The Indian Institute of Management Kashipur (IIM Kashipur) and Max Healthcare Ltd have forged a partnership aimed at introducing a postgraduate diploma programme in Hospital Management. A formal agreement between the two entities has solidified this initiative, which intends to meet the growing need for well-trained personnel within the healthcare sector.

This postgraduate diploma program, centered around hospital management, spans nine months in duration and is tailored exclusively for executives and managers seeking to cultivate and enrich their competencies in hospital operations, as outlined in an official statement by IIM Kashipur. Additionally, both organisations have committed to engaging in joint research, seminars and other academic collaborations as part of their collaborative agreement.

Professor Kunal Ganguly, Dean (Development) at IIM Kashipur, noted that this is the inaugural program of its kind. He added that the postgraduate diploma course is slated for launch by year-end, with faculty members from both IIM Kashipur and Max Healthcare conducting classes. Students pursuing this course will also have the opportunity to gain practical experience through hands-on training at Max Hospitals.

The IIM Kashipur and Max Healthcare PG diploma program will employ a blended learning approach, featuring live lectures delivered by IIM Kashipur faculty, insights from senior management at Max Healthcare and cutting-edge e-learning content. Umesh Gupta, Senior Director-HR and Chief People Officer at Max Healthcare Ltd, emphasised that this unique amalgamation of knowledge, digital resources and practical experience obtained through immersion at Max Healthcare equips participants with a comprehensive skill set.

Citing data from the Economic Survey of 2022-23, IIM Kashipur underscored that India’s healthcare spending as a percentage of GDP is anticipated to increase from 2.2 per cent in FY22 to 2.1 per cent in FY23, up from 1.6 per cent in FY21.

Furthermore, the global healthcare market is projected to expand by 2030. Given the healthcare industry’s growth and the escalating demand for adept operations managers in hospitals, this blended programme is poised to address the surging demand for a skilled workforce in the field, as stated by the institute.
