 “Thanks to modern healthcare we're living longer, but as a result we are placing an ever-increasing strain on our health services. Today's healthcare system isn't sustainable unless we find smarter ways to make healthcare more efficient. To address this challenge I work with digital systems that automate much of what clinicians do, and enable patients to manage their own health. I believe that the Executive MBA will give me tools to further accelerate the digitalization of healthcare, and ensure we have a sustainable healthcare solution for the future., says Jonathan Ilicki.

The jury has consisted of Carl Johan Bonnier, Chairman Albert Bonnier AB; Jonas Jonsson, Editor in Chief, Dagens Industri; Mattias Säker, Co-founder Keystone Education Group; Frida Korneliusson, CEO AB SLL Internfinans and alumna of the Executive MBA program, and Karin Wiström, Director SSE MBA, Stockholm School of Economics.
