Exploring new frontiers of MBA Rural Management with IIHMR University
The Rural Management course has come a long way ever since it was started by IRMA, TISS or XISS, to name a few significant pioneers.
The complexities of new emerging realities beckon us to focus on expanding pathways of rural-urban continuum instead of clinging too steadfastly to nomenclatures of ‘Rural’ and ‘Urban’ as frozen normative types. Such is the nature of new interdependencies of ‘rural’ and ‘urban’ in an age of networks and connectivity flows that together create an interactive space such as never known earlier. This perspective forms the central defining attribute of the MBA course offered by IIHMR University at Jaipur.
The field is diverse hence is open to people from varied educational backgrounds, skill sets and work experience.
Scope of careers is wide, ranging from setting up and managing supply chains of products ranging from FMCGs to exquisite handicrafts and organic products; facilitating producer companies of rural companies to managing CSR projects or managing responsible processes and systems in flagship development programmes of state; contributing to infrastructure and human resource development for better integration of rural areas and communities with essential services and markets, promoting equitable use of natural resources, pioneering green energy options, innovating low carbon lifestyles, enabling sustainable agriculture and livestock production.
And to top it all, one of the significant critical success factors in making a career choice with reference to an MBA in Rural Management is the passion for existing amidst and, possibly, contributing in making and regenerating of good earth, Gaia, the living planet.
The Rural Management course is offered as full time residential MBA degree by IIHMR University, Jaipur. Indian Institute of Health Management Research (IIHMR) Jaipur had pioneered Health Management as a post graduate MBA programme a decade and a half back.
The University has been at the frontiers of health research and has contributed to improving and setting new benchmarks for health systems management in the country. The unique eco-friendly architecture of the University, a rich repository of experiential learning about health and quality of life of human communities in India, creates an enabling environment for learning.
