What they say about MIHMEP

Adding the MIHMEP degree to my graduate school plan is the best decision I could ever take for myself, allowing me to build on prior experience and pursue my passion for healthcare innovation, acquiring broader perspectives and developing distinctive in-depth expertise to respond to the challenging issues facing the industry.

MIHMEP is such an amazing and enriching experience. It is a truly international program which is reflected in our multicultural class. MIHMEP is so diverse and unique that it is a pleasure to come to class everyday, knowing that everything we learn today will help us to make a difference in the future.

I have learned so much about interesting issues in healthcare, not just sitting in lectures and reading, but also interacting and working in groups with my colleagues. With each new assignment, I was able to positively apply what I was learning in class everyday. Having the chance to hear what speakers and professors think about issues from their practical experiences and discuss these issues and share experiences with other MIHMEP students is an incredible opportunity.

It is a very challenging and demanding master but completely worth the effort.

I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to take the next step in his/her career and become a leader in healthcare.

"A willingness to advance my theoretical knowledge of management in the healthcare sector is the reason I applied for MIHMEP. After acquiring my diploma in pharmaceutical science and running my family business for two years, I decided I had to take the next step in my career. MIHMEP was the best choice for me since it represents the most comprehensive, well structured masters program in healthcare management and the only one offering students the chance to select among three specializations; Global Health & Development, Health Care Management and Pharmaceutical & Medical Technology".
