Global Health and Crisis Management | Master of Health Care
If you have an open mind, are tolerant and enthusiastic and are able to go deep into a subject, this programme is for you. In addition to theoretical skills, good interactive skills are important. Furthermore we appreciate a constructive, critical attitude and good evaluation skills.
The total extent of the programme is 90 credits and it consists of core competencies (30 credits), complementary competencies (30 credits) and thesis (30 credits).
It takes 1,5 years to complete the degree. Therefore, you should start working on your development project (thesis) already during the first months of study by combining it as an essential part of your studies.
The curriculum includes no work placement. You may, however, participate in an international development aid project and, for instance, gather data for their thesis abroad according to their personalised study plans.
Studying in the Global Management and Health Care programme
The Global Health and Crisis Management Master's Degree programme is taught in English. You will learn expertise and action in the Global health context.
Global health is included very extensively. It includes, for instance, sustainable development, worldwide crises and infection control and prevention. You study infection prevention in situations in which communicable diseases have spread or are in a risk to spread locally or even globally. You learn about the protocol of epidemiology and infection prevention and the tools used at the European and global level. Visitors from Laurea’s partner universities visit in study units and projects.
The teaching is largely based on the WHO’s models and other international models. The most important areas of generic competences include communication in a multidisciplinary team, management, development and leadership.
As a blended learning student, you will have three days a month of contact teaching on Laurea’s Tikkurila campus. The campus is located near Tikkurila railway station, easily accessible from the airport and by train from the north.
The online learning environment promotes learning. You will write essays and carry out structured online exercises according to "e-tivity" instructions. You learn to use online tools as well as evaluate and comment on each other’s output. The exercises and essays may be preparatory assignments for the next contact teaching session or they may serve as outcome assignments.
Global Health studies are based on global needs. You are provided with general research and development competences to work in areas such as Africa or Nepal, for instance. The problems addressed are global but may also be associated with phenomena such as immigration to Finland and the improvement of this process. Together with the Global Health Ethics, the actual programs transforming our world according to the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development constitute the value basis of the Global Health and Crisis Management degree programme.
As a university of applied science graduate you may have a possibility to continue your studies in doctoral or master studies at universities. Many are working as ambassadors of their background organisation, at reception centres, among immigrants, at the non-governmental global, international and Finnish organisations. During the studies, new career doors will open.
We organise international symposia on themes such as Ethical Leadership and Management and Global Health. Simulation also constitutes part of the studies. In simulations, students practice tasks such as crisis management – that is, how to act as a leader in challenging, unexpected situations. You may focus on development of practical areas in your studies but on their best the studies will be carried out in close connection to the students’ development projects.
At the beginning of the studies, it is beneficial to define what competence you want to develop for your future expertise. For Health Care Masters, there are good employment opportunities in catastrophe work and in global and local health care development. We also collaborate with companies. After graduation, you may be employed in the public or private sector as an expert or start a business of your own in Finland or your home country.
