And other short term courses
KHSI is a much sought-after course, and competition to get admission to it is intense. without any exaggeration, the finest graduate course in the discipline that this country offers, especially after recent changes have improved its structure and significantly increased the levels of academic sophistication and difficulty.
It is technically demanding and requires strong mathematical and "quantitative" skills. A pre-entry class in fact is very good preparatory training; to solve any problems of students specially those who have been kept away from systematic learning process.
There is a very distinguished list of former students of the programs in the institute who have then gone on to senior positions in government and private health care centers and any other organization as World Bank or Asian Development Bank, the IMF and so on; many are in Professorial positions at institutions in Afghanistan or abroad (Columbia, UCLA, Carnegie-Mellon, Brown, etc- the list is long). But it is not the case that the only routes lead to academics or research careers. Our students go on to do management studies at one or the other of the many business schools, and thence to the corporate sector. A fair proportion get jobs immediately after the undergraduate degree in a variety of private sector firms - in the financial sector, in consultancy, in the hospitality industry, in the print and electronic media, etc.
