There are people who do not have time or funds enough to pursue a full-time course. In case you are one such person you can opt for the diploma course. The diploma course is in a way better than obtaining a degree because you get an immense amount of work-experience in a very short time. Once you complete your diploma you can get low-level jobs in government hospitals or private firms. However, with enough experience in your hands, it is often seen as a trend that you may be guiding your seniors with things to do.
If you establish yourself well enough in the field, an experience of 10 to 12 years will fetch you a high post job in the field. There are only a few colleges that offer a diploma course in Hospital management, though.
Another wise usage of time is opting for a short-term course after completing your graduation or diploma in order to add a shine to your resume at relatively low costs. In case you are unable to get a good college to pursue your degree from, you can always opt for a short-term course from a reputed college in order to add the required flair to the resume. The duration of the short term course varies from college to college and course to course. However, the usual duration being 6 to 7 months.
A short-term course will not provide you with the whole knowledge of the degree but will provide you with enough knowledge for a specialization in a certain field such as economics or finance.
