The Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIM-B) announced a collaboration with Apollo Medskills to launch a certificate programme on healthcare management called General Management Programme for Healthcare Executives (GMHE). The year-long course will be launched in June 2016 and held at the Bannerghatta campus of IIM-B.
On the launch, Professor Shyamal Roy, Chairperson – Executive Education, IIM-B, said, “Over time, IIM-B has developed expertise in offering long-duration certificate programmes for working professionals. There was a long pending demand from industry to start a programme focused on healthcare. I am, therefore, very pleased to announce the launch of this programme in partnership with Apollo Medskills. Healthcare is a rapidly growing sector of the economy. I am sure that the sector will benefit immensely from this programme.”
Clinicians who want to pursue a career in hospitality management, professionals from allied-sector organisations like pharmaceutical, diagnostics, medical devices, health insurance, clinical research and entrepreneurs and management consultants wanting to expand their operations are eligible to participate in the course.
The 12-month part-time programme will be taught by a combination of academicians, and industry experts from the Apollo Group.
