There has been a growth of corporate hospitals with specialised healthcare system. Many corporate organisations have plans to build state-of-art hospitals. These mega hospitals would require specialised manpower to oversee their management. MBA healthcare professionals are trained for this specialised responsibility.

MBA healthcare professionals have an understanding of the broad areas of healthcare management and issues related to administration, planning, organising, directing, and controlling the organisation's human, financial, and information resources. With the healthcare industry witnessing remarkable growth in the last few years, the concept of healthcare has gone beyond hospitals. Instead, it is now related to a gamut of quality services linked to hospitals.

Healthcare operations call for specialisation, team work and time-bound operations in a multi-tasking environment. Thus there is a demand for executives and managers, to bring in professionalism in healthcare delivery.

The Sankara Nethralaya Academy (TSNA), a unit of Medical Research Foundation, Chennai, is offering a two-year full-time MBA in Hospital and Health System Management (in association with Gemba School of HR, Chennai), affiliated to The Tamil Nadu Dr M G R Medical University, Chennai.
