The related courses in Hospital Management are as following -

  • Bachelor’s Degree

Pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in this field will let you put your hands on a certificate that says Bachelor of Hospital Administration (BHA). The Bachelor’s degree in Hospital Administration will allow you to get your hands on a good enough job that shall pay from 30 – 40 thousand rupees a month for a fresher. As you gain experience, you will earn more in this field. Also, the amount that you earn will depend on the place you work at, highly. For example, the private hospitals tend to pay more than government hospitals. However, there are several added perks and benefits to a government job that you will not get with a private job.

The criterion for getting into a program of Bachelor’s Degree is that the applicant should have completed 10+2 with biology subject. The further criteria change from college to college.

  • Master’s Degree

On completion of Master’s degree in this field, you will get a certificate of having completed, Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Public Health (MPH) programs.

  • Diploma Course

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.

  • Short-term certificate courses

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.
