The NHS Leadership Academy has appointed Nottingham University Business School (NUBS) to deliver an NHS endorsed Masters in Business Administration (MBA). The course is led by the University’s Centre for Health, Innovation, Leadership and Learning (CHILL) in the Business School.

Dr Simon Bishop, CHILL’s Deputy Director (Teaching) and leader of the course, said: “The Nottingham Executive MBA Healthcare is specifically designed for managers and leaders who want to develop their career in healthcare. Participants gain the benefits of studying for an internationally recognised MBA alongside peers from many different industries, while gaining up to date knowledge and skills relevant for the challenges of contemporary healthcare.
