IRMA 2014 PRM Eligibility for Sponsored Applicants

IRMA’s designated organisations can sponsor their employees ( executives and officers ) for CRM or PRM. PRM offers flexibility to working executives and officers who are sponsored by IRMA’s designated organisations. The sponsored applicants can complete the programs in two years, or they can opt for a Certificate in Rural Management ( CRM ) at the end of the first year. CRM holders have an option of rejoining within three years and completing the second year of the program to obtain a PGDRM. They have to submit “No Objection Certificate ( NOC )” from their organisation.

Those sponsored applicants who cannot meet the minimum academic standards will only be given a certificate of participation specifically addressed to their employers. CRM is not open to non – sponsored applicants.

At present, about 650 organisations have been designated by IRMA. Sponsored applicants are required to fulfill the following conditions for admission to IRMA :

  1. The applicant should hold a bachelor’s degree, in any discipline, from a recognised university / institution.
  2. The applicant should have worked with the sponsoring organisation for a minimum period of two years ( as on May, 2014 ) on a continuous basis as a full-time, regular employee.
  3. The sponsoring organisation should be willing to grant uninterrupted leave to the applicant ( if selected ) for the period of study at IRMA.
  4. The sponsoring organisation should undertake to make arrangements for payment of fees and other dues of the applicant to IRMA.

  8. The applicant should produce evidence of sponsorship from the sponsoring organisation.
  9. If rejoining within three years for completing the second year of the programs to obtain a “PGDRM”, she / he must be working with same organisation who sponsored she / he for the CRM and need to submit “No Objection Certificate ( NOC )” from them.

Essentials  for Sponsored Applicants :

Sponsored applicants should attach a certificate from their employer as per declaration of sponsorship form available on IRMA website, stating that they will be sponsored, if selected, along with the application form. If the sponsorship certificate is not enclosed, or if the organisation where the applicant is working is not a designated organisation of IRMA, the application of the applicant will be treated at par with the applications of other, non-sponsored applicants.

The sponsoring organisation must clearly specify the duration of the sponsorship and provide other details as per declaration of sponsorship form available on IRMA website. Employers willing to sponsor applicants may write directly to the Admissions Office, IRMA for clarification, if any.
