Population Health Management



September - February


2 year


The Hague

Taught in The Hague

Today's health care system faces many challenges. Population Health Management aims at tackling these challenges in a broad sense and has emerged as an important strategy for health care worldwide.

The two year programme combines knowledge insights from epidemiology, data analysis in healthcare, medicine, public administration and behavioral sciences into a globally unique interdisciplinary program. Students with various backgrounds work together through a combination ­of both online- and intensive on-campus education.

At the end of the programme, you will be prepared to work as an interdisciplinary academic trusted partner, contributing - as a strategic broker - to the changes needed in today's fragmented healthcare system.


After graduating, you will have the opportunity to work at different organisations in strategic staff positions, researcher at an academic institute, or - depending on your specialisation - as a data scientist. You will be equipped with the skills necessary to thrive in institutions, insurers and suppliers within healthcare and social care, as well as at international, national and local policy organisations. You will be the broker between various perspectives, bridging gaps between fields and with a clear vision on future sustainable healthcare.
