Health Policy and Management

This multi-disciplinary area within the business school brings together faculty from divergent backgrounds ranging from economics and marketing to political science and business strategy. These faculty members all have interest and experience in management issues as they pertain to policy, funding, and organization and delivery of health care services. Faculty expertise includes: health policy analysis; design, delivery and economic evaluation of health services and programs; consumer behaviour; marketing; governance; and strategic management in for profit and not for profit organizations in the health sector.

Courses offered by area faculty provide support to a wide range of academic programs in addition to the MBA program, including several collaborative graduate programs (e.g. Global Health, eHealth, and Health Management). Courses typically blend theoretical rigor and practical application as our faculty has extensive real world experience in working for government, non-profit organizations, and private sector industries.
