This is an exciting time to be working in healthcare management. Healthcare is one of the most rapidly evolving sectors in the marketplace, driven by demographic trends as well as medical and technological breakthroughs. Among the many factors driving change in this exciting field are shifts in patients’ expectations and demands, the ongoing redefinition of the who and how of healthcare provision – including changing techniques and methods – and far-reaching innovations in medical and health-related products. At the same time, finance for healthcare is coming under intense scrutiny, with new models and solutions emerging in many different countries and markets.


Supplier (MedTech, BioTech, Pharma)
The medtech, biotech and pharmaceutical industries are emerging as the fastest-growing industrial sectors worldwide, covering a vast range of applications. Over the next decade, this area of the healthcare industry is expected to grow even more rapidly, creating huge business opportunities for international companies. But this sector is also one of the most strictly regulated, which is why it is vital that industry players and their managers should develop the knowledge and skills necessary to drive product innovation, optimise manufacturing processes, enhance customer service, implement best-practice management techniques and support the healthcare value chain.

In specially tailored modules, the MBA programme provides students with the specific knowledge and skills they need to master the intricacies of product design and innovation, manufacturing processes, quality control and marketing – all essential ingredients in the success of healthcare suppliers. The modules are taught in collaboration with key industry partners, giving students direct insights into the best practices in the industry.

Payer / Provider (Insurances, Hospitals and Healthcare Institutions)
Attaining excellence in the delivery of healthcare services in hospitals, clinics and communities requires leadership skills, exceptional management skills and the ability to execute healthcare service delivery processes to the highest standards. In the course of the Frankfurt School MBA programme students are given detailed instruction on service system design, patient-centric service delivery, medical and managerial excellence and the key traits that characterise effective leadership in the healthcare delivery sector.

Healthcare costs are rising and insurers must find a balance between meeting these costs and providing good healthcare coverage. By studying for a Frankfurt School MBA in Healthcare Management alongside other stakeholders in the healthcare industry, managers in healthcare insurances can explore different perspectives and viewpoints in challenging debate and interaction with other players in the healthcare value chain.
