The executive education division of The Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) has joined Wharton’s Aresty Institute of Executive Education. The reorganization allows the University of Pennsylvania to better serve leaders in health care management.

The programs offered by LDI resides in Wharton Executive Education. Both Wharton Executive Education and LDI served clients in the health care industry independently, and collaborated in the past by sharing faculty and other resources. This reorganization formalizes the relationship by clustering the University's health care executive education expertise within one organization. LDI will continue to be the nexus of the University's health services research and health policy expertise.
