Business Administration: Health

Linking education to research and career preparation

Our education is research driven, leading to fresh insights being fed into the courses. An analytical, critical mind and problem-solving capabilities are important qualities in any career our students aspire. To develop such qualities, we work with lecturers that are active in research and discuss academic research right from the start of the degree programme.

In doing so, clear links with professional practices are made. Through case assignments, guest lectures, and other activities, students apply what they learn to practical health care management and health economics problems. As such, you engage in your development as a future professional.

In collaboration with external partners, the faculty conducts research on topical issues such as improving patient logistics; the effectiveness of organizational interventions; implementation and adoption of technological and managerial innovations; continuous quality improvement in healthcare; buyer/supplier relationships between insurance companies and healthcare providers; reducing health inequalities; economic evaluation of innovations or treatments; prevention management issues considering early life conditions and later-life health.

Much of this research is conducted in the Centre of Expertise Healthwise, providing students with numerous links to the outside world. Moreover, many of the lecturers participate in the Aletta School of Public Health, a large multidisciplinary research community.
