Israel has long been at the forefront of innovation in medicine, developing groundbreaking, often live-saving, treatments for a range of conditions, from cancer to diabetes, Parkinson’s disease to hernias. Med-Tech Innovation is offered at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The urgency and huge scale of the pandemic demanded not only innovation and top-quality research; effective management was required to streamline results, carry out proper clinical trials, and get products to the market as soon as possible.
The ability of the Israeli medical system to develop and roll out such treatments in a timely way is thanks to innovative technologies, a data-driven strategy and, perhaps above all, excellent medical management.
The International Med-Tech Innovation MBA program is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to successfully lead and manage a med-tech-oriented company. Taught by international experts and industry leaders, our Med-Tech MBA is the first University degree of its kind in Israel. Integrating academic, industrial and business knowledge into an innovative, top-notch curriculum, the program covers topics such as entrepreneurship, finance, digital health, healthcare IT, intellectual property, bio-design, quality assurance and regulatory compliance. Theoretical studies are enhanced by practical components including internships with leading biomedical professionals, networking opportunities with internationally renowned experts, and exposure to cutting-edge technologies emerging from Israel’s hospital system. Participants benefit tremendously from interaction with top international experts who share their knowledge and experience in managing biomedical research, and gain practical experience by applying theoretical concepts to real-life business challenges.
