Sustainable Natural Resource Management

India is a country of villages and farmers. Most of its population lives in villages and rural areas. As the rural population is economically backward, it is the duty of educated masses especially the qualified professionals in rural management to assist the villagers in their process of development so that the whole nation could achieve progress and prosperity.

The course is designed in such a way where the content is Management, and the context is Rural It has a unique mix of the class room offerings with hands on training and internship in real life situation. The participants of the course will get the opportunity to get involved in implementation of various real life projects and programs and will get a pan India exposure.

The challenge before IBRAD is to manage the delicate balance between making the  programme attractive enough so that good, bright candidates apply, and at the same time live with the convictions and the basic mission for which IBRAD has been founded.

Let us examine how the paradigm shifts that has happened in the marketplace for rural managers, and reflects with some opportunity on how the future of Sustainable rural management education can be addressed.

Such organizations offering formal academic programmes in rural management need people with special skills - managers who have their heart in the right place, and could understand the world of business. It has been difficult for formal  educated sophisticated and urban youth to see  rural stakeholders masses as their clients. A career in rural management is all about uplift-ment of rural working and lifestyle through systematic development plans, hence an aspirant for this field should possesses a heart for the issue concerning the rural community, besides possessing an outgoing, friendly personality, ability to handle masses, ability to handle pressure & leadership skills.

There is a need for such a programme where the content had to be Management, and the context had to be Rural It needs a unique mix of the structure of the programme in class room offerings, the pedagogy and design   is based on research from IBRAD’s experience.
