with out enterance exam we join in gim

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 5th Sep, 2019
GITAM has direct admission seats.
If you have good grades in intermediate, then they will give you direct admission. If you're ready to afford money, you can get admission from management quota. The money should be paid beside the actual fee.
Otherwise, if you know some faculty in GITAM or any academic staff, they can guide you for admission.

How is GIM HCM course in terms of ROI ? How is scope of healthcare management?

Aman Yadav 7th Apr, 2019


Hope you're doing great.

A few years back, Healthcare management wasn't an obvious choice among many aspirants due to ambiguity revolves around placement opportunities. However things are changing drastically,  a lot of students are taking part in Healthcare Management courses, especially those from Medical background. Today, doctors need to brush up their managerial skill if they want to run an organisation of their own. For example, MAX Hospital, Fortis, Dr Reddy, Dr Batra are some of the most established names in Healthcare management industry.

The Healthcare management industry is booming exponentially and job opportunities are rapidly increasing in the market. By 2022, it's been estimated that there will be $133 billion industry as per IBEF reports. So, I don't see any point if you're planning to pursue Healthcare management as your future career option. The HCM graduates are handsomely paid and at par with any students from other streams of MBA/PGDM.

Whenever we talk about the top 50 business school in India, Goa Institute of Management(GIM) has a sure shot position in that list. It's a decent b-school with good Return on Investment. As far as the Post graduation Diploma course (PGDM) course is concerned it has good teaching faculty. The case study based discussion is one of the USPs of GIT. HCM is one of the most preferred choices among aspirants and placements are par with the other PGDM students. The faculty members are highly trained and have enormous industrial experience. The college calls guest lecturer to the campus on a regular basis. 

Eligibility Criteria and Cutoffs: A candidate who has scored around 80-85 percentile in CAT/XAT/CMAT can expect an interview call. However, for HCM courses, profile-based shortlisting is prefered and the candidate with a good profile and decent competitive exam score can expect the call from GIM.

ROI: In terms of the return of investment, the course fee for HCM is close to 12 lacs. And the average placement bracket of the batch is around 11-12 lacs and highest placement offered last year was 24 lacs. HCM seems to have competitive ROI compare to other management courses.

Hope, you'll find this useful. Do reach out in the comment section below for more detail.

All the best! Cheers!
