Post‐Graduate Programme in Development Management

Origin and Mission

Development Management Institute (DMI) was set up on February 13, 2014 pursuant to a desire of the Government of Bihar to establish a High Performing Knowledge Institution (HPKI). Inspired by and recognising the growing need for development management professionals, the Government of Bihar took the initiative to establish DMI as an autonomous institution. The rationale of DMI is best captured in its mission “To empower and usher in participatory governance and management of institutions, enterprises and resources for enhancing livelihoods and generating sustainable development".

Development Management

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) present an opportunity to approach, in a holistic manner, the current development challenges such as widening inequalities; social, political and economic marginalisation; and environmental degradation exacerbated by climate change. There is an urgent need for striking an optimal balance between societal and individual orientation through a synergetic alliance among the multiple stakeholders. DMI aims at meeting this dire need by developing managerial and leadership competencies through the processes of Integral Learning, Professionalisation, TransdisciplinaryResearch and Conscientisation.

Post‐Graduate Programme in Development Management (AICTE Approved)

The pioneering activity of DMI is its two‐year full‐time Post‐Graduate Programme in Development Management (PDM) which aims at preparing its graduates to achieve:

  • Personal growth by widening perspectives through interactive learning from perspective building, foundational, functional and integrative courses, and enriched by learning by doing and reflective dialoguing process; and
  • Transformation into Development Management Professionals by exposure to contextual realities during immersion, enterprise learning and apprenticeship modules, mediated by experiential learning from first‐hand living and working in situ.

PDM curriculum primarily focuses on imparting competencies necessary for participatory governance and management of resources, enterprises, institutions and interventions. The PDM curriculum is a fine mix of mutually reinforcing Interactive Learning and hands‐on Experiential Learning through a network of diverse institutional partners of DMI.
