This academic discipline also promises decent starting salary packages of Rs 4.0 Lac to Rs 7.0 Lac pa after an MBA in Hospital Management.
Typically, top Indian colleges (low-budget) require specific candidates like life-science graduates, bachelors in hospital administration (BHA), doctors/ nurses (MBBS, BDS, BHMS, BPT, BAMS, BSMS or B Sc Nursing), B. Pharm or M. Pharma.
Such renowned colleges have industry tie-ups with esteemed healthcare facilities like Apollo, Columbia Asia, Fortis, Medanta, Max Healthcare and many more. However, there is only a handful of students who opt for these colleges and most others either do not wish to build a career in this field or go for other Hospital Management colleges where admission criteria are more lenient.
