Institute of Rural Management, Anand was established in 1979 with the support of the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC), the Government of India, the Government of Gujarat, erstwhile Indian Dairy Corporation and the National Dairy Development Board to provide management education, training, research and consultancy support to co-operatives and rural development organizations in India.
IRMA is founded with the belief, borne out by Dr.Kurien’s work in the dairy co-operatives which revolutionized the dairy industry in the country, that the key for effective rural development is professional management. Professionalizing the management of rural organizations calls for matching the specific but unmet needs of the sector with the formal techniques and skills of management professionals. Linking the two are the ‘rural managers’ prepared by IRMA through its two-years diploma (PRM) in rural management.
IRMA has become a front runner in professionalizing the development of India’s rural sector. Over the years it has provided management training, support and research facilities to students committed to rural development and in this process it has brought within its ambit several co-operatives, non-government organizations, government development agencies, international development organizations and funding agencies.
Placement Cell :-
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.
