Health Economics is a relatively new but rapidly growing field. As the global population grows, so does our need for more advanced and cost-effective health care. This means that specialists who understand how best to use limited resources are very sought after. By taking a programme in Health Economics you are entering a profession which offers good employment prospects across a range of different sectors (Academia, Pharmaceutical industry, Private consultancy, Government or public sector organisations, and the voluntary sector).
This programme aims to give graduate economists and health professionals an understanding of how economic ideas and principles may be applied to health, public health, and health care.
