The healthcare industry is one of the most diverse and dynamic industries in the world. One of the key pillars of health systems is governance and leadership. While healthcare facilities are often owned and managed by healthcare practitioners, the full range of necessary skill sets is neither taught as part of medical, pharmacy or nursing education nor acquired through experience.
The Managing Healthcare Businesses (MHB) programme builds on a combination of the established strength of business leadership, management and entrepreneurship courses offered at SBS/SU as well as unique healthcare modules that provide deeper insight into the unique elements and issues of the healthcare industry in Africa.
The programme also emphasizes key dimensions of applied business practice in healthcare, provides a broad knowledge and skill base as well as a range of practical tools and concepts and imparting practical relevance to the participants through a variety of methods inherent in the content and methods of the programme.
The curriculum has been designed to address continent-wide practices and needs. Further, the programme, with the support of credit funders and lending institutions, provides an opportunity for participants to apply for and access funding for facility improvement and/or business expansion.
