ADMINISTRATION & GLOBAL HEALTH LEADERSHIP
The Master’s program in Public Health with a specialization in the field of Health Systems Administration and Global Health Leadership is dedicated to providing students with a strong foundation from which to critically examine current global health challenges. The next generation of health care leaders will need to understand the multifaceted nature of society and how it relates to public health issues. They will also need to have sophisticated leadership skills to serve an ever more complex society, and to manage cross-cutting, multi-sectoral, top-down and bottom-up comprehensive programs, within and beyond the health services. In an increasingly integrated world marked by growing disparity, public health leaders will need to be aware of how global and national forces affect health within and between national borders. The program nurtures high levels of sophistication, excellent communication skills, and a deep knowledge of public health and global health, as well as prepares future practitioners and researchers for leadership roles in settings across the globe.
The mission of the program is to produce public health professionals who will become leaders in global health and who have integrated knowledge and training in epidemiology, biostatistics, social sciences, health and environmental sciences, health services management, public health policy, and other disciplines.
The one-year program is taught in English over three consecutive semesters from October through September. Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded a Master of Public Health (MPH) with a certificate of specialization in Health Systems Administration and Global Health Leadership.
The program is accredited in the United States by CEPH (Council for Education in Public Health).
