The UCL Global Business School for Health (UCL GBSH) programme director Professor Nora Colton explores the urgent need for business schools that are focused on healthcare management, such as the UCL GBSH.

In this article for the Health Service Journal, Nora reflects on the history of business schools, and how global tragedies, events and issues have influenced business programmes. With the COVID-19 pandemic having shaken the world and significantly impacted the healthcare industry, it only makes sense that business schools begin to place health at the centre of their programmes.

UCL's Global Business School for Health has done just this, offering a flagship UCL MBA Health as well as three health-centred masters programmes and a range of Executive Education courses.

Nora explains in the article, "The ambition of the UCL GBSH is to bring together world-class academics from business management and related health areas to educate, inspire and challenge our future healthcare leaders and managers".
