MIHMEP trains people on making a difference in several areas – industrial and public sectors, international organizations, private foundations and non-governmental organizations involved in global health and development issues, academia, and health organizations – and can substantially contribute to developing and shaping healthcare, thus improving patients’ access to healthcare.

2. The most complete training

MIHMEP combines management studies and practice with health economics, health policy, and public health, thus being the most comprehensive post-graduate program in healthcare.

3. A specialized approach together with a global vision

MIHMEP is the only Master that mixes the private (business) and public views of healthcare by offering both general overviews and in-depth specializations in different sectors: Global Health & Development; Health Care Management; Pharmaceutical & Medical Technology.

4. A Challenging Program to Build a Solid Career

The program consists of 3 terms that provide core courses and specialization courses, plus a fourth term, during which you will participate in an internship within a healthcare organization, public institution, or private company in Italy or abroad.

5. Meet the Experts

Experts from healthcare organizations, industry, regulatory authorities, international organizations, non-governmental organizations and consulting companies share their professional experience with MIHMEP students and give them a flavour of what their future work will be. This is also a great opportunity for students to strengthen their network.

The Faculty is engaged in both research – carried out by the Center for Research on Health and Social Care Management at Università Bocconi – and management training – through the executive and customized programs designed and performed by SDA Bocconi School of Management for healthcare institutions, pharmaceutical companies, and many other organizations. Twelve worldwide experts – in the areas of healthcare management, economics, policy, governance, and global health – make up the Scientific Board, which provides the MIHMEP with scientific guidelines and contributions to its scientific curricula.

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.

Isabella Sormani - Italian/Swiss
MIHMEP 2015

My passion for healthcare began during my experience managing the daily operations of a private practice serving a largely non-English speaking and dual-eligible patient population. The complexities involved in coordinating care for these vulnerable patients, along with the challenges facing physicians and patients with the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act sparked my interest in healthcare delivery. This curiosity motivated me to further my career by enrolling in MIHMEP at the SDA Bocconi School of Management; which has been one of the most fulfilling decisions of both my personal and professional life. The structure of MIHMEP allowed me to gain complete insight into all sectors of the healthcare industry, broadening my horizons, while providing me with the opportunity to specialize in one particular field during the third term; I chose Healthcare Management.

My section’s international student body, representing over 15 different countries, led to thought-provoking debates and discussions around devising creative solutions to current healthcare challenges at both a local and global level. Working with my colleagues, each with their own diverse perspectives and experience, on case-based projects helped me to further develop the soft skills I needed to excel as a leader in the healthcare industry and successfully manage multidisciplinary teams.

MIHMEP also provided the opportunity to attend seminars given by industry leaders from top hospitals, think tanks, and global health organizations worldwide. These experiences made me aware of the vast number of current healthcare challenges and ways I could make an impact. These opportunities paired with an effective blend of core courses, case-based learning, and quantitative reasoning makes MIHMEP unique to other Healthcare Masters programs.

I am now based in Boston, Massachusetts working in Ambulatory Operations at Tufts Medical Center, with a focus in process improvement and project management.
