EDHEC Business School is pleased to announce the launch of a new Executive MBA with specialisation in Healthcare Innovation & Technology in partnership with Université de Technologie de Compiègne (UTC).
The health sector makes an important contribution to the economy and has a major impact on our lives. It is also an ecosystem disrupted by ongoing demographic and health trends, digital development, new business models and technological innovations.
In this context, hospitals, clinics, biotech and medtech firms alongside health professionals and industry start-ups are seeking innovative managers and leaders with hybrid profiles who understand the complexity of the global ecosystem and possess an all-round vision of the market, from both business and technological standpoints.
EDHEC and UTC have chosen to combine their expertise to create an Executive MBA with a specialised track in healthcare innovation and technology. With its eight research laboratories and international outlook, UTC is one of the world’s top engineering schools. The EDHEC EMBA with specialisation in Healthcare Innovation & Technology (HIT) therefore combines UTC’s technological innovation with EDHEC’s academic excellence and entrepreneurial mindset. The creation of the programme is also a further manifestation of EDHEC’s ambitions in the field of skills hybridisation, located at the heart of the School’s “Impact Future Generations 2025” strategic plan.
Technical innovations, digital transformation, a rapidly changing landscape: a sector with sizeable issues and challenges
The curriculum primarily caters for experienced specialists, entrepreneurs and professionals who work (or have worked) in a medical, biotech or clinical environment and are who looking to take their career or expertise to the next level. The 16-month, part-time programme features two semesters of tuition at EDHEC Paris (Opera) where participants join the established and world-ranked EDHEC EMBA and one semester on UTC’s campuses. It is built around the acquisition of business fundamentals to gain a strong and confident leadership perspective. The curriculum includes 15 courses to develop a holistic overview of strategy, finance, marketing and doing business in a globalised and digitised world, a personalised coaching and leadership development programme, two global business trips, a hands-on consulting project and a health innovation and technology specialisation comprising four in-depth modules that enable participants to understand the main trends and transformations in the industry.“Digital transformation, development of new business models, organisational reinvention… the health industry faces major challenges and therefore needs leaders capable of anticipating and managing innovation and change. EDHEC has placed the hybridisation of knowledge at the heart of its new strategic plan “Impact Future Generations 2025”. This new programme is devised precisely to enable managers to acquire a solid skill set and the all-round interdisciplinary vision needed to succeed in a very fast-changing ecosystem”
explains Stéphane Canonne, Director of Executive Education & MBAs, EDHEC“Future health leaders must understand and master the major issues at stake in a theatre of operations largely determined by public policy and the real risks associated with the globalization of trade commerce. Organizations in the field must create the conditions enhancing agility and innovation and must rely, more than ever before, on technology. The Healthcare, Innovation and Technology curriculum path provides future leaders with the ability to imagine tomorrow's world in response to today's challenges and equips them with the tools to make it real”
