Last updated February 17, 2018
The University of Manchester is one of the UK’s original 'redbrick' universities with a proud history, including 25 Nobel Prize winners among its legacy. It has been a place nurturing knowledge and connecting the brightest minds to find innovative solutions to the world's greatest challenges. Reputably UK’s largest campus-based University, Manchester offers specialist and interdisciplinary courses with highest academic rigor.
The University of Manchester China Centre was established in 2008, originally responsible for bringing blended learning courses from Alliance Manchester Business Schools to China. It officially re-opened as The University Manchester China Centre on 25th September 2016 by President and Vice-Chancellor of the University Prof. Dame Nancy Rothwell. Courses accessible include Part-time MBA Programmes, Specialist Masters’ Programmes and collaborative programs with Shanghai Tongji University and Shanghai JiaoTong University.
This unique Masters’ programme focuses on the global challenges facing healthcare leaders, and the roles that clinicians, managers, and the wider healthcare economy can play in reshaping healthcare services. It will equip current and aspiring leaders and managers with cutting-edge knowledge and practice from around the world. It is particularly beneficial for those who need to challenge their healthcare-specific knowledge and maximize their potential. After graduating, your leadership skills will help organizations around the world design and deliver healthcare that creates public value and puts the patient at the heart of everything.
Alliance Manchester Business School has taught Masters’ programmes in healthcare leadership for over 50 years. Our global community of healthcare management alumni includes over 2,000 graduates working in influential leadership positions.

This is an exciting opportunity to study with the brightest healthcare professionals from around the globe and gain a truly international perspective. We hope you can join us to benefit from over 50 years’ excellence in this field.
