business mindset to this area of health, teach students leadership skills and encourage creativity,” says Dr Haloub.
And the MSc Digital Health and Entrepreneurship will be led by Dr Adam Dubis. This programme explores innovations in digital health for prevention and early intervention, empowering students to identify solution to global health needs.
“Digital Health is a rapidly changing field filled with complexities and jargon. I am looking forward to teaching a course to demystify the space and help the next generation of Digital Health Leaders get started,” says Dr Dubis.
The MSc Global Health Management programme with routes focuses on essential skills and connections needed to transform healthcare delivery, with specialist routes in analytics, finance, and leadership.
Applications for The MSc Biotech and Pharmaceutical Management programme and most MSc Global Health Management programme routes are closed until Autumn, but applications for the MSc Digital Health and Entrepreneurship and MSc Global Healthcare Management programme (analytics route) are open until June 30th.
