The Academy of Healthcare Management is the initiative with which SDA Bocconi supported ENI to promote the managerial skills of a selected group of healthcare public managers from Libya. For Eni, this is a pilot project, created with the aim of contributing to the development and growth of the foreign communities in which it operates and implementing Corporate Social Responsibility actions.

“The project was inspired by those managerial experiences and skills that have played a crucial role in the health and economic performance of Italian healthcare, according to Bloomberg and WHO rankings,” said Valeria Tozzi, Program Director.

The project started in 2018 when ENI, in collaboration with the National Oil Corporation and the University of Benghazi, identified the main organizational and management needs of Libyan public health facilities. Then, with the support of SDA Bocconi, the Academy of Healthcare Management was created as a training program to support public managers working in healthcare facilities in southern and eastern Libya. The project was born as a spin-off of an earlier collaboration between SDA Bocconi and the University of Benghazi, aimed at strengthening the skills of Benghazi University trainers responsible for training healthcare professionals at the local level.

“One of the most important factors in achieving success is choosing the right partnerships. The collaboration between ENI, the Libyan National Oil Corporation, SDA Bocconi and the University of Benghazi has produced excellent results to design and launch the Global Health Project in Libya,” remarked Ali A. Zagou, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Economics at the University of Benghazi.

At the heart of the collaboration is a very specific mission: to spread knowledge within the communities where ENI operates, to enable the Libyan health system to acquire innovative management skills and techniques and begin a virtuous path of change and progress.

The program ranged from systemic topics of health policy and global health to more organizational topics of clinical governance, budgeting, leadership, and risk and crisis management. The scheduled in-person classes in Milan have recently concluded. The program continues at a distance to accompany participants in building change and innovation projects for their local communities.

The success that the Academy of Healthcare Management is having – which is also the result of the constant comparison with ENI and the University of Benghazi – is a significant precedent for the school because it paves the way for new, future collaborations in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility and in support of the activities of companies on the ground, in a perspective that is always faithful to the principles of knowledge sharing, development and innovation.

“I express the deepest satisfaction,” says Filippo Uberti, ENI’s Head of Health, “in having found, as ENI alongside NOC, the most appropriate answers to the management training needs of Libyan colleagues working in the country’s public and private hospitals. With our support, the University of Benghazi and SDA Bocconi have developed a course for medical management figures in healthcare that, already judging from the enthusiasm of the participants, will leverage more qualitative leaps in the historical cooperation between ENI, NOC and the health system of Libya after the experiences of the war and the pandemic.”
