MBA in Hospital Management: Be The Next Gen Professional


MBA in Hospital Management or Hospital Administration teaches you to coordinate and streamline the entire process of managing hospitals and healthcare services.

That easy? No.

Let’s get some facts right.

– The Healthcare Management & Clinical Research industries need more than 70,000 skilled professionals this year.

Every year this figure escalates.

Owing to limited awareness about careers in this segment of the healthcare industry, students do not prefer to opt for it.

This academic discipline also promises decent starting packages of Rs 4.0 Lac to Rs 7.0 Lac per year after an MBA in Hospital Management.

To do an MBA in Hosp. Mgmt., 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.

  • You may have read elsewhere that some colleges accept any bachelor’s degree for MBA in hospital management with a CAT/ XAT/ NMAT/ MAT/ CMAT etc. scores.
  • It is extremely crucial for students and their parents to understand that this is a highly specialized field of study and require candidates with at least an exposure to some branch of healthcare or life sciences at the bachelor’s level.


This is for greater good which is yet to be realized. Some colleges will always be into a heist, inviting candidates from any & all possible disciplines to apply.

MBA in Hospital or Healthcare Management?

Yes. Both hold good.

Different colleges may have different nomenclatures and program names but they are one and the same. Some colleges may call this as MBA in Hospital & Healthcare Management and some will typically call it MBA in Hospital Management. The course structures are equal.
