Symbiosis Institute of Health Sciences :MBA (HHC)

Objective: To develop and groom top class management professionals with in-depth knowledge and competencies suited to the various organizations in the healthcare field, globally.

The two year, full time Master degree in Hospital & Healthcare Management focuses on equipping students with the knowledge and skills required for the management of healthcare organizations, be it hospitals, nursing homes, pharmaceutical/ IT/ Insurance organizations or NGOs and others as may evolve. The programme aims at adopting a synergistic blend of academic knowledge and practical intricacies of the field to create professionals adept at identifying practical problems and using time tested and emerging managerial techniques to arrive at appropriate solutions.

Market Need & Career Potential: The healthcare sector in India is in the middle of a high growth phase both in terms of volume and sophistication with corporatisation acting as one of the major drivers of this sector. The public healthcare sector has also been expanding with the growing healthcare needs of the population in line with the policies of the government. The healthcare sector also has growing participation by new stake holders such as the IT & Insurance sectors who in themselves are rapidly growing and expanding thereby generating higher demands for trained healthcare administrators at all levels. The advent of medical tourism and functions such as Medical BPOs/ KPOs has further expanded the vistas for gainful utilization of such trained professionals. All this, as also the spurt in the number of new healthcare projects in the last couple of years has fuelled the demand for young graduates specializing in hospital and healthcare management.

With the medical industry becoming increasingly competitive and growing rapidly, the need for managing the healthcare sector professionally has become even more acute. Hospital & Healthcare management comprises a number of complex operations with a considerable scope for ambiguity. A thorough understanding of these complex operations is essential for effective and efficient policy making and optimal resource utilisation. A structured programme addressing issues such as application of basic management tools to finance, marketing, production, human resources etc. is the need of the hour.

Teaching Methodology: The two year, full time, on-campus MBA (HHC) programme is formatted such that apart from the classroom didactic lectures, students spend a substantial amount of their learning time in various healthcare delivery related set-ups where they are exposed to actual hands on practical training. During the period of study, the student will be required to complete a number of case studies as also complete a thesis pertaining to hospital/healthcare management under the supervision of a guide. The students will participate actively in a number of seminars, workshops and presentations throughout the duration of the programme which will help in developing self confidence and the ability to realize their full potential. The programme content is further enriched by eminent guest faculty, innovative teaching methods and sessions which contribute to all round personality development in addition to academic excellence and practical competencies.
