Course overview

The Executive Health Innovation Management Programme (EHIMP) is a 12-day programme equipping senior healthcare leaders with the knowledge and skills to become change agents for healthcare innovation. The programme is jointly offered by Imperial College Business School and Copenhagen Business School, with contribution from IESE Business School.

Drawing on the latest thinking and real-life cases, EHIMP takes a practical approach by examining real-world challenges in healthcare from a general management perspective with the input of all participants and faculty.

The programme is delivered in three modules offering a mix of class sessions that explore the drivers of change in healthcare systems, key innovations and their implications, the challenges faced by value chain players and how to address them. The modules focus especially on the transformation of the health value chain, the role of digital transformation on healthcare innovation and the future healthcare landscape. 

In addition to the lectures and case studies, the programme includes an Executive Challenge component where participants bring their own relevant strategic or operational business challenge to the programme to receive personalised feedback from experienced peers and faculty.

Who should attend?

EHIMP attracts participants from all areas of the healthcare value chain and guides them towards greater innovative and entrepreneurial thinking to plan and deliver health services to meet emerging global needs. The programme is aimed at health leaders who can affect innovation in their workplaces, such as executives who are at or progressing towards C-suite level at a health provider, authority or insurer, or health professionals in leading roles.

The programme is also targeted at policymakers and senior leaders from health industries such as pharma, med-tech, and IT, who are influential in the sector's innovation. 

Learning objectives

  • Understand the emerging healthcare challenges, the complexities of health systems, how the health sector differs from other industries in relation to innovation needs and processes

  • Engage with and challenge participants from different business backgrounds and cultures across the health sector to gain new insight into your business or organisation

  • Identify opportunities for innovation and change within and across health sector organisations, including your own

  • Improve your innovative and entrepreneurial thinking
