Why this programme?
The master’s programme Governance and Leadership in European Public Health will train you to become a health professional with a well-defined outlook. After you have completed the programme, you'll be able to conduct independent research and formulate effective and appropriate health policies by putting forward arguments and supporting data from a comparative, often cross-border point of view.
Close interaction with international staff
One of the key features of this programme is its educational format. It’s self-directed and it requires you to be active participant. Close interaction with international students and staff will help you acquire skills needed to look across borders and learn from practices elsewhere. The staff is also well-connected to important international organisations in the field. These connections may also be valuable to you when you are looking for a job later on in your career.
Unique focus on European policy domain
The search for best practices is a key and unique part of Governance and Leadership in European Public Health in Maastricht: nowhere else in Europe will you find a programme like this. The programme provides you with the background and skills to analyse public health systems throughout Europe. You’ll also learn how to prepare, support and monitor high-level decision-making processes in European institutions, in government, and in public and private organisations.
In my view, doing research that contributes to the common good, is the most rewarding thing on earth.
