TISS is a pioneer in health and hospital administration programmes in the country and continues to remain as an innovator in curriculum and delivery. The Master of Public Health (Health Administration) Programme (MPH-HA) develops professional managers and administrators for the health services sector. The health services sector has grown enormously over the past few decades in a highly diversified manner—the government sector in primary care and in hospitals, the not for profit or voluntary sector in health care, health insurance, health information systems—and all of these sectors need capable administrators and analysts. This sector is likely to grow even further in the coming years providing employment to a significant proportion of the work-force.


This programme includes taught courses, three internships and a research project. The programme is designed to be completed within two years; but has a provision to complete over a maximum period of 5 years from the date of registration. Graduates of this programme have been offered managerial positions in national and international health care organisations and projects—both in government and in the healthcare industry. Some opt to work with not-for-profit organisations and community based programmes. The skills they acquire includes the technical skills required for desiging, planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluation of health care programmes and projects and the people skills required for working in and leading a team of professionals. It also orients the students to macro issues relevant to health policy and programming in the country. In the past, students have been employed by key national organisations such as the National Health Systems Resource Centre (NHSRC) or State Health Resource Centres of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the National AIDS Control Organisation and other national health programmes, State Health Societies and major voluntary organisations such as CARE-India, Catholic Relief Service, and Aga Khan Health Services, India. Some are also absorbed into UN organisations such as UNFPA, and international health projects supported by organisations like the World Bank, WHO and DFID. In recent years, they are also finding positions in the IT and the health insurance sectors.
