Career in Rural Management

“Rural management is the study of planning, organizing, directing, and controlling of co-operatives, agribusiness and allied fields. It merges the knowledge of management studies and applying it in the rural context. Most of the courses are designed in such a way that the concepts taught in the class are applied in the real life through training in the rural areas through case-studies and interaction with the rural people.” –Taken from Wikipedia
