Develop cross-functional management skills and acquire a technical and analytical skill set
With the growth of health industries worldwide, demand for managerial professionals in the industry has been increasing steadily.

The MSc in Management of Health Industries is offered at ESSEC's Asia-Pacific campus in Singapore.
In line with ESSEC’s pedagogy of “learning by doing”, our curriculum blends classes with case studies and is taught by both ESSEC faculty and industry experts.
