Nottingham University Business School is extending its range of Executive MBA Programmes to include a programme tailored to the needs of the healthcare sector.
The Executive MBA Healthcare is designed in collaboration with the University of Nottingham Medical School to provide a general management training for all professional groups concerned with healthcare from public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Many of the modules will enable healthcare professionals to learn alongside private sector managers from a range of industries, thereby facilitating the sharing of management insights and contextual challenges. The programme offers three specialist healthcare modules that will focus on contextual issues specific to the healthcare sector.
The Executive MBA Healthcare is for managers who want to develop their management knowledge and skills to an advanced level whilst continuing their career. The programme is flexible and can be taken over two to four years enabling participants to pace their studies to match the needs of their organisation or wider commitments. The Executive MBA Healthcare is available to individual applicants, those sponsored by employers, or through a formal partnership with organisations.
The programme is offered as a series of 12 one-week block modules – seven core block modules covering fundamental management disciplines, three core specialist modules, two elective modules, plus a management project which should focus on healthcare. The modules run Monday to Friday and involve approximately 35 hours of class-based study during the week the module runs, plus a further 65 hours of independent study for further reading, and to complete assessments. The management project can deal with a real issue in your organisation, through the application of relevant theory to practice, to produce a major piece of work with practical recommendations.
All our MBA programmes are EQUIS and AMBA accredited.
