Meet with Class of 2024: MSc Health Economic, Policy and Management

I am delighted to introduce you about this stunning class of HEPM 2022-2024. This cohort not only have the mature students but also the interesting backgrounds. The data presented in this blog is collected by the internal survey. Allow me to extend my gratitude to Laura Huguette Maragaño VacaPereira for her kind help in conducting survey.

The objective is to provide additional information on the characteristics and origins of students enrolled in the program. You may also read about 2020-2022 cohort and 2021-2023 cohort of Health Economics, Policy and Management serves as a prime illustration of the considerable diversity found in KI’s classrooms.

Gender & Age Profile

Age of under 25 is 32%, many of whom are super active and close familiarity to academic learning setting. The remaining of the class, 68% are over 25 years old who have a few or many years of working experience. It is notable that as much as 36% is 30+ years old. Incredibly matured students group of this would be super nice for sharing experiences during the discussion sessions and group assignments.

Class of 2024, therefore, seem to have a better mixed of classmates (both younger and mature talents) studying together.

Goals after the course?

You may want to know which career most of them wish to pursue after the course. Yet the reality may differ or may even change the mind after learning some topics during the course. After all, we can not know for sure of our destiny. Anyhow, I have compiled their desired career route immediately after the graduation (correct as of now).
