IIM Kashipur, the Indian management institute, hosted an event at its campus on Monday during which a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between IIM Kashipur and healthcare organisation Max Healthcare, the institution said in a statement.
Both organisations decided to launch a PG Diploma programme in Hospital Management to address the increasing demand for trained manpower for the healthcare sector.
The nine-month Post Graduate Programme in Hospital Management will cater exclusively to executives and managers looking to develop and enhance their expertise in hospital operations. Both organisations also decided to conduct joint research, seminars, and other academic collaborations.
Speaking on this occasion, Prof. Kunal Ganguly, Dean (Development), IIM Kashipur said “This collaboration is a milestone for IIM Kashipur to diversify its education offering and contribute to the healthcare sector.” He added that the first such program would be launched by the end of this year at IIM Kashipur, where the classes will be taken by faculty from both IIM Kashipur and Max Healthcare, along with the provision of hands-on training at the Max hospitals.
According to Umesh Gupta, Senior Director-HR and Chief People Officer at Max Healthcare, "In response to the rapid growth of the healthcare industry and increasing demand for skilled operations managers in hospitals, we have meticulously crafted a blended program. This program seamlessly integrates live lectures delivered by distinguished faculty from IIM Kashipur, insights from senior management at Max Healthcare, and cutting-edge e-learning content.”
