MSc Global Health and Management
On our MSc Global Health and Management programme, you will gain knowledge and understanding of established and emerging concepts, issues, theories and practices in global health and management studies. You will develop appreciation of how these intersect with broader social, economic and political factors, and develop skills to critically engage with these debates. The aim is to develop multidimensional views for more complete impacts in the field.

Eilidh and Lisa with supervisor Dr Lucia D’Ambruoso travelled to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in September 2017 to attend a symposium organised by ECOHOST the Centre for Health and Social Change and the Centre for Global NCDs at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
