Online Postgraduate Course in Health Economics

Methodology

The Online Postgraduate Course in Health Economics will be taught entirely online, in distance format. This involves a specific teaching methodology, with intensive use of the virtual classroom and appropriate evaluation mechanisms.

The virtual classroom where the course will be taught is based on the following elements: All the documents used will be available throughout the course in the form of web pages that can be consulted on the Internet.

Participants will also be able to download the print version of the content of the teaching units. In this way, they will be able to do most of the course work off-line if they wish.

Communication between teachers and participants will be based on debates and the private course e-mail.

The teaching method used during the course will be based on case studies and participation in discussion forums. All the topics in the programme will feature a number of tests consisting of self-assessed multiple-choice questions.

Each module will have a duration of eight weeks. Each of its teaching units will last two weeks.

Tools

UPF Barcelona School of Management’s online masters, postgraduate programs and short courses are aimed at professionals who prefer to work 100% online, without attending face-to-face in-classroom sessions. This type of learning requires the active participation of the student through a wide variety of online resources (documents, bibliography, 2.0 tools, videos, interactive applications, etc.) that enable learning, practical work and the acquisition of new key competences.
