It offers the best of both worlds - the core of Deakin's MBA program and a tailored set of health units designed to prepare you to manage and lead healthcare services in Australia and overseas.

We recognise that the efficient management and delivery of healthcare will be one of the most pressing challenges facing economies over the coming years. The program offers you the opportunity to tailor MBA studies to the particular issues and challenges associated with the healthcare sector. You will learn the very latest in business and management thinking - and have the opportunity to tailor it to healthcare settings.

To excel in a healthcare organisational environment or management role today, you need more than mere business knowledge. You need a comprehensive understanding of the policy context you work in, and skills to formulate and implement strategies that are necessary to operate efficiently and effectively.

To manage the growing challenges of the nation's health and provision of healthcare, you not only need to understand the health policy and funding context, but also the business end of healthcare delivery such as financing, marketing and economics.

This course offers an advanced combination of business insight and healthcare focus to succeed in this critical area of health service delivery.
