Overview

The European Health Economics & Management (Eu-HEM) Master’s degree offered by Management Center Innsbruck, the Universities of Bologna and Oslo, as well as Erasmus University Rotterdam, equips students with everything they need for a career in an international environment. The program was introduced in 2012 and, already in 2015, attained accreditation as well as quality assessment by respective bodies in Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, and Norway. In 2017, the Eu-HEM program was recognized as Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree by the European Commission. All four members of the consortium thus, recognize the joint degree and joint diploma awarded upon completion of the program.

Another distinct feature of the European Master’s is its provision of altogether six areas of specialization available to students from the second semester: Management of Healthcare Institutions, Economic Evaluation in Healthcare, Health Economics, Decision Making in Healthcare, Global Health, and Healthcare Finance and Management.

The program is based on blended learning. Consequently, it combines online modules with on-campus classes. On the one hand, this guarantees a large degree of flexibility and, on the other hand, it provides plenty of opportunity for interaction with teachers and fellow students.

European Health Economics & Management primarily targets graduate students aiming to contribute to the development of the health care sector. Completion of this course enables them to assume managerial positions in health care institutions, pharmaceutical companies, international organizations, and many more institutions related to the field.
