The MIHMEP trains people that can make a difference in several areas – industrial and public sectors, international cooperation for developing countries, academia, and health organizations – and can substantially contribute to developing and shaping health care, thus improving patients’ access to the most irreplaceable necessity and inalienable right: health.
The MIHMEP combines management studies and practice with health economics, health policy, and public health, thus being the most comprehensive post-graduate program in health care. It’s 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.
The MIHMEP faculty is engaged in both research – carried out by CERGAS, 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 prominent worldwide experts – in the areas of health care 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.
With over 160 internship providers, 500 MIHMEP Alumni from 75 countries, in addition to the larger Bocconi Alumni Community, a faculty that includes over 50 members, plus visiting professors and guest speakers, and more than 60 professionals, the MIHMEP offers you a network as wide as it is specialized by putting you in direct contact with a large number of people working in the health sector at a global level.
Milano is the country’s health care and industrial hub, and for some it may be their next place of work once they have completed this program. But Milan will first and foremost be your campus, the place where you will be able to develop as a professional and as a person.
Furthermore, the Italian health system has been ranked 2nd by the World Healthcare Organization in its last worldwide appraisal of health systems, and 3rd most efficient (after Singapore and Hong Kong) by Bloomberg. Italy has the longest tradition of public health (created by the Romans), the oldest medical schools in the world (founded in the XIII century) and at the same time it is at the forefront in many fields such as the approach to mental health (de-hospitalized since the 70s), the first unmanned robotic surgery (in 2006), and many cutting-edge and pivotal new medical technologies. In addition Italy's Pharma, Medical Devices and Health Technology Industries are in the top 10 worldwide for volume and revenue. All this is an extraordinary laboratory of health policy and management. A place where you can do some considerable learning.
