Student’s Research

Student’s Research Compendium 

A Compendium of MTS Projects of MBA (Rural Management)

We at KSRM believe that research institutions are the key to knowledge economy. KSRM has established a strong tradition in research to identify and fill knowledge gaps in various areas of rural management and development. The philosophy of the school rests on honing the management theories and development models learnt in the classroom with the touchstone of development practice. In this context, we encourage applied and action research initiatives among our students to promote their analytical abilities through applied and action research. The focus is to transform research from “providing information” to “delivering insights”. The MBA (Rural Management) program of KSRM has rigorous field components as its integral parts. An element of applied research is a part of all the field components. The MTS (Management Traineeship Segment) I & II, are two of the three fieldwork segments undertaken by KSRM students. The primary aim of MTS is to provide systematic exposure and enhance learning opportunities in field conditions at the rural grassroots. Students work on live projects offered by a range of host organizations in locations all over India, on a wide range of rural management concerns. Organizations that have partnered in this process include corporate, development organizations, co-operatives, public sector units, rural enterprises, MFIs, International NGOs, research institutions and others.

In 2010 we took a decision to bring this valuable work done by our students in public domain for the benefit of research community and organizations working in rural development. The research work done by our students of MBA-RM is brought out as a publication titled “Kaleidoscope” In this compendium studies have been grouped under different facets of the rural development domain like Agribusiness, Climate Change, Disasters and Natural Resource Management, Rural Marketing, ICT for Development etc. Projects having higher relevance with respect to the rural development and covering current issues relevant to inclusive growth and development have been highlighted by being substantiated. The compendium contains rich insights from the grassroots level. It covers various development interventions happening on a profit or non-profit mode and also covers the realm of social entrepreneurship. It offers not only descriptions about the different projects but also solutions for the development practitioner and the rural entrepreneur. This publication is released every year on 20th November, our foundation day
