Director Message

From Prof.Shailendra Singh’s desk-

“Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ranchi is the ninth member of the IIM family. Established by the Government of India in December 2009, we made a modest beginning with 44 students in the Post Graduate Programme in Management. With the active support of the Government of India, Government of Jharkhand, Mentoring of IIM Calcutta and strategic guidance of Board of Governors of IIM Ranchi, we have emerged as one of the fastest-growing IIMs with a combined strength of 500 students in various programs.

We aspire to develop IIM Ranchi as one of the top 10 management institutes in the Asian Region within the next 10 years through teaching excellence and thought leadership. At IIM Ranchi we plan to attain thought leadership through a fusion of eastern wisdom and western processes and focusing on research which is both rigorous and contextually relevant. We also develop teaching excellence through participant-centred learning including technologically enabled and experiential pedagogies.

At IIM Ranchi, we are committed to grooming leaders with value-based education. Our emphasis is eclectic growth of our participants. We try to inculcate the values of humility, honesty and hard work for individual and corporate success. We also endeavour for the holistic development of individuals, institutions and society at large. We expose our students to the experiences and case studies for developing the perspective of harmonious coexistence with society and the environment. 

We have many tasks ahead to make IIM Ranchi a world-class institution. Our main task is to build a permanent campus on the land provided by the Jharkhand Government with the state of the art facilities. We are also in the process of recruiting faculty members to develop higher in-house capacity and capability. We need to create the right environment for strong research focus by the faculty members.

I am looking forward to your cooperation and support for making IIM Ranchi a success on a sustained basis.”
