Master of Science in Health Care Management (HCM)


The research-oriented, interdisciplinary approach of the Master’s program in Health Care Management takes up questions of providing and managing health care. Our mission is to address the structural changes within the healthcare sector and to educate specialists in Health Care Management.

In addition to applied aspects, the program puts an emphasis on current research developments, especially in the fields of health economic evaluation, health care provider research, and network administration. We pursue an interdisciplinary approach, in which the medical aspect, with a focus on evaluation, has great importance. During their projects and master thesis work, we integrate students into research and development projects, which allows them to obtain a broad set of methodological skills. This also enables students to learn from their own primary research.


The M.Sc. degree program is designed to take three semesters (90 credits) and is divided into seven modules, plus a Master’s thesis. Modules are self-contained units that teach partial qualifications as part of the overall program objectives. Modules are completed within one semester.

  • Consecutive Master’s program.

  • Begin studying in either Winter or Summer Semester.
  • A-Module is always offered in the Summer Semester.
  • B-Module is always offered in the Winter Semester.

Career Paths

The consecutive Master’s degree program qualifies graduates to serve in professional and managerial capacities at governmental ministries, academic institutions, associations, and other self-governing bodies. The program lays the necessary foundation for evidence-based analysis, evaluation, and decision-making, which enables graduates to plan and implement policies. For health insurance carriers, healthcare providers, and consultancies, graduates work on interdisciplinary teams to develop, evaluate, and implement innovative healthcare supply concepts.
