Health management qualifications offered by the University of Otago

Study in Christchurch, Dunedin, or Wellington

Qualifications in health management are designed to facilitate the acquisition of skills in business management for health professionals who are, or who wish to become, involved in the strategic direction and general management of health-related organisations. 

Our programmes also provide managers from other sectors, who may have good business skills but limited experience in the health sector, the opportunity to gain greater knowledge and understanding of the specific issues and challenges in the health system.
