Health Economics is one of the most impactful branches of economics. It is an applied science that involves the use of economic fundamentals and theories. It helps to understand how individuals, governments, hospitals and healthcare systems, and other stakeholders make decisions regarding the promotion of health and wellbeing of individuals and societies.
One of the aims of health economics is the promotion of a positive and healthy lifestyle and we aim to accomplish this through a rigorous study of all stakeholders involved in the delivery of services across the spectrum of healthcare. The focus is on creating efficiencies through process engineering, technology application, pricing, strategic investment, and modulation of the social fabric.

It is also well suited to new graduates who would like to equip themselves with the knowledge and skills required to create a competitive edge for themselves in their careers in healthcare. The program focuses on hands-on learning through case studies and simulated scenarios that expose the student to complex economic challenges that are faced by health organizations.
