(Bachelor of Arts)

Digitisation, new technologies and demographic change have a strong impact on the development of the health care system. Where medical diagnosis and therapy used to be the focus of attention, today economic and legal factors are also increasingly part of everyday life in the healthcare industry. Accordingly, there has been an enormous increase in the demand for specialists who, in addition to medical specialist knowledge, also possess business management expertise.

The degree programme Business Sciences with the specialization Healthcare Management combines business management topics with subject-specific know-how of the health sector. You will discover the basics of healthcare management, learn how to implement quality management, apply health promotion measures, use company health management, conduct health research and apply digital innovations in health management. The bbw University offers you the opportunity to combine sound knowledge with professional and practical experience.

Upon successful completion of your studies, you will qualify for work in a national and international environment. In addition to the management functions of hospitals and medical practices, health insurance funds and associations, care facilities, spa and wellness facilities, you can expect entry and career opportunities in the areas of personnel management, financing and development, marketing, quality management and corporate healthcare management.
