Mission and learning objectives
Rapid changes in healthcare systems require new professionals with a deep understanding of health and healthcare issues and a wide spectrum of skills to promote and manage changes at the organizational and policy level.
MIHMEP intends to train a new cadre of professionals by providing an interdisciplinary and international program specifically focused on healthcare management and policy.
Through an itinerary comprising 9 months of classroom activities and a 3 month field project, participants will develop theoretical and practical skills in management, economic analysis, policy analysis and formulation, and epidemiology.

The challenging learning experience is enriched with intensive cultural exchange between participants coming from variety of backgrounds and from different parts of the world.
The program sees three terms when students take Core Courses and Specialization Courses, and ends with a fourth term, during which students participate in an internship within a health care organization, insitution or company in Italy or abroad.

Academic requirements Applicants should have an undergraduate university degree. The overall education career from primary school to completing the undergraduate degree must be of at least 15 years.
The School selects candidates from a wide range of academic, cultural and professional backgrounds. This diversity of approach, culture and experience enriches the learning process at both an individual and group level, and is one of the many elements making the MIHMEP Program truly unique.
Work experience 2-3 years post Bachelor work experience is an advantage but this is not an essential requirement. Therefore, applications from people with limited professional experience, but a strong interest in international healthcare management, will be taken into consideration.
English language The MIHMEP is taught entirely in English. Therefore, a good working knowledge of this language is mandatory. In view of this fact, all candidates are required to demonstrate proficiency in English, either by taking the test of English as a Foreign Language TOEFL, or any similar internationally recognized exam e.g. IELTS. This requirement does not apply to students whose native language is English or who have completed a University program or have significant work experience in an English-speaking country. It is suggested that candidates for the 2012/13 edition of the MIHMEP take the test at least 2 months before the final application deadline (July 31st 2012). At the test site, you will need to specify that you want your results sent directly to SDA Bocconi by indicating our School Code (0698). If you have already taken the test, the original results must be sent directly to the school. Any test results from before January 2006 are no longer valid.
GMAT/GRE GRE or GMAT tests are required as a part of the selection procedure. GMAT is an internationally recognized test in English that evaluates your quantitative, verbal, and analytical skills. Although there is no required minimum score for admission, a high score is expected.
Scholarships & Loans
Each year, there are several scholarships and tuition waivers offered by the School, as well as by companies, consultancy firms and other organizations. Tuition waivers and scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit to candidates with an outstanding profile. Admission to the Program is independent of the awarding of any scholarship or tuition waiver.
SDA Bocconi School of Management is making available 8 total/partial merit-based tuition waivers to 2012/13 MIHMEP candidates with an outstanding profile.
The number and assignment criteria of total or partial tuition waivers are defined and acknowledged by a selection Committee whose decision is final.
How to apply:
Important: upon completion of the MIHMEP application (online + hard copy supporting documents) may applicants be considered eligible for a tuition waiver.
Within 2-3 weeks of the above mentioned deadline the selection Committee will inform candidates of their results in writing via email.
The School assists candidates with their search for funding by supplying the necessary documentation and encourages them to explore all scholarships and loans possibilities in time.
Bocconi grants opportunities for low-interest loans available to admitted students, thanks to agreements with some partner banks.
You are normally required to take an English Proficiency Test if you come from a non-English speaking country.
