About the Organization

Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) is a premier, national-level Institute for Post Graduate, Fellowship and Mid-career/in-service education, research, and consulting in rural management. Founded in 1979, IRMA’s mission is to promote all-around sustainable rural development through professional management.

About the Programme

IRMA's Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Rural Management) prepares talented young managers to assume challenge-filled responsibilities in organizations that serve under-served communities in rural and urban India. The PGDM (RM) is a two-year fully residential managerial programme.

The PGDM(RM) curriculum is infused with multi-disciplinary, practical and ethical questions and analyses reflecting complex challenges that professional managers and leaders face. The pedagogy is based on the case method of teaching where actual management problems are discussed and analysed in the classroom. The classroom teaching is reinforced by an intensive fieldwork segment, where participants live with households in under-served communities and deeply study their socio-economic milieu from a management standpoint. The curriculum provides a wide spectrum of high quality courses with a great focus on experiential learning comprising of three distinct yet mutually supportive segments - Classroom, Village Fieldwork, and Summer Internship. The curriculum covers all core management subjects like Economics, Finance, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Strategy and Entrepreneurship. The curriculum also includes subjects that deepen the understanding of Rural Society, Economy and Polity.


  • A Graduate from any discipline, with a minimum of 15 years of education and 50% or above (45% or above for SC/ST/PwD*) aggregate marks or equivalent CGPA at the graduation level is eligible to apply for IRMA’s PGDM (RM) programme.
  • The percentage of aggregate marks is to be calculated as per the practice followed by the concerned university or institution. If the university/institution does not have a scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, IRMA will establish the equivalence by dividing obtained CGPA with the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the resultant with 100.
  • Candidates in the final year of the bachelor’s degree may also apply if they would furnish evidence of meeting the minimum eligibility criteria by September 2022.
  • Final year candidates should have passed all of their graduation examinations before the start of the program (July 01, 2022). The candidates failing to meet the minimum eligibility criteria will be asked to withdraw from the programme. The Fees paid by such candidates will be forfeited unless IRMA fills their vacant seats through new admissions.
