With increased globalization, a recognition that access to quality healthcare is a basic human right, and the launch of the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we live in a world where health and well-being of all people is a high priority. The educational tools needed to deal with issues ranging from refugee health to health innovation, health policy to maternal health, require rigorous training and engagement with complex challenges of our time. NTNU is committed to providing these tools through its MSc in Global Health.
The job opportunities for our graduates will range from programme management in the governmental (e.g. ministries of health or foreign affairs), to non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Whether it is the global organizations (WHO, UNICEF, Save the Children) or country specific organizations, the demand for global health graduates is always high. Education in global health at NTNU will prepare you for a career in global health, whether you work in a hospital setting and deal with refugee health, or work in the field in Africa and look at challenges in mental health of children and adolescents.
Additionally, with our emphasis on innovation and technology, we anticipate that our students will be able to join the workforce in large and small public and private enterprises focusing on healthcare delivery, medical devices and pharmaceuticals.
Finally, the rigour of our master's programme will enable our students, interested and engaged in research, to pursue higher degrees in Global Health and pursue careers in research and development in and outside of academia.
