KIIT School of Rural Management - KSRM
KSRM Bhubaneswar proffers courses such as Master of Business Administration in Rural Management, Certificate Course in Basic Banking. KIIT School of Rural Management (KSRM), Bhubaneswar came into existence with the laying of the foundation stone by the father of the White Revolution, Late Dr. Verghese Kurien & Dr. A Samanta, Founder of KIIT Group of Institute & KISS on 20th November, 2006 in the premises of the KIIT University. Inspite of impressive economic growth in India in the last decade, the level of rural poverty and unemployment remains high and the problem of rural-urban disparity has got exacerbated. The fact is that a little more than 50 per cent of India’s population continues to be engaged in agriculture (which barely accounts for 14 per cent of GDP), while less than 30 per cent of the population works in the service sector, which accounts for more than 67 per cent of GDP. Although non-agricultural sectors continued to grow faster, this failed to wean away people from agriculture at the desired pace, leading to a lopsided growth of the Indian economy. Stagnation of agriculture, a sharp decline in employment is contributing to increasing rural-urban divide. It is time that rural people themselves take charge of the situation and create innovative organizations and institutional arrangements in order to achieve balanced growth of rural economy.
Human Resource is a crucial sub-system in the process of effective management and development of rural economy. The rural-urban divide in India is a clear reflection of differences in quality of human resources engaged in implementation of rural development programmes. In fact, lack of professional institutions and human resources is largely responsible for the backwardness of the rural economy. We at KSRM believe that rural development will come through committed man power with appropriate skills, knowledge and attitudes. Abundance of human resources has no meaning unless they are equipped with these traits.
