Masters in Hospital Administration



Across the globe, there is an increasing focus on quality, optimisation, improved productivity, and sustainability in hospital operations. The vital administrative functions of a hospital, including accounts, human resource management, quality, logistics, and supply chain, public relations, marketing and waste management are increasingly being managed by professional healthcare managers to achieve effectiveness and efficiency in day-to-day operations.

In India, the current Hospital Bed to Patient ratio is under 1:1000, way below the global ratio of 3:1000. There are new hospitals emerging in second and third tier cities and greater availability of super specialty health care and health insurance. Income levels are rising, there is an ageing population and growing health awareness, and increasing medical tourism in the country. The healthcare sector is growing at an explosive pace, estimated to be a compound annual growth rate of 15% by the Brand Equity Foundation of India in their March 2014 report. 

Coupled with increasing complexities and advances, healthcare delivery has created a significant need for professionally trained health care managers.
