Tel Aviv, one of the cities you'll visit during the program

The pace of change in healthcare and the life sciences is accelerating. At the Rotman School, we’re evolving our program to prepare leaders to drive the healthcare and the life sciences changes of tomorrow.

New for the incoming fall class of 2023, we will be adding Tel Aviv, Israel as a stop on our global quest to weave in the latest in thought leadership, practical education and hands-on experience into theRotman Global Executive MBA for Healthcare and the Life Sciences program.

It is simply a fact that you have to search far and wide for inspirational and innovative solutions to some of the problems that you have in your own backyard.

An international perspective

Israel has been called the world’s “start up nation”, founding more tech companies per capita than any other nation - especially true in healthcare and life sciences. This module includes planned visits to leading med-tech and digital firms, and visits with government, health system leaders, and payors to understand how Israel integrates care so effectively. 

Toronto, the home of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto is an innovation and entrepreneurship hub, ranked as one of the world’s top start-up ecosystems. The San Francisco Bay Area is a hub of entrepreneurial activity and base for many established healthcare and life sciences firms. Singapore offers important insights as an innovative regional and global hub for healthcare services and life sciences commerce. London offers the opportunity to explore the UK's dynamic universal healthcare system - the world's first - as well as the advanced life sciences industries in the region.

The program helps build the expertise needed to understand and shape healthcare systems around the world as demands for innovation, access and affordability for healthcare continue to evolve.

“Not only will you apply best practices from various healthcare systems and global life sciences companies, you will expand your leadership potential in order to improve healthcare from within,” says Nate Myers, GEMBA-HLS ’20 student and Director, Strategy & Business Planning at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare.

“In addition to world-class Rotman faculty, the breadth of expertise in the GEMBA-HLS students delivers unparalleled peer-to-peer real-world learning,” added Kathryn Tinckam, GEMBA-HLS ’20 student, Director, HLA Laboratory, Director, Quality & Innovation at UHN Transplant Program.

The program curriculum is designed such that students are able to examine what’s possible ‘at home’ – wherever home is – by learning from other systems and organizations. Site visits and networking events introduces students to senior executives who are experts in doing business in each of the regions visited as part of the program. The class will be exposed to the opportunities and challenges in areas of healthcare and the life sciences, globally, and the ideas that are radically changing the way healthcare is delivered.

With the exciting addition of Israel as a location of learning in the Global Executive MBA for Healthcare and the Life Sciences, students can expect to gain an even more comprehensive understanding of how they can make an impact on their areas of expertise and to accelerate careers in a world of unprecedented opportunity.
