An innovative health focused business education - on your terms
The UCL Executive MBA Health programme blends world-class research, teaching, and impact with practical business and leadership skills. You will combine knowledge, skills, and behaviours in business and management studies found on a high-quality general MBA with in-depth understanding of global healthcare systems. UCL’s on-line EMBA includes an immersive week in London during the first year and a fieldwork week in the second year in the USA. It offers greater flexibility than the full/part-time MBA Health programme which may suit individuals at different stages of their careers.
As healthcare now accounts for more than 10% of global Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the Executive MBA Health equips you for career and entrepreneurship opportunities in a growing and dynamic global sector.
