M.A. Health Care Education

Study programme

Management in the healthcare and social sector requires entrepreneurial, market-related and economic-oriented thinking and acting.

In this respect, responsible decision-making today is more essential than ever before: responsibility for people and their development, for patients and clients, for processes and tasks and for the future. Because responsibility does not stop at the borders of one’s own organisation.

Our master study programme prepares you for social challenges and gives you the instruments to redefine your own professional aims.


Master study program also possible in combination with a position working on a project

The  program "Project and Studies" offers the completion of the master study program in combination with a position working on a project.

More information: Projekt und Studium (in German)
