Why a MSc in Management of Healthcare and Life Sciences?
The environment in which healthcare organizations arecurrently operating is increasingly characterized by turbulence and complexity. Many healthcare systems around the world are urged to change considering new epidemiological trends, of economic crises, and of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, to meet the needs of aging, multi-pathological and chronic patients, yet pursuing the unquestionable need of remaining sustainable, healthcare systems must necessarily prioritize digitalization processes. This is key to provide health services in effective ways, although within appropriate settings (including patients’ homes). Public health systems and the life sciences industry are today a single ecosystem that need new managerial profiles to ensure sustainability and development. Consequently, healthcare managers need a multi-faceted set of new skills to address these challenges successfully. Developing them in an international program sharpens the ability to learn from different experiences and to contextualize or adapt successful strategies to one’s own reality.
With this Master participants will be able to:
improve their managerial competencies in the healthcare management field;
develop state of the art knowledge of current trends in health care systems and hospital governance;
understand the role of all the stakeholders of the healthcare system (including patients and citizens, different providers of care, life sciences industry), as well as how they may evolve in the future;
learn how to drive technological innovation effectively;
learn more about best practices and emerging trends in different countries around the world;
develop practical skills by implementing theoretical knowledge in concrete case studies and/or in an internship;
develop research skills to carry out research or to use it effectively in decision-making processes;
build a strong international network with colleagues from other countries.
The Master is structured around five modules:
1. Understanding Healthcare Systems;
2. Facing organizational and managerial challenges;
3.Driving technological innovation;
4. Life sciences and biotechnology;
5. Implementing Research in Healthcare.
The Master course is organized around a mixed/ blended approach and can be followed either online or in presence. Physical presence in Rome is highly recommended for some activities, to strengthen the efficacy of flipped activities and to build a strong network.
All lectures are run in English
