PGDM Rural Management Rural Banking & Finance Management- IRM Jaipur

The Faculty of Management Studies of the Institute of Rural Management, Jaipur is a leading educational institute of Northern India, offering a specific PGDM program in Rural Management (Rural Banking and Finance Management).

Course Syllabus

The PGDM program in Rural Management (RM) with a specialisation in Rural Banking & Finance Management is aimed at meeting the requirement for qualified and professional managers in rural organisations and rural market-oriented business organisations. The PGDM-RM program is a comprehensive one, designed keeping in mind, the complex environment in which the agricultural organisations function. The focus is on the development of young, dynamic managers using a structured and practice-oriented program so that they can take up challenging responsibilities in the rural environment.

There are varied job opportunities for students of the PGDM-RM program, as MNCs are now focusing on the previously untapped rural markets. Therefore, the managers from IRM are in high demand.


The teaching faculty uses the most advanced techniques in training the students like seminars, classroom sessions, workshops, group assignments, homework assignments, term papers, case studies, presentations, business and behavioural games, and on-field practices of different durations. Visiting dignitaries give guest lecturers regularly.


The students are evaluated in each subject, using three components:

  • Continuous Evaluation – This is carried out through class participation, surprise tests, assignments, term papers, presentations, class tests, and live projects.
  • Mid-Term Evaluation – This is an online examination where students need to appear for a computer-based online objective test.
  • End-Term Evaluation – This is conducted at the end of each semester.

Additionally, after these three types of evaluations, students are assessed for Managerial Traits (MT) by observing their conduct on campus, organisational skills, discipline, leadership skills, and communication skills. This evaluation is done by a separate panel nominated by the President who observes each student carefully and also interacts with the faculty members.
