In the same year, the institute also started an Integrated Programme in Management to tap young minds immediately after Class XII.

The institute has a conducive research environment. The faculty and research scholars at IIM Ranchi have varied backgrounds and experiences that contribute to a strong research foundation.

Vision, Mission & Core Values

Vision: To be a leading management institute focused in multifaceted and holistic development of graduates and scholars.

Mission: IIM Ranchi is committed to support excellence in management education and research that positively impacts people, organizations, and society.

Core Values: Humility, Honesty and Hard work for individual and corporate success.

Logo: Our logo has been designed to reflect the mission and core values described above.

The bird in the logo is a crow. We chose the crow because it has several positive traits that the Institute stands for. Crow is an epitome of community living and sharing and caring of each other which are the ethos of IIM Ranchi. It is an aerial scavenger that cleans up the earth by eating carcasses. Crows in many cultures are the keepers of knowledge as nothing escapes their keen eye-sight. Crows are very adaptable and can live in different climatic conditions. The bird has been created in a manner that it looks like a forward arrow, taking everybody (The three green strokes symbolize the community), along together for the flight. The Sanskrit verses symbolize the Institute’s vision as working to bring change towards success, not only for one’s self, but also for the community

Director's Message

Since its inception in 2009, the Indian Institute of Management Ranchi has been dedicated to promoting excellence in management education and research to have a positive impact on people, organizations, and society.

I am pleased to announce that IIM Ranchi has begun operating from its own campus in Prabandhan Nagar, Ranchi, with the goal of offering exceptional on-campus resources in order to give its students with a world-class campus experience.

IIM Ranchi possesses a number of noteworthy advantages that facilitate its growth. Among these are an exceptional, young, and dynamic faculty base, prominent, cutting-edge academic programmes, and a culture that encourages experimentation and new initiatives. Over past thirteen years, IIM Ranchi has built up a strong reputation among leading Indian corporations and maintained a remarkable placement record by continuously enhancing pay packages and increasing the number of recruiters.

IIM Ranchi aspires to uphold global academic standard while concurrently fostering a symbiotic relationship with the local culture, equipping students for social impact initiatives. Recently, the institute has drafted a strategic plan known as IIMRanchi@2030 which sustain the esteemed legacy of IIM Ranchi while providing a well-defined trajectory for the institute to pursue in the coming years. IIMRanchi@2030 recognises four key priorities: education, impactful research, social impact, and international collaboration, which serve as the foundation for its mission and vision as a leading management institute.

IIM Ranchi has undertaken a range of initiatives to support academic excellence and holistic development of students, including:

  • Offering merit-cum-means scholarships to students who are academically outstanding but need financial help
  • As a part of the comprehensive revamping, introducing new academic area as liberal arts and sciences and renaming strategic management area as the strategy and entrepreneurship area to highlight the entrepreneurship as one of the focus areas of the institute
  • Offering diverse enrichment electives such as local tribal language, cinematography, socratic dialogue, water management, sports management, human connect, drama and theatre, and incorporating compulsory courses on various topics such as science of happiness and tribes in India
  • Promoting inclusivity through initiatives like “Human Connect” and “Nature Connect,” and contributing to the community through “Community Libraries” and “Learning for All”
  • Fostering alumni engagement with “IIM Ranchi for Life” initiative
  • Researching “Tribal Entrepreneurship” and the “Indian Business System” with the goal of shedding light on unexplored facets of these areas and adding to knowledge of indigenous and ancient business practices

The aforementioned initiatives, as well as future endeavours, are driven by the motto of the institute Bahumukhvikaso gantavya (बहुमुखविकाससो गन्तव्य), which signifies the pursuit of multifaceted and holistic development.

I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to look at us.

Thank you for your continued support.
