On this announcement, Dr. Prashant Mishra, Dean SBM, said, The phrase ‘healthcare industry’ has now expanded well beyond the realm of hospitals, incorporating various industries that supply goods and services important to curative, preventative, palliative, and rehabilitative care. Furthermore, as part of the healthcare business, the aggregate includes not just hospitals, clinical trials, medical devices, and equipment, but also telemedicine, health insurance, and medical tourism. With such a vast sector and reach, the Indian healthcare business is quickly establishing itself as a world leader in terms of the facilities and services it provides. This steady expansion of the sector creates a lot of job possibilities, both in the medical and non-medical fields of education. Our comprehensive course structure equips the participants with holistic development and prepares them for the future that lies ahead.”
Adding on to the announcement, Dr. Neha Sadhotra, Chairperson – MBA in Healthcare Management said, “Our goal is to enable the participants with industry-led healthcare education as well as the tools, platforms, and opportunities they need for an ecosystem of continuous learning to be future-ready leaders. The curriculum provides solid principles of healthcare entrepreneurship and a unified framework for creating and managing a patient-centric company, as well as the capacity to design and manage a successful healthcare delivery system. Over the next two years, the emphasis will be on providing participants with the necessary skills and knowledge to deal with digital disruption and to prepare them to deal with healthcare cost, quality, and access issues. We will teach participants how to use cutting-edge technology and analytical tools, as well as how to establish an entrepreneurial mindset, in order to have a successful journey.”
