India’s rural economy has vast potential for development through micro, social and innovative enterprises.

Our generation is at the crossroads of a major natural resource crunch. In future, it will get difficult to sustain this burgeoning population. Nature has always been kind to provide bountiful resources through a natural cycle of creation, destruction and replenishment. However, despite having learnt to utilize these natural resources through science and technology, humankind is falling prey to over-usage of resources. The key to reversing this damage is facilitating the completion of natural cycles and restoring nature’s balance.
This task needs a large, trained cadre of innovative thinkers to work at district level. Technology is making traditional jobs redundant and non-attractive. A degree in Rural Management has the potential to provide fulfilling, well-paying livelihoods and holds the promise to a livable future.
