Health Policy, Planning and Financing
The Specialization in Health Economics, launched in English, offers multi-disciplinary expertise and a problem- oriented approach. Such knowledge and skills will remain relevant in the long run and help graduates understand and analyse key issues of future health systems, such as: efficiency of health technologies, sustainability of health financing, and techniques to measure and influence the performance of health care systems.
Our program prepares students for career positions in both the private and public sectors. This includes health care governance and financing at national and local levels and careers at pharmaceuticals companies, public and private health care providers, as well as education and research institutions.
The Master Program enables graduates to understand the complexities of health care systems both at macro and micro levels and to perform tasks in analysis, planning, financing and management of health technologies, health care services and health systems.
We expect applicants from foreign countries who would like to acquire state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in the areas mentioned above with a special focus on applicability in emerging markets.
Foreign students studying at Hungarian medical universities may choose to combine their medical degree with the degree offered by our program. A master degree in English can also be an attractive option for Hungarian students, given increasing international co-operation in several areas of health care.
