Management Development Programmes (MDPs) aim to address the in-service training needs of the executives and managers working in affiliated sector organisations of IRMA including co-operatives, not-for-profit, and government and semi-government organisations engaged in rural development. IRMA believes that in the rapidly changing task environment, managers and executives of all such types of organisations are challenged by contemporary management issues. IRMA plays a vital role in fulfilling this need of the rural sector through its tailor-made MDPs since its inception. In addition to conducting "On-campus" training programmes, IRMA encourages sector organisations to participate in "Off-campus" training programmes. So far, IRMA has conducted over 826 On-campus programmes with an enrolment exceeding approximately 16951 personnel and over 229 Off-campus programmes.
