Before Studying

Have you ever thought of advancing your career in the healthcare industry? Are you working in management or administration in a hospital or healthcare facility? If so, you might want to consider the new online Hospital and Healthcare Management MBA, offered jointly by the highly ranked Management Center Innsbruck (MCI), the prestigious Charles University and the dynamic Advance Institute in Prague.


The part-time MBA program in Health and Hospital Management represents a clever combination of online and on-campus sessions. Participants profit from state-of-the-art knowledge, immediately applicable to their professional practice. Moreover, the innovative blended learning model creates a maximum of flexibility, regarding both time and location.

The MBA Program is offered by the MCI Management Center Innsbruck in cooperation with the Institute of Economic Studies of Charles University and the Advance Healthcare Management Institute in Prague. It focuses on health systems in Central Europe and serves as a multidisciplinary basis with specializations either in health or hospital management.

A modern hospital is one of the most complex enterprises to manage. Managers deal with diverse, highly trained professionals and teams. They must be on top of cutting-edge technology. They need to understand procurement, financial management and accounting. And they need to be able to navigate a complex authorizing environment within the boundaries and limitations of national health systems. Our four-semester program addresses these challenges and is tailored to those who are already working in hospital management or health facilities administration.

The MBA in Health and Hospital Management is designed for doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, administrators, economists, accountants, lawyers and other professions in leading positions, who operate in hospitals, clinics, offices or in the pharmaceutical and other health-oriented industries and wish to:

  • obtain state-of-the art knowledge in management & leadership with high practical relevance;
  • accomplish essential changes in both clinical and administrative processes in health-related disciplines;
  • advance their careers with an internationally acknowledged academic degree.
