The provision of health and care services has become more complex, more costly and more intensive. It has to be provided in ever tighter time frames, in increasingly complex organisations and beyond their boundaries, and it has to take changing social conditions into account. Not least, the ageing of the population, fewer births, migration and ethnic change indicate changing needs in care. That is why highly qualified health professions have a future - all the more so if they use scientifically based measures whose quality is controlled. With the degree programme in Nursing & Healthcare Management, we prepare you specifically to make an important contribution to overcoming these challenges and to help shape the health care management of tomorrow.
