Careers

Your International Healthcare Management career outlook

After completing your studies for a Master’s degree in International Healthcare Management, you’ll be uniquely qualified to tackle different responsibilities in the healthcare sector, based on your preferences. Because it’s such a large industry, and continually evolving, the demand for skilled professionals is always high. As an International Healthcare Management Master’s graduate, you can work as…

Healthcare Management Consultant

Help domestic and international healthcare enterprises run themselves more efficiently, without losing sight of the quality of service they need to provide. As a management consultant, you’ll conduct market analysis on behalf of your clients, recommend restructuring steps and suggest and implement cost-saving and value-adding business strategies. You’ll work hard towards turning companies into industry leaders, and build your name and reputation in the process.

Product Manager

Product managers are responsible for all tasks involving a specific product or service. From planning, designing and coordinating between different departments, to managing quality and taking care of after-sales: as a product manager, you’ll find yourself working on launching new medicine, medical devices or insurance policies. Combine business skills, a hunger for success and familiarity with the healthcare sector, and develop a fast-paced international career.

International Regulatory Manager

Ensuring regulatory compliance is one of the main challenges of healthcare management professionals, which makes this role be a great choice for professionals who aren’t afraid of taking responsibility – and being well rewarded for it. Get to know country-specific and market-specific regulations and legal conditions, work together with government officials and regulatory bodies and develop legal compliance strategies in unison with companies’ legal departments.
