Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management and Economics (BSc.HME)

  • Strategic objective: To produce specialized business professionals with a deep understanding of the health industry, its language and unique culture.
  • Our graduates are expected to demonstrate:
    • Ability to apply recent business knowledge, concepts and techniques to healthcare problems and issues.
    • In-depth knowledge of the health industry, the various business functions including management, marketing, finance, accounting and management information system as well as essential medical science.
    • Critical business skills including decision making, problem-solving, leadership, innovation and team building.
    • In-depth understanding of the health industry unique culture and its language.

“Both programs look very well designed, comprehensive in terms of contents, well refined in the teaching methodology, innovative in the mix between class activities and learning by doing activities. Further, it is of extreme interest that fact that both programs develop within a College of Health Economics, Policy & Healthcare Management that is strongly interconnected with a medical school.”

“I am happy to support your programme ………. I have no doubt that your intended four years Bachelor’s programme in Health Economics, Policy and Health Care Management and your subsequent Master’s degree will provide an important learning opportunity for students and generate a cohort of graduates, who will be very much sought after by employers. Health workers with skills in behavioural economics are in short supply in all the health jurisdictions………“
