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.
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.
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.

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.
Public colloquium - October 2013
This is an introductory one-week course, which has two main objectives:
- to orient incoming students to the MIHMEP program and to living in Milan;
- to provide students with practice in public speaking, team building and professional writing through some interactive workshops.
Core courses - Term 1 - October 2013 /April 2014
· Health care systems & policy
· Health Economics
· Foundations of Management · Quantitative Methods
Core courses - Term 2
· Financial Accounting
· Economic Evaluation of Health Care Programs
· Issues in Public Health
Specializations - April - May/June 2014
· Global health & Development
· Health Care Management
· Pharmaceutical & Medical Technology
Third Term April - May 2013
At MIHMEP 14 (academic year 2012-2013) students will be expected to choose 1 among 3 Specializations. There will be a total number of 120 hours of Specialization courses and seminars to be taken by every MIHMEP student in the 3rd term (certain courses may also be delivered in the 2nd term). Choosing a Specialization is mandatory.
The Specializations in the academic year 2012-2013 are the following:
* Global Health & Development
* Health Care Management
* Pharmaceutical & Medical Technology
In addition to the chosen Specialization, to receive the MIHMEP Diploma students have to choose 2 more courses (minimum 48 hours) from the offer of the other MIHMEP Specializations. The choice of these additional courses can be based on the individual's interests and future career expectations, adding value to the Specialization courses by learning new subjects.
After the completion of MIHMEP, students will be awarded the MIHMEP Diploma and a separate certificate reporting the Specialization undertaken. It could be used on the market to reinforce one's ability to be selected for a position should one need to use it as a proof of additional/specific qualification. However the MIHMEP diploma itself would not prevent a student from applying for a position and receiving a job not related to a chosen Specialization. Evaluation
Students’ performance in each course will be evaluated on the basis of final exam, group work and class participation.
Internship – From June 2014
During the fourth term, students participate in an internship within a healthcare organization or a company in Italy or abroad. The projects are carried out over a period of 12 weeks and require full-time commitment. During the internship, students are supervised by two tutors: one from the host organization and the other from the MIHMEP Faculty. Near the end of the first term, the Internship Day is organized in order for MIHMEP students to meet field project providers and to present internship options.
Internships may be performed in pharmaceutical/medical device companies, national and regional health authorities, hospitals, health insurance organizations, NGOs, supranational organizations, research centres and consulting companies. All represent potential employing organizations for MIHMEP students. At the end of the program, students will receive advice concerning job placement and the best job options available both in Italy and abroad. Evaluation At the end of the experience the students prepare a report describing and discussing the results of their projects.
