Face-to-face +Healthcare Management kicks off with a short residential period in Boston. To ensure a 360º view of the biotech industry, students visit the most relevant companies in the sector, where they get to interact and network with top executives, and attend a series of conferences on the latest challenges and opportunities in the industry.
To strengthen the link with the real world, the first face-to-face period will be held in Boston, amid the world’s largest density of biotech companies. Boston is home to a wealth of prestigious universities and advanced research centers with a long history in the creation of business from science and technology, and to international headquarters of many of the sector’s leading companies.
Online interactive learning occurs between each face-to-face period, ensuring continued learning and connection between classmates for the duration of the program. Students can study from anywhere in the world and follow the program regardless of their geographic location, travel schedules and work commitments, and can implement new knowledge and skills immediately in their everyday workplace.

For over a decade, IE has been investing and adapting its platform to efficient, effective online learning. This platform hosts all program materials and discussion forums, and is open 24/7, allowing students to interact at the time that best fits their schedule.

- Individual preparation: reading cases, chapters, technical notes, etc.
- Group discussion and assignment: completion of the group assignment as indicated by the professor.
- Class forum: open class debate where every intervention is published in written form, promoting maximum reflection and analysis among all students prior to posting their contributions to the discussion forums.
