University of Manchester offers new Masters degree in healthcare

DUBAI, May 4, 2017

The University of Manchester Middle East Centre is launching a new part-time specialist Masters degree programme at the Saudi Healthcare Exhibition 2017, where the university is exhibiting for the first time.

The new programme is the MSc International Healthcare Leadership, delivered in a part-time blended learning format and designed for experienced and qualified medical and management professionals in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. The programme can be completed in two years, starting in September 2017. Enrolment is now open until July 30 for the Middle East, said a statement.

The healthcare sector is one of the most dynamic industries in the region with continuing investment in infrastructure and facilities by the public and private sectors, and a growing need for talent to optimise this investment.

The MSc International Healthcare Leadership programme is designed for experienced clinicians and managers already in general management or leaders in healthcare who need to enhance their leadership skills, and those managers who need practical preparation before moving into clinical, project, specialist or business leadership positions. It is designed to equip leaders and managers with the latest knowledge and global healthcare best practice, and to help facilitate experienced managers transfer their skills into the healthcare economy.

Randa Bessiso, director of The University of Manchester Middle East Centre, comments: “The Saudi healthcare sector is the largest in the GCC accounting for more than 50% of the regional market and continued investment in capacity needs to be matched with the skills and talent to ensure this investment ultimately benefits patients. The university’s new healthcare MSc programme for the Middle East provides close personal support and interaction for delegates and will help meet the talent gap in the sector. The University is building on the foundation of the very successful Manchester Global Part-time MBA programme and our experience of supporting working professionals across the region, many from Saudi Arabia, developed over the last 10 years.” – TradeArabia News Service
