The course was co-designed with local NHS partners and we continue to develop its content to ensure that the content is up to date and relevant to participants. It is designed to respond to the changing global and UK landscape by developing competitive solutions to manage the competing demands of service users, commissioners and regulators.

All Executive MBA students also undertake a management project and the MBA Healthcare students focus on projects relevant to their own work in healthcare. 

The programme can be completed in two to four years and you can choose from several starting points throughout the year.

There is good research evidence that shows that healthcare organisations where clinicians have a significant role in their management are more effective, safer and more efficient.
