MSc Innovation in Health Care


IHC is a two-year, full-time Master’s programme emphasising managerial, economic, organisational and business aspects of health care innovation.

About this activity

MSc Innovation in Health Care (IHC) delivers a new type of graduate, with strong skills in the analysis and management of health care innovations. The EIT-labelled course, which is worth 120 ECTS in the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, builds on a partnership between Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and the universities of Copenhagen, Lisbon and Coimbra. IHC opened in 2016 and received the EIT label in that year. This degree gives students organisational, economic, commercial and IT-related skills, as well as an understanding of the operations of the healthcare system. The course draws on real-life cases, and its practical orientation is one of its key features. Class work and projects will bring the students into close contact with potential future employers during their studies, with instruction provided by industry experts and high-quality academic faculty. IHC prepares students for innovation tasks in both national and international settings. Students gain a deeper understanding of national differences and the implications for implementing health care innovation in different markets.
