Barefoot life

Batch of Jan. 1, 2016 | PGDM Rural Management
This college is one of the unique experiences in my life. The kind of course curriculum and structure in this institute are exceptionally good in terms of industry experience, conceptual understanding integrated with practical implementation and grassroots level of work. The infrastructure is highly appropriate to facilitate the core learning without any hindrance and also to spend a memorable life for two years. The spirit of IRMA has led to such a beautiful culture that all the diverse activities pertaining to sports, academics, and art are pursued with the same amount of zeal and enthusiasm.

IRMA-rural journey begins

Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | PGDM Rural Management
One could not have a better opportunity of writing about his college when he is about to finish his 1st term aka first orientation of a b-school.Wait a minute,IRMA is a top B-school but with a special purpose.The purpose is to create future rural managers.So,here classic courses like economics,statistics are enveloped as economics analysis on rural management or quantitative analysis of rural management.where participants(no student) are acquainted with rural examples of economic theories or statistics of poverty is also discussed.We have three internship one of which is a village fieldwork segment.Regarding hostel life it's a good experience so far as one get friends from different backgrounds starting from agriculture,fisheries to IT.As per placement is concern IRMA provides different options starting from MNC to Development sectors.In a way, if someone is willing to take meaningful career choice,IRMA is for you.

IRMA is a perfect place for the managers to get training in rural management which is the new emerging and yet unsaturated field. Companies are increasingly venturing into the bottom of the pyramid and IRMA provides a perfect ground to attain the required skills. Its internship in the development and corporate sectors lend it ahead of IIMA students in working in rough terrain.

An oasis of learning absolutely different from elsewhere

Posted on 01 Sep' 16 by Shefali Roy
Batch of Jan. 1, 2017 | PGDM Rural Management
Our campus has a library, Teaching Aid Unit, mess, sports centre, 24x7 WiFi, Auditorium. It needs a good gymnasium, a cafeteria, and a functional bureaucracy. We already have the highest industry exposure in the most varied sectors. Acknowledging that the participants of this course are mature adults, and not rebellious teenagers could help in getting us more freedom to organize and have a more happening campus life. Also, regular informal interactions through an open-mic evening open for all on campus would be enriching. Placements yet to happen for our batch. Our alumni are placed in reputed banks, microfinance organizations, development organizations, and cooperatives. Pretty much happy with our hostels. The variety of fields, ages, and cultures brought by our students has helped us in understanding India and its people better. More holistic understanding of the problems and outlooks of the people of our country. Our college is affordable in terms of fees, living expenses, and learning in both classroom and on the field.
