Global healthcare expert joins world-first business school for health

Following on from its earlier move to strengthen its ranks, the world’s first business school dedicated to health has made another appointment to even further bolster its knowledge and expertise output.

University College London’s (UCL) ground-breaking Global Business School for Health (GBSH) has appointed Mark Britnell as a Professor, who will channel his three decades’ worth of knowhow accrued from working in both the private and public sector across more than 80 counties worldwide to the benefit of the health leaders of tomorrow.

Professor Britnell, who is already a trustee at The King’s Fund, will now build on his previous role at the health school where he was a Visiting Professor last year, as in his new position he will make a teaching and careers advisory contribution to the school’s MBA Health – the first MBA geared towards healthcare.

Mark will also be supporting the school’s executive education and development training programmes, which have been created to stimulate the growth of the next generation of leaders in healthcare.

Professor Mark Britnell said: “Healthcare as we know it is changing before our eyes and becoming more complex. We need talented leaders trained in exactly the skills that UCL GBSH brings forward.

“I’m looking forward to bringing my decades of experience of leading healthcare all over the world to this fantastic organisation. UCL GBSH is a disruptor, and I’m proud to be a part of transforming the way the world sees healthcare management education.“

Director at UCL GBSH, Professor Nora Colton, added: “In the first year of UCL GBSH we’ve made an incredible impact in changing the future of healthcare management. We’ve made strong bridges between the public and private health sector to find solutions that face patients the world over, and have trained professionals with the skills to tackle healthcare crises.

“Mark, with his practitioner experience, joining is another step forward for our School, and we’re so glad to have him and his extensive expertise on board.”
