ESSEC to Offer an MSc in Management of Health Industries

Program will be offered out of the school's Singapore campus

ESSEC Business School will launch an MSc in Management of Health Industries out of its Singapore campus, beginning this year.

The program is designed to prepare students for management careers in the health sector in Asia. It is generally aimed at post-graduates who have a background in life sciences, medicine or pharmacy; however, people who would like to transition into health care management are welcome to apply as well.

The program will be 10 months long and is set to cover a variety of general and health-specific curriculum. Required courses range from "Market Access and Health Economics," to "Strategic Marketing in Health Industries." Other courses will help students get insight into the various health industries in Asia.

Indeed, these industries are set to boom: Healthcare spending in Asia is projected to grow to over $2 trillion in 2018. And while MSc programs in healthcare management are fairly common in the West (Imperial offers an MSc in International Health Management, for example,) there are not many offered by business schools in Asia. 

ESSEC's MSc in Health Industries will also include a hands-on project component, guided by a professor and somebody who works in the industry. The project intends to help students develop "innovative solutions to complex real-world issues," according to the course webpage.

Students will also have the opportunity to pursue an internship, but this will not be mandatory.

The program is set to begin in December. Applications are open until October 15. No work experience is required, but applicants will need to be fluent in English and must take the GMAT.

Scholarships of up to SGD$10,000 are available.
