5 +Healthcare / 5 INDUSTRY INTRODUCTION From agricultural and environmental sectors to pharmaceutical and healthcare products and services, the industries and institutions emerging from the biotech revolution represent one of the largest and most steadily growing building blocks of the global economy. Their social impact is overwhelming, generating tremendous progress in quality of life, but also difficult issues that need responsible management based on solid ethical principles. Growing scientific complexity, tight regulatory control, long development times, unusual market structures and highly unpredictable outcomes are just some of the challenges facing healthcare management today. Ambitious professionals and executives who are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare or related industries such as the venture capital one, need an education that prepares them to master the industry-specific challenges in order to excel in their professional lives. The Specialized Module +Healthcare has been designed to equip students with the skills and techniques needed to address these challenges and pinpoint the growing number of opportunities now emerging in the biotech, pharma, and healthcare sectors. Ignacio Gafo Vice Dean Blended Programs
