You will also focus on the health opportunities of different groups in the population and learn about the global impact of disease.

Real-world assignments and cooperation

Real-world assignments in the health industry form the basis for the two-semester project which allows you to gather comprehensive experience in project management and collaboration with customers and team members. You will take on tasks of personnel and project management with a clear focus on the goal to be achieved.
