Launched in September 2021 with a vision to create a world-leading business school, the UCL Global Business School for Health (UCL GBSH) focuses on health, healthcare management and leadership in the healthcare sector.
UCL GBSH aims to impart high-quality education to empower future healthcare management leaders and elevate the global impact of healthcare delivery, transform healthcare access, experience, and outcomes around the world.
The GBSH offers short courses, executive education programmes and master's programmes, including Health Policy and Practice, an MSc in Digital Health and Entrepreneurship, an MBA Health and many more courses alongside online programmes.
Nora Colton, Director of the UCL GBSH, said: "The launch of the UCL GBSH could not come at a better time. We have a labour force that's too small for the growing demand for healthcare. By 2030, it has been found that we will be 15 million health workers short of meeting demand in the global healthcare system."
