Course Summary

Why this course?

The MSc Health & Care Leadership is an internationally recognised, interdisciplinary postgraduate degree that provides participants with the underpinnings for a successful leadership career in the health and care sector.

It is suitable for both established and aspiring leaders looking to lead complex services, departments, programmes and systems. This includes clinical and nurse leaders across any speciality, allied healthcare professionals, service managers and other nonclinical leaders across the health and care sector, including the third sector.

Established leaders have the opportunity to study core disciplines and hone the knowledge and skills required to succeed at the most senior levels. The programme provides a springboard for aspiring leaders to transition from more functionalist positions to more senior, strategic roles.

Drawing on the depth and breadth of expertise across the University and our extensive networks of sector experts, the programme incorporates the latest research and thought leadership, along with practice-based knowledge, insights and skills. Participants will develop and enhance the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to work in partnership within and across organisational boundaries, leverage technology and deliver high-value, service-user and patient-centred outcomes across complex environments.
