Post Graduate programme in Rural Management (PRM 2013-15)
Fellow programme in Rural Management (FPRM 2013)

Postgraduate Programme in Rural Management (PRM): Many good stand-alone programmes of business management and development are available in India today. IRMA’s PRM integrates the two streams and equips talented men and women with both development perspectives and business acumen. IRMA recognizes that institutions working for rural development operate in a complex environment, in which there is a far greater need for professional management. IRMA trains talented men and women through a well-structured two-year Postgraduate Programme in Rural Management, in order to undertake challenging responsibilities in development and producers’ organizations with the right ethical values. IRMA has been working closely with its client organizations to integrate their emerging needs into its academic programme by periodically revising the curricula. The present PRM design is a reflection of this growing partnership. PRM is a two-year fully residential programme leading to a Postgraduate Diploma in Rural Management (PGDRM). PGDRM is recognized as equivalent to Master’s degree by the AIU and is approved by the AICTE

Placement: The campus placement programme for each graduating batch ensures that all the students secure meaningful and challenging career opportunities in tune with IRMA’s mission. Our PRM graduates are highly valued by cooperatives, NGOs, government development agencies, and national and international donors engaged in promoting rural development. The distinguishing feature of all these bodies is their willingness and ability to make effective use of young and well-trained professional managers. The five-day campus recruitment programme organised by the campus placement office is held in the month of February during the second year of PRM. The jobs offered to IRMA graduates vary widely. The job offers are in areas such as planning and information systems, production management, marketing, finance, accounts, human resource development, rural development, and natural resource management. IRMA seeks to ensure that its graduates are offered competitive remuneration. IRMA has enlisted over 650 organisations that are designated for the purpose of placement of its graduates. The list is ever increasing, and attempts are made every year to enlist more organisations that can offer challenging careers to IRMA students. Consistent with its objectives, IRMA’s placement support is confined to placing students with the designated organisations only. It may be noted that IRMA’s placement facility is not open to sponsored candidates. IRMA graduates have succeeded not only in choosing meaningful jobs but have also received decent salaries with 100 per cent placement

Programme cost: Costs for students are kept low through cross-subsidisation, with the aim of helping them serve the needs of the challenging rural sector more effectively. The total programme cost over the period of two years (inclusive of tuition fee and service charges) is estimated to be about Rs 4 lakh. IRMA has a cooperative mess, which is governed and managed by students. Students also frame and implement the rules and regulations of the mess. They share the cost of boarding equally
Scholarships, Educational Loans and Fee Exemption: IRMA has several prestigious scholarships for deserving students, which are mentioned below

IRMA Fellowship: IRMA revised the provisions of IRMA Fellowship since 2008-10 batch. Only those students who get a monthly gross salary that is less than the decided minimum gross salary will be eligible to receive the IRMA Fellowship (provided they join the organizations that are eligible for the purpose of the fellowship). The amount of the IRMA Fellowship to an eligible student will be equal to the difference between the actual amount of his/her gross salary and the decided minimum gross salary. The recipient of IRMA fellowship may get a maximum of Rs 3 lakhs during the course of 3 years
Scholarships from Sir Ratan Tata Trust: Sir Ratan Tata Trust offers about five scholarships every year to second-year students based on merit. The scholarship covers a part of the fees during the second year, subject to a ceiling of Rs 50,000/-. The number and amount of the scholarship are approved by the trust on a year-to-year basis
Scholarships for SC/ST candidates: More than 15 scholarships covering the entire costs of education of SC/ST candidates are available at IRMA. The scholarship covers fees, non-refundable charges, lodging and boarding expenses, and cost of books, stationery, and personal computer (

Educational Loans: Educational loans are available from various banks. The State Bank of India provides educational loans at a lower interest rate and without any collateral to candidates enrolling at IRMA

Fee exemption: IRMA firmly believes that no one should be deprived of education for lack of financial resources. Hence IRMA is open for providing financial assistance to meet the PRM tuition fees of extremely poor candidates
