Course Summary


Boost your knowledge and understanding of strategic management with our MBA in London and get practical insights into contemporary issues in health and social care organisations.

The complexity of modern healthcare and social care, arising from constant innovation, has been 'an order of magnitude' greater than other industries. Currently, health and social care service users increasingly demand a personalised, higher quality health care experience, whilst the threat of public sector austerity increases the pressure on providers, including the healthcare and social care supply chain, to deliver it. This postgraduate degree addresses the specific demands placed on professionals who are responsible for leading policy, strategy and services in their organisation; be it in the public, private or voluntary aided sector.


ARUL employs assignments, presentations and examinations to measure student progress, along with an innovative case study major project or dissertation.


In today’s competitive employment market, graduates need to stand out from the crowd to successfully secure that all important first full-time job or early promotion. We believe your postgraduate degree from ARUL will enhance your employability and career development.
