What does the future hold for health care?

In developing as well as developed countries, general practices will increasingly play a crucial clinical role in health care. However, professionalising these practices requires leadership skills and business acumen. This combination of health care leadership and business skills is also needed in other hubs in the public and private health care space – from hospitals and clinics to pharmaceutical businesses, health technology businesses and regulatory bodies. This puts the business of health care in the spotlight.

The MBA in Health Care Leadership offered by USB is perfect for a clinician or a general practitioner who wants to take on managerial and leadership roles in the health care industry, group practices or government.
