To impact the future of the Gulf Area healthcare: Gruppo San Donato and SDA Bocconi present their new partnership in Dubai

SDA Bocconi School of Management and GSD Healthcare, part of Gruppo San Donato, signed a partnership to promote innovation in healthcare management and delivery through Executive Education and applied research programs targeted to professionals already working in the healthcare field.

The Executive Healthcare Management courses will start in September 2018 and will take place in Dubai over the course of 2-4 days each. Topics will range from public policy, hospital management, healthcare strategy, public health and disease management. Candidates will choose whether to participate in individual certified modules or cluster them towards obtaining higher degrees from the prestigious Italian business school. All upcoming courses will be published on GSD Healthcare web page.

The successful partnership between SDA Bocconi School of Management, a top ranked business school, and Gruppo San Donato, one of the largest private hospital groups in Europe, aims to promote a transformational impact in the future of healthcare in the Gulf Area, boosting clinical excellence, the use of technologies and digitalization, managerial capacities and strategic leadership competences and developing applied research.

Francesco Magro, General Manager of GSD Healthcare, says: “We are extremely proud to work with SDA Bocconi offering together executive education and research in healthcare services delivery and organization and to add this important part to our broad clinical training program in Dubai. We strongly believe that today organizations of all sizes need to be proactive and take the most from international experiences in healthcare”.

Giuseppe Soda, SDA Bocconi Dean, underlines: “Our goal is to be an increasingly international School of Management, capable of conducting rigorous, relevant and multidisciplinary studies and this collaboration is an important opportunity to directly impact the Gulf Area and Middle- Eastern area in general. Internationalization is a top priority for SDA Bocconi and the launching of new and challenging International Executive Programs and research in partnership with Gruppo San Donato reflects our mission - to contribute to the development of individuals and organizations by creating and disseminating innovative managerial knowledge”.

The partnership will be launched on March 15th in Dubai.
