The Master of Hospital Administration programme (MHA-Hospital) aims to develop a cadre of professional managers for the rapidly growing hospital sector. As hospitals become an increasingly complex technical environment employing people with widely divergent skills, the need to manage them efficiently without any compromise to the humane and caring environment that the sick need, brings forth the need for a new type of health professional- the hospital manager. The MHA (Hospital) programme prepares students for leadership roles in the hospital sector through training in planning, operational and project management of hospitals including orientation in the managerial aspects of clinical and support services. The programme also imparts training in managing financial, material and information systems in hospital settings and builds the perspectives, attitudes and skills needed for managing people. The MHA (Hospital) Degree is designed to be completed in 4 semesters spanning two years; but has a provision to complete over a maximum period of 5 years from the date of registration.


Students of the MHA (Hospital) programme find jobs to manage a variety of specialised services in hospitals, both in the private and in government sectors. Their job description includes managing various departments of large hospitals as well as planning and designing new services and new hospitals. In the past, students have found employment in leading corporate- and trust-run hospitals all over the country. Of late, there are also job opportunities arising in hospital consultancy firms, health care IT industry, and the health insurance sector.
