Structure & Calendar

The HMP is divided into three one-week modules held over three months on IESE's Madrid and Barcelona campuses. At the end of the program, you receive a diploma -a valued credential in the corporate world- certifying that you have successfully completed the HMP.

Module 1 - THE STEPPING STONES
Madrid
Module 2 - FACING CHANGE
Munich
Module 3 - GETTING THINGS DONE
Madrid
This module covers the economic environment of healthcare, including international trends and incentives for patients and providers. Other topics include methods and tools to support accounting, control, and decision analysis; performance management and motivation.In the second week, you begin to examine existing health-care models and study topics such as advanced accounting and control concepts, team decision-making, change leadership, information technology, and entrepreneurship.The final module continues the review of healthcare models, and covers leadership management, negotiation, and service delivery design.
  • Before Each Module. A package with pre-readings will arrive one month before the start of each residential week to give you time to prepare.

  • During Modules. Expect to be fully occupied with classes, study, and organized social activities during the three full-time weeks. This means that you should try to leave work responsibilities at the office. It is normal, on average, to spend eight hours a day at IESE Business School divided between classes and small teamwork, attending four to five sessions a day. The rule of thumb is that each class or case study requires two hours' advance preparation time.
  • Between Modules. When not on IESE's campus, you will be preparing for the next residential week and carrying out self-assessment projects. You also have the option of receiving coaching from IESE Business School faculty.


Social Activities

Informal activities during the program provide ample opportunities for social contact with other participants, faculty and staff. The program's structure is specifically designed to promote learning, networking and the creation of long-term relationships.
