Advanced Management Programme on Health Innovation


Learn and network with tomorrow’s leading organisations on a programme taught by first class business schools in four European countries and supported by the EIT Health network.

Demographic change is one of the main challenges European societies are facing today, with increasing pressure on health and social care costs at a time of constrained financial resources. Tackling this requires of exceptional leaders who possess the values, the vision and the ideas to drive exceptional health innovation.

The Advanced Management Program in Health Innovation Management (AMP-HIM) will be delivered by Imperial College Business School, IESE Business School and Copenhagen Business Schools. The program allows seasoned professionals to engage in intense debate with top-tier colleagues and faculty members on the key issues affecting healthcare innovation and delivery today. By challenging each other, and sharing their knowledge and experience, participants gain new management insights and come away with stronger decision-making and implementation skills.

The experience is built on active learning methodologies. The case method will take your thinking to the next level, and interaction with our faculty members and peer-to-peer synergies will give you the broader global perspective, insights and framework you need to shape your organization’s future and drive its growth.

The AMP-HIM takes a practical approach by examining real-world challenges in healthcare from a general management perspective with the full support of your peers and faculty.

Who should attend?

To change healthcare we must change how their leaders manage innovation, define strategies, take decisions and implement them. The program is aimed at those leaders that can make this change happen, in particular, health sector senior executives (health providers, health professionals in leading roles, health authorities, health insurances) who hold CEO positions or those one or two levels from the CEO, with potential for career development in the organization and the industry. The program is also targeted at policy makers and senior leaders from health industries (pharma, med tech, IT, etc.) who understand their important role as necessary agents in the innovation of the sector.


  • Understand, practice and implement game changing strategies
  • Innovate within your organisation through an innovation challenge
  • Develop new business models in mature organisations
  • Get key insights into digital transformation opportunities

Programme content

The four learning modules, each combining three days of face-to-face discussions with online pre and post module activities, address important knowledge, skills and attitudes developments, both from the strategic and the operational levels, including:

Understanding the healthcare challenges. In this module we will present a macro level framework to help us understand the complexities of healthcare systems, the specifics of the health sector and how it differs from other industries in relation to innovation needs and process, the roles played by different stakeholders (providers, insurance entities, patients and patient associations, pharma and medical equipment companies, etc.) and how they are evolving. We will consider the trends that are defining the healthcare institutions of the future and what this might mean for companies, healthcare providers and other organizations in the sector.

Leading innovation and change, improving healthcare performance. This module will focus on the development of an innovation strategy for the organization, understanding the opportunities for innovation and change within and across the organizations. We will discuss how to develop leadership competencies and how different leadership styles are suited for healthcare innovation. We will also explore what are the levers to improve the performance of healthcare, at the macro, meso and micro levels, and will present a model for operational excellence in healthcare organizations.

Transforming and developing new services. This module will focus on the development of new business models in healthcare, analyzing the reasons for their success or failure. Different types of innovations (disruptive, frugal) will be presented, and we will also discuss how to develop a digital mindset for healthcare that could drive the digital transformation.

Getting things done, the art of implementation. In this module we will focus on how to get things done, how to move from strategy to implementation, how to build and lead high performance collaborative teams. We will also review the latest ideas in project management for strategy implementation and how to ensure the sustainability of innovation in healthcare organizations.

Cross module activities

The program will also include some activities that will run across modules, such as the Executive Challenge and the development of a plan for the launching of a new service.
