Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) and Apollo Medskills will launch the second edition of the General Management Programme for Healthcare Executives (GMHE) on August 7, 2017 at the IIM Bangalore campus.
Most healthcare enterprises identify “star” employees who are competent in their lines of work, and promote them to upper management. In a hospital context, senior doctors and nurses are charged with responsibilities that were not part of their professional training. There is thus a critical requirement to boost the management capabilities of those who take on leadership roles.
The General Management Programme for Healthcare Executives (GMHE) is a long duration part-time certificate programme that has been specifically designed for high performing individuals in the healthcare domain, who are transitioning to a management role. The programme has been designed and developed by IIMB in close partnership with Apollo MedSkills, the skills arm of Apollo Hospitals.
The modern healthcare industry has realized the need for business management professionals to run its various facilities. MBAs with specialization in healthcare management are much sought after for their leadership and business skills. Jobs for management graduates are on offer not only in hospitals but also in rehabilitation and long-term-care facilities, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, and other organizations.
The course allies IIMB’s academic expertise in management and Apollo’s healthcare competencies. This unique combination of managerial and technical expertise also represents a step forward in the understanding of medical markets.
