LONDON, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Increasing global public health challenges are creating the need for a new international community of professionals and practitioners who can plan, lead and implement effective public health solutions. To help prepare professionals to tackle rising and complex health issues, the University of Roehampton, London Online's new Master of Public Health (MPH) programme features an interdisciplinary approach that enables students to learn from one another and collaborate across geographic regions and disciplines to address health challenges.
The new MPH, Roehampton Online's first health programme, offers online collaboration with a diverse, global student population and expert faculty. Students have the opportunity to combine their professional experience with the public health knowledge gained in the programme to prepare them for imminent changes in the industry.
"Roehampton's online MPH is anchored by a critical awareness that public health challenges are no longer local or national, but global. They are also political, and intimately related to environment and global security," Raymond Lee, Ph.D., a professor of biomechanics at the University of Roehampton who helped develop the online MPH. "The online format of the programme allows students to connect with public health practitioners in other countries and regions, providing them with a global perspective and access to international expertise from a diverse range of disciplines, which won't be available in a traditional classroom."
The MPH programme is designed for professionals and practitioners already working in specific areas relating to public health who are looking to advance their skills and knowledge in the field, as well as those looking to transition to a career in public health. Students may come from a wide range of backgrounds, including healthcare, education, business, government and nonprofit organisations. Together, they learn from the diverse experience within the global classroom while developing an international professional network outside of the classroom.
The MPH joins a growing portfolio of online masters programmes at Roehampton Online, including a Master of Business Administration (MBA), MSc in Project Management, MSc in Information Systems Management, MSc in Strategic Human Resource Management and MSc in Strategic Supply Chain Management, each at an all-inclusive tuition fee of US$10,000. Roehampton Online also recognises relevant work experience in place of a higher degree, such as a bachelor's degree, as an alternative route to admission.
Through these programmes, adult learners around the world gain the critical-thinking skills and practical knowledge they need to expand their expertise and potentially advance their careers. In a collaborative online environment that fosters learning, students engage with a diverse global community through blogs, message boards and chat groups.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
