The Development Management Institute (विकास प्रबंधन संस्थान) (DMI) is a public business school located in Patna, Bihar, India. It was established in 2014 with the active support of the Rural Development Department, Government of Bihar.

DMI Patna offers a 2-year Post Graduate course called Programme in Development Management(PDM).

Its programme is accredited by AICTE.[4]


DMI was set up on 13 February 2014 pursuant to a desire and decision of the Government of Bihar to establish a High Performing Knowledge Institution patterned on the vision with which the Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) was established in 1979. Nitish Kumar, chief minister of Bihar, in a meeting attended by core committee members, directed officials concerned to complete recruitment of faculty for the institute by March 2014, so that the academic work could begin from the coming academic session July–August 2014.[5] The first class commenced their studies in June 2014. A 15 acre campus is being built in Bihta.[6]
