IIHS as Sri Lanka’s premier private health education centre prides itself on empowering healthcare staf f in South Asia. With local and international academic staff, IIHS soars in the global education fields with its schools in Nursing, Physiotherapy, Bio Medical Sciences, Health Administration and Business Management Schools. With its extensive history in the health and education sectors, IIHS is by far the most influential private institute in the region. With the escalation in healthcare demand and the need for a highly dynamic delivery, the International Institute of Health Sciences at a very suitable and a welltimed manner launched the MBA Health Administration in Sri Lanka. Health administrators are obligated and legally bound to adhere to health regulations and ethics whilst maintaining professional and patient health care standards. It is vital for health administrators to oversee hospital operations – from maintaining accreditation standards to ensuring organisational policies are adhered to at the ground level.

This includes directly or passively supervising staff performance at a very fundamental level to ensure consumer needs are fulfilled in the health care arena. Hospital administrators are recognised as the highest paid professionals nationally and internationally. Due to their significantly advantageous insight into health care operations and consumer needs, the median annual salary of a Hospital Administrator in the international setting approximates to $ 80, 240 per annum. In the case of Sri Lanka, the starting wage in a private sector hospital health administrator exceeds Rs. 150,000 per month and multiplies with relevant qualifications and experience. IIHS in collaboration with Asia e University (AeU) has formulated the Masters in Business Administration program to provide the desired dispensable academic tools to understand and apply the key practices in Health Administration in Sri Lanka and at an international standard. AeU is a UGC Approved University and is a partner of the Commonwealth Association of Universities. Entry criteria for this program he program is suitable for working professionals as the course is delivered over duration of 18 months, through blended learning. The program consists of face to face delivery fortnightly with the assistance of the IIHS Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and Moodle. Additionally, a complete online mode is available for working professionals. Healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, foreign medical graduates and NGO professionals engaged in health projects and those in the pharmaceutical industry reap the benefits of the mentioned program. Furthermore, for non-health professionals the course is made available through a similar lear ning pathway but with two additional learning modules including Medical Terminology and Disease Pathology and Epidemiology. Entry requirements include a degree from recognised university or a recognised diploma or professional qualification with more than 35 years of age with working experience. Dr. Sarath Samrage, Consultant – Institute for Health Policy, a guest lecturer of IIHS, former consultant of World Health Organization states, “The healthcare industry is one the largest in the county and health administration is a major component of healthcare. With large financial benefits and overall positive career outlooks, this course is considered one of the most beneficial programs for working professionals. Many that work in this field experience great job satisfaction and with a broad range of opportunities available, professionals can find a rewarding, stable career in the health care industry with plenty of room for growth.” IIHS Deputy Chairman Dr. Kithsiri Edirisinghe states, “The MBA program offered by IIHS is one of the most recognised pathways to health administration. It is a two-year part time course at IIHS and is one of the most sought after programs in Sri Lanka. The IIHS teaching environment is very conducive to working professionals and the hybrid learning mode promotes a very rich learning experience. Our teaching methods are very student centric and we believe that this program would allow students to gain opportunities in the academic and research arenas.” For further information visit us at Head Office – No 704, Negombo Road Wattala or City Center – No. 5/1, 329, Meewella Building, Bambalapitiya, Colombo 04 or call 0114 651144, 0766568353, 076666078 and 0768 231827; email: info@iihsciences.edu.lk.
