MILI Certificate Program

The Carlson School's Medical Industry Leadership Institute (MILI) draws on the diverse expertise of University of Minnesota researchers working on the scientific, technical, legal, ethical, and entrepreneurial opportunities and problems in the global healthcare industry. MILI leverages Minnesota's concentration of top-tier companies to create the next generation of business leaders and policy makers in the medical field.

MILI and Executive Education offer professionals the chance to hone their skillset, whether considering a shift in career concentration or simply keeping abreast of this dynamic, changing field. The curriculum is tailored for functional learning across areas. Students learn in intensive, collaborative environments, either taking on the challenge of earning a MILI Certificate or directing their study through one of a suite of signature courses. Executive Education participants can expect to get a sense of the scope and shape of the global healthcare landscape; engage in detailed analysis of specific topics, firms, and industry sectors; and work alongside peers, colleagues, and world-class academics in experiential learning projects with firms around the world.
