The rapidly changing national and international agricultural landscape has opened up significant opportunities to those who have passion for excellence. One such opportunity is the ever expanding food and agri-business arena with vast untapped potential for professional excellence and societal transformation. Sensing the national as well as global need to integrate research knowledge with agribusiness and increased emphasis on the creation, application and exchange of knowledge in the agriculture sector, NAARM initiated the Post Graduate Diploma in Management-Agriculture (PGDMA) program in the year 2009.
PGDMA is a 2 year, fully residential programme approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) designed to prepare students for management-related careers in the agriculture and food and allied sectors. The candidates for the programme are selected from pan India through rigorous selection procedure to maintain high standards. The programme aims at enabling students to acquire the critical competitiveness for functioning as effective Agribusiness managers, amalgamating sensitivity towards grass root level needs with corporate world expertise.
