Healthcare Management and Leadership

“GLS is an online training program designed to structure and broaden knowledge about the healthcare sector. The program combines analytical rigor with practical relevance, a focus on action with a culture of decision making, social responsibility with a humanistic dimension. The 100% online sessions are composed of conference-conferences with experts in their respective fields and discussion of case studies.
The GLS is intended for professionals who do not live or work in Portugal.”

    A reference in health management

    In 2004, AESE Business School initiated the Senior Management Program for Healthcare Institutions (PADIS).

    Aimed at Senior Healthcare Executives, PADIS will have its 35th and 36th editions in 2020, in Lisbon and Porto, respectively.

    Today, it already has more than 900 alumni, among which stand out several Presidents and Directors of Public Companies in the sphere of the Ministry of Health, Hospital Centers, Regional Health Administrations, as well as several private companies in the health sector.

    The school maintains a close relationship with the healthcare alumni community through face-to-face and online continuity sessions on management and leadership, finance, operations, innovation and other relevant healthcare topics, in partnership with several Scientific Societies and pharmaceutical companies.

    In 2020, the online program – Hospital Business Enhancement – began, aimed at pharmaceutical and medical device company managers

      Case method

      Leading can only be learned… by leading.

      By placing participants face to face with real business conflicts, managers are called upon to assume the role of decision-makers in circumstances similar to their day-to-day lives in organizations. The cases pose challenges that require effective responses in the face of rigorous analysis of limited or even insufficient information, in ambiguous or complex political-economic contexts. Individual diagnosis and decisions are negotiated with experienced, talented, and ambitious colleagues.

      Today, the Case Method stands out as a sophisticated means of transforming the potential talent of the participants into powerful decision-making capabilities. AESE remains at the forefront of Case Method education in Portugal.

      Phases of the Case Method

      • Individual case studies are followed by a group discussion.
      • Learning Teams help prepare cases in a collaborative environment, creating the opportunity to put ideas to the test.
      • The classrooms at headquarters were specially designed with teaching with the Case Method in mind.
