Situated in the sylvan surroundings of the beautiful city of Bhopal, the Indian Institute of Forest Management is a key milestone for sectoral management education. Established in 1982 as an autonomous institution under the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), Government of India, it was conceptualized in response to the recommendations of the National Agriculture Commission (NAC). The impetus generated by these recommendations culminated in an alliance with the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM A) through which the philosophy and raison dtre of IIFM was evolved. The Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) also contributed financially and technically in establishing the Institute. Since its inception, IIFM has been home to some of the most brilliant young minds who are constantly raising the bar of excellence in this dynamic field.

About PGDFM
IIFM believes in the importance of giving its students extensive practical exposure alongside invaluable academic inputs to ensure their holistic development. This ensures a perfect mix of business acumen and academic intellect. Such exposure is provided by means of Summer Internship, Field Visits, Industry Visits, Guest Lectures, and Live Projects. A ten week compulsory Summer Internship with various organizations which include Financial institutions, Forest based Organizations, Development Organizations, NGOs, Government Departments, MNCs, etc., provides an opportunity for students to apply academic knowledge to real time managerial problems. 3-week-long field trips are conducted twice during the programme to provide on-field knowledge. In Post Graduate Diploma in Forestry Management (PGDFM), the students pursue a combination of subjects ranging from general management to development management, environmental management and conservation & livelihood management. In addition to understanding the dynamics of Forest Management, specific projects assigned to the groups sensitizes them to issues like livelihood development, community participation and Public Private Partnerships. After four terms of studying core management subjects, students specialize in one of three fieldsdevelopment management, environmental management and conservation and livelihood managementin the fifth and sixth terms. The institute also offers students the option of a minor specialization, giving them the opportunity to acquire complementary skills and knowledge from several relevant areas. Hence, even as students acquire knowledge in specialized areas, they gain a deeper understanding of the linkages that exist in the above mentioned sectors. This diversity in terms of exposure to real life situations refines the decision-making capacity in the students. Of course, all this would not be possible without a strong conceptual foundation of relevant subjects of study.
