Indian healthcare sector is growing at a rapid rate. It has been estimated that till 2020, the sector will grow at a cumulative average rate of 16.5\% and will touch US$ 280 billion (18,48,000 Crore Rs) revenue mark (KPMG India).In  terms  of  workforce  requirement,  it  is  estimated  that  the  sector  will  create  40  million  (4  Crore)  new  jobs (reported by AIMA in collaboration with BCG and CII). As of date, hospitals constitute the largest segment of the healthcare sector and account for approximately 70\% of its revenue. For managing the rapidly growing hospitals, the demand for professionally trained hospital administrators is increasing rapidly. The rapid growth in demand for  qualified  hospital  administrators  is  also  backed  by  existing  evidence  that  suggest  that  better  managed hospitals  generally  have  superior  clinical  outcomes,  higher  degree  of  patient  satisfaction,  and  have  higher likelihood of patients recommending the hospital to others.

In  India,  there  is  severe  paucity  of  professionally  trained  hospital  administrators.  Limited  number  of  academic institutes   are   focused   on   producing   trained   hospital   administrators,   while,   the   demand   for   qualified administrators is increasing rapidly. As a result, in many hospitals, senior practicing doctors are also performing the role of administrator. However, it places a significant demand on the time of these doctors, making it difficult for  them  to  devote  adequate  time  to  both  clinical  and  administrative  work.  As  a  result,  either  clinical  or administrative work gets neglected, ultimately resulting in poor quality of care and/or poor patient satisfaction. Lack of trained administrators also result in inadequate second line of leadership in many hospitals and pose a serious  challenge  to  the  sustainability  of  healthcare  initiatives  taken  by  the  hospitals.  Hence,  professionally qualified hospital administrators not only have a very good career prospects but also are pivotal to the growth of hospitals in India. They will have self-satisfaction of serving the suffering people in time of need in the hospitals.
MHA  programme  offered  by  the    IIPHG  is  a  two  year,  full-time  programme.  The programme  is  designed  to develop professionally trained administrators who can play an effective managerial role and provide leadership in public/private   hospitals   and   healthcare institutions.   For   achieving   its   intended   objective,   the   programme curriculum   is   structured   on   a   multi-disciplinary   perspectives   including   general   management   and   hospital management theories and practices.

collaborative learning, group discussions, assignments, hands-on training, internship, and dissertation in hospitals.
