Programme Structure and Organisation

Here you will find detailed information on the structure of the Master's programme and helpful links to the organisation of the Master's programme in Health Care Management.

You can also find this tabular overview in the current Modul catalogue for the Master of Science Health Economics.


The Health Economics programme gives you an interdisciplinary understanding of the field by concentrating on stakeholder groups that are relevant in health care. Therefore, it covers the management perspective (i.e. business administration), system perspective (economics and social policy) and medical perspective (i.e. professionals and patients).

For specialisation within the study programme you can choose a Health Care Manager Track or Health Care Analyst Track. A combination is also possible. The Health Care Analyst Track supports your professional profile for a career in scientific and academic health care institutions. The Health Care Manager Track enables you to specialise for careers in hospital management, quality management or consulting. Analytical-oriented and management-oriented contents are available in each section of the study programme.

  • Within this programme, the compulsory Core and Advanced Sections cover the basic skills and knowledge you need for a recommended track specialisation.
  • The Specialisation Section provides you with a diverse range of seminars and lectures where you can further develop skills according to your interests.
  • The Supplementary Section serves as an additional section for developing a more specific profile. Modules from business administration as well as from the Faculty of Medicine are available to students.
  • The master’s thesis is written towards the end of the programme and can be research or practice oriented corresponding to the student’s interest.

Further details on the structure of the degree programme, such as course of study recommendations and module descriptions, can be found in the module catalogue.
