Jean de Kervasdoué has spent is professional life between Government, academia and business and two worlds : health (mostly) and agriculture.

I am presently a full time professor in Health economics and management and the "Conservatoire National des arts et métiers" in Paris, an old academic institution (1793), which exclusivly trains adults.

After an MBA and a Ph-D at Cornell (1973), I was simultaneously a researcher at the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris and working as chief economics adviser for the Paris University hospitals.

In 1981, I worked at the Prime Minister office and was in charge of agricultural policy for eight months and was then (november 1981) hired at the under-secretary in charge of the hospital system at ministry of health (a million emplyees - budget of 60 billions Euros).
I kept that position for five years, left government in 1986 and created a consulting firm in health which became the French leading consulting firm in that domain. In 1997 I came back to academia to occupy my present position.

I have published twelve books, hundred of articles.
