Testimonial of former student

"The MSc taught me transferrable knowledge and skills which are needed to be an effective manager in the healthcare sector with an understanding of the external and internal factors. I have learned how to analyse, manage and evaluate the available resources and to consider them in a decision-making process. It has enabled me to plan and implement necessary changes that could help achievement of organizational goals.

The course was supported by knowledgeable teaching staff in a friendly environment which helped me to understand the module topics with ease. The group discussions were effective in allowing students to apply our own experience. The course was supported by the use of a virtual learning environment that was very accessible and useful. I felt close to the University of Bradford because of the very fast and effective e-mail feedback which I used to get from my helpful tutors. The course attendance helped my learning experience which helped me gain a lot from this course.
Lastly I have to mention that the MSc gave me valuable opportunity to gain more knowledge within health management and I am proud that I graduated with this award."
