    What is health economics?

    The Bachelor's programme in Health Economics trains business economists and economists for the health care system who work at the interface between economics and patient care.
    As a health economist, you will contribute to shaping the growing health care sector. Topics such as personnel management, marketing or corporate management are also of great relevance in health care facilities (health management). Political, social and legal aspects are also taken into account. They support the various players in this growth industry to improve their economic position and thus improve care.
