The burgeoning scale of hospital dynamics calls for individuals who can handle hospital administration with an in-depth knowledge about the various segments in healthcare.

The healthcare sector also calls for a special set of managerial skills since hospital care requires team work wherein critical and time-bound operations get performed routinely in a challenging and multi-tasking environment.

This has created a need for a pool of specially-trained managers to take care of hospital administration. Sensing this need, Sankara Nethralaya Academy (TSNA), Chennai has launched a two-year, full-time MBA in Hospital and Health System Management. This MBA programme is affiliated to the Tamil Nadu Dr M G R Medical University, Chennai, and offered in association with the Gemba School of HR, Chennai.
