MTS

Management Traineeship Segment

This segment is designed to provide the students with an opportunity to work closely with experienced managers in an organisational setting. It exposes the students to the working and functions of organisations and gives them an opportunity to apply, test and polish the skills acquired in the classroom. Through the Management Traineeship Segment (MTS), the students develop practical skills and realistic assessment of the managerial functions in rural organisations.

The MTS is of nine weeks duration and is scheduled after Term IV. Specifically, the objective of MTS is to provide the students opportunities to:

  • Study and demonstrate the role of a professional rural manager in an organisation,
  • Develop appropriate attitudes, values and skills required of a professional rural manager,
  • Test the applicability of management concepts and techniques, and
  • Develop an integrated understanding of functioning of a rural development or producers' organisation.
The MTS helps the students to develop key abilities which they need on the job: working effectively with others, thinking and acting positively, learning to manage people, and improving written and oral communication. The MTS also imparts flexibility and creativity to the overall design of the programme. At the end of the MTS, students present and discuss their reports, first in the host organisations and later in MTS seminars at IRMA. The MTS reports of students constitute a valuable and useful collection in the IRMA library. Both, the MTS reports and the presentations are evaluated.
