OBJECTIVE OF THE HCM PROGRAMME

This Master’s Programme on Health Care Management aims to provide high quality education to aspiring new leaders in the Health Care sector.

The Programme guides students to approach Health Care Management empirically so newly-acquired knowledge and skills are to be mixed with experience and help with real-life problems. This approach is proven possible because the programme was designed with the ever-changing Public Health Policies and the increased responsibilities of Health Care Managers in mind.

In consequence, the students broaden and deepen their grasp on management matters and policy procedures. As a result the students acquire the much-needed knowledge and specialisation to effectively develop and manage the health resources at their disposal and understand the larger issues which determine policy and finance politics.

The Programme is suggested for:

  • anyone wishing to seek lifelong learning, made feasible by the university’s open and distance learning structure,
  • anyone already working in the field of Health Care (public or private sector) wishing to develop personally and professionally,
  • anyone interested in working in the wide field of Health Care,
  • anyone interested in participating in educating and informing the personnel of their organisation,
  • Managers and staff in the public or private sector interested in the advancement of their organisation by effectively managing and developing their resources in Health Care.

  • The international prestige and recognition of Neapolis University of Pafos.
  • Excellent academic staff with strong expertise in the taught subjects.
  • International collaborations with many Universities.

  • The use of advanced technology and resources.
