Institute of Rural Management, Anand (IRMA) is an autonomous institution located at Anand
in Gujarat, India with the mandate of
contributing to the professional management of rural organizations. It was
founded at the initiative of the National Dairy Development Board and the
support of Government of India, Government of Gujarat and Swiss Development
Co-operation. IRMA works closely with co-operatives, NGOs, governments, Indian
national and international agencies.
is founded with the belief, borne out by Dr.Kurien’s work in the dairy
co-operatives which revolutionized the dairy industry in the country, that the
key for effective rural development is professional management. Professionalizing
the management of rural organizations calls for matching the specific but unmet
needs of the sector with the formal techniques and skills of management
professionals. Linking the two are the ‘rural managers’ prepared by IRMA
through its two-year diploma (PRM) in rural management.
