The rural economy contributes 25-30% to the nation’s GDP and employs a considerable number of people. Yet, the focus of management institutes is mostly on urban centres and problems. The conventional MBA Programmes focuses on Marketing, Finance, Operations, Retail, and Human Resource with emphasis on urban centres. However, it is the rural sector that provides the next big opportunity to management students.

Scope of Rural Management

In 2022 too, more than 60% of Indian population lives in rural areas. Even the people in the urban areas are dependent on the activities that happen in the rural areas such as agriculture. Therefore, there will always be scope for rural management. The rural sector in India is still undeveloped and in need of energetic, visionary professionals to uplift it. This is where young professionals of PGDM (RM) can come in to create a defining impact.
