Entirely taught in English, the Postgraduate Course in Entrepreneurship Across Health at UPF Barcelona School of Management covers the top three areas driving health technologies businesses nowadays: biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, and digital health. Health technologies are becoming one of the most important business sectors driving wellness and economy worldwide. This means that the sector needs entrepreneurs and professionals who are able to understand the science and engineering of innovative technologies and, at the same time, understand their potential to improve health and its commercial potential.
The new era of healthcare professionals will have to face a continuously evolving environment where engineering, digital and molecular medicine merge to offer clinical solutions to highly informed patients. The Postgraduate Course in Entrepreneurship Across Health will address challenges in the interspace of big data, artificial intelligence, traditional pharma, robotics or mobile health with the objective of preparing a new generation of talent to face this exciting sector.
"In a recently published New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) Catalyst Insights Report, 63% of respondents say new entrants into health IT are more likely to come from focused start-ups rather than traditional health care organizations, consumer industries or business to business industries. Survey respondents also expect start-ups to lead innovation for hospitals and health systems (54%) and primary care (65%)"
