What is it?

The health care system, as well as health care companies, are facing a future of complex challenges. With medical innovations, an aging population, rising health care costs, and tight public coffers, the need for highly qualified economists in this segment is growing steadily.

The bachelor’s degree program in health care economics academically trains process managers for the health care sector who can work at the interface between economics and patient care.

The first three semesters teach important fundamentals in health care economics and business administration:

  • Organizational structures of the health care market and models to organize and finance healthcare.
  • Budgeting, controlling, hospital accounting, annual financial statements
  • Medical knowledge for economists, ethics and social law
  • Economics, mathematical and statistical principles

Specialization courses in semesters four through six:
