In today’s world of constant change and economic uncertainty, students are quiet perplexed in choosing their career path. Those streams which were considered to be great career prospects in the 90’s or even till 2008 has lost its shine. Every year we see there is fall in the number of students who are appearing for CAT or MAT. In the last three years we have seen several Management and Engineering colleges have shut down due to low student intake. It is quite evident that students want to come out of conventional courses and are ready to take career oriented courses.
In several write up from Ministry of HRD we also see that they are asking the colleges to come up with courses that are career oriented or industry oriented. Keeping the above concept in mind we in Haldia Institute of Management have come up with courses that are industry oriented and research based. The main motto of our institute is to produce students who are healthcare industry ready from the day they leave the college. This will save the unnecessary cost of training the students in the hospitals or nursing homes. To achieve this Haldia Institute of Management will have constant Hospital Visit for the students and Faculty members, so that they can understand the need of the healthcare sector. Vis-à-vis healthcare Industry people will be invited in Haldia Institute of Management, so that they can interact with students and faculty members. Apart from these throughout the year there will industry-academia related program and seminars. All these coupled with the industry internship that all students will go through will make the students industry ready from day one.
In this period of uncertainty we have seen that two industries which have stayed ahead of others are namely Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Industry. Keeping this in mind we have ventured into BBM(H) in Hospital Management & Master of Hospital Administration. We have also introduced two unique courses namely BMS in Pharmaceutical Management and MMS in Pharmaceutical Management first time in Eastern India. Both the above courses are professional in nature and helps the student build a lucrative career ahead. The courses are uniquely designed for fulfilling the specialized manpower needs of the Healthcare Industry. The courses give the student thorough knowledge of Administration, Medical and Management subjects.
I welcome each and every student who will undertake the above courses and wish them best of luck for their professional future. May the stay in Haldia Institute of Management be a pleasant one that you can cherish throughout your life.
