ScHARR, one of the largest multi-disciplinary Schools of public health research and health services research in the UK has a distinguished and wide range of postgraduate taught courses, many of which can be studied via attending or distance learning (DL) routes.
In September 2014, this tradition of excellence and research-led teaching will be extended with the launch of our exciting and innovative online MSc International Health Management and Leadership. This course offers you enhanced learning where you will be taught by leading experts in the field of health management and leadership based in ScHARR and the University of Sheffield International Faculty, City College in Greece, running the Executive MBA programme. These lecturers have in-depth expertise and experience in research and teaching international health management and leadership.
You will engage in key debates and latest developments regarding leadership and management approaches that work in health care settings and how to make sense of the major challenges of managing health care and health programmes in the context of the global recession, widening inequalities and unequal distribution of knowledge and practitioner skills.
The course will cover the following core modules:

You can also select from the following elective modules:

The course is flexible and student-focused and will provide you with an opportunity to develop or build on existing qualifications in an increasingly competitive globalised health market.
