Never has the need for innovation in healthcare been greater than today. Around 85% of our graduates find relevant jobs within one year. The international focus of the programme enables graduates to pursue careers or positions in national as well as international organisations.
As managers, HPIM graduates use their knowledge of strategy, finances, quality management and logistics to help healthcare organisations across the globe to make sound decisions about the future course of the organisation. They work on many different organisational levels and in a wide range of sectors, also including the pharmaceutical industry and companies that produce medical devices.
Many HPIM graduates end up working as consultants. They work for consultancy agencies and provide clients in healthcare with expert advice on a wide range of healthcare innovation and management issues.
The HPIM graduates that work as policy advisors help organisations and governments chart out new health policies, or evaluate the effectivity of previous policy efforts. You could, for example, end up evaluating new healthcare innovations, or help write new healthcare policies.
Graduates also find jobs as care purchasers at insurance companies. They use their knowledge of healthcare economics to help insurance companies provide their customers with affordable, high-quality care by mediating between the insurance companies and the care providers.
In addition to obtaining all the preparation you need for a successful career in healthcare, the programme will also provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to become a researcher. Some HPIM graduates opt for an academic career and find work as a PhD candidate at a university, where they further specialise in a topic that has been discussed during the programme.
