What they say about MIHMEP

I am a former scientist and I spent my last four years at the Institute Curie, in Paris. There, I performed a PhD in biomedical science and drug development, within the frame of multidisciplinary European project.
Despite my early academic successes, I soon realized that my scientific achievements alone would have been insufficient to secure what I was aiming for, a managerial position in the pharmaceutical business. Precisely, I am convinced that key profiles within the pharmaceutical firms must have a strong scientific background as well as a managerial and business acumen.
On this basis, I decided to attend MIHMEP. The completion of MIHMEP represents an essential step for my next career path, laying the groundwork for a successful future managerial profile within the pharmaceutical and health sector.

For me MIHMEP represents a turning point in my educational path. I come from a legal background and I have always been fascinated by the world of healthcare with all its peculiarities and complexities requiring understanding and management. This program is really providing me with the opportunity to dive deep into this beautiful world with a strong, precise, and oriented focus on key issues in healthcare and a very well-organized specialization path. This very high degree of specialization in economics and management for healthcare is definitely the right bridge between education and a career in the healthcare world. I am personally pursuing a double degree specialization path in Healthcare Management and Pharmaceuticals & Medical Technologies and I am experiencing so many interesting learning opportunities. The subjects that I study cover a wide range of topics and are also very complementary. Moreover, it is incredible how I am now familiar and in my comfort zone when dealing with issues and topics that I would have never thought of dealing with some years ago when I was in a totally different career world. This Master and its enriching challenges made me understand that we only face the limits that we place for ourselves, and we have the infinite range of wonderful opportunities that we choose to welcome in our life. This is a very fulfilling experience, MIHMEPis a great program and it is one of the best of its kind worldwide. The professors have diverse backgrounds, were trained in the best academic institutions from all over the world and are great inspirational professionals. Finally, the networking opportunities of the program are beyond what one could imagine; this is a great opportunity to meet people, to get to know them and to build a network of contacts that will last for many years to come.
