chairman's message
Dear Friends, The Indian economy has been growing at a robust pace despite the crisis in the euro zone as well as the shaky economic conditions in many parts of the world. New manufacturing capacities are being created and foreign investors are seeing attractive business opportunities in this country. The employment potential is growing, especially for professionals with good education and skills. The Product of the institutes of Management have always been in high demand, and I expect this situation to continue for many years in the future. IIM Ranchi, a new institution which started PGP classes in 2010, has come out with two successful summer placement reports and its first batch will soon step into the corporate world. The Board of Governors are determined that it should grow into an institution of excellence, where the quality education and the campus experience compares with the best management schools in India. Being new gives us the opportunity to learn from the experience of other IIMs and incorporate changes which will help us move faster towards our goal. The faculty of IIM Calcutta and XLRI Jamshedpur has been helping us to develop all our educational systems. I believe we could not have found a better way to start and eventually develop into an institution of excellence. We are also exploring possible ways of mobilizing funds which can be used for furthering the objective of attaining academic excellence. We have already started attracting some experienced and reputed faculty to IIM Ranchi so that they can take over from the faculty of IIMC and continue to strengthen our systems, and the quality of teaching. The Board and I look forward to the continued support from industry and business organizations in India and abroad to our Endeavour to develop bright, young and highly motivated managers for them. Best Wishes.

director's message
Dear All, IIM Ranchi has come a long way from the time it was started in 2010. The student intake has been doubled, and we have started a new 18 months part-time programme for working professionals. From the year 2012 we are adding two new programmes, namely, full-time Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) and another two year Post graduate Programme in Human Resources Management (PGDHRM). In terms of infrastructure, we have added new class-rooms and hostel facilities. We have been allotted land by the Government of Jharkhand on a prime location on the Ring road of Ranchi. We are going to set up the most modern facility in this new location and is expected to become operational from 2014. We are committed to our mission of holistic development of our students, region and the society at large and attainment of thought leadership through erudite fusion of western processes and eastern wisdom. We believe in holistic, active and life-long learning. As someone said, the heart of education is education of the heart. Consequently our curriculum, pedagogy, processes and technology have been designed to create a modern gurukul. Our students, staff and faculty dearly value humility, honesty and hard-work. We strive to make our students better human beings and prepare them to manage their entire life effectively. Our recruiters have a lot of appreciation for our students for their ability to work in a team and their focus on value creation for the organization and its stakeholders. We welcome people who are different and want to make a difference. With best wishes.

dean's message
Dear Friends, In just two years since it was established, IIM Ranchi is well on its way to carving an enviable niche for itself. This third generation IIM is driven by three fold objectives: (1) to provide education based upon a blend of oriental wisdom with western management thought, models and practices; (2) to create leaders and managers who are not only equipped with the knowledge, techniques and perspectives to resolve managerial dilemmas, but also, are socially connected and ethically grounded; and (3) to become a globally pre-eminent school excelling in cutting edge research and knowledge creation. Its key differentiator is not just the modern and progressive curriculum or even the galaxy of leading faculty drawn from all over the world. Instead, it is the emphasis on knowledge, not just as a mastery, but, as a tool for puzzle and problem solving. This it seeks to bring about through a combination of the traditional didactic methods of lectures with problem based experiential learning (case analysis, projects, simulations, case writing, internship, guest speakers presenting corporate problems, competitions for business planning and problem solving). The learning happens through communities of peers and faculty. Most of the student related activities are managed by the students themselves through committees and clubs in an atmosphere of voluntarism and participation. From the very beginning, students are impressed upon the need to be open to personalization. At one end personalization is at the level of enhancing understanding of one's mind and soul along with their complementarities in the development of the Self, and at the other end, it is in choosing a portfolio of electives in tune with ones' chosen career area. Overall, IIM Ranchi seeks to create and nurture a corporate citizen who has the right knowledge, skills and attitude to manage uncertainties, resolve ambiguities and lead ethically in this hypercompetitive, hyper turbulent, diverse and globalized world. It is my belief that the script has already been written, the setting is already in place. All that is required now is for you to be in our learning community. Welcome to IIM Ranchi.

vision, mission and core values


Indian management education has largely been shaped by theories and models developed in the western world, particularly the United States of America. With the economic liberalization process initiated by the Government of India in the early 90s the demand for management education has been on the rise in India. We now have more than 3000 Institutions that offer management education in the country. With stagnation in the enrollment in the West, several internationally reputed schools are eying on the Indian market for more students. In this context, IIM Ranchi cannot be yet another business school offering the typical US model of education. Interestingly, the Western scholars like Warren Bennis and James OToole, Henry Mintzberg, Jeffrey Pfeffer and Christina Fong, Harry DeAngelo, Linda DeAngelo and Jerry Zimmerman have observed several flaws in the management education and are on the lookout for new formats. For example, most of us would agree with the observation by Pfeffer and Fong that management educators have lost their souls and that altruistic values have been supplanted by a show-me-the-money mindset among MBA students. Lack of industry relevance, loss of scholarly focus, over emphasis on competition, fixation upon MBA programme ranking and money-by-any means attitude are some of the key comments made by these scholars. Ms D Purandeswari, Minister of State for Human Resource Development, made the following observation during the inauguration of the golden jubilee celebrations of IIMC : "The recent corporate scams have raised serious questions on the usefulness of management education. Critics maintain that management education in leading business schools create profit seekers who have scant respect for social development." All these point to the fact that MBA education is at the cross-roads and we have a great opportunity to develop a new format that is holistic and would have universal appeal and reach. It is heartening to note that several scholars in India already have developed path breaking theories on management based on our Epics and Vedas. Spirituality and management are being researched not only in India, but by scholars around the world. We also have unique Indian case studies and models that are used by b-schools around the world. However, it will be premature to discard the western models . Consequently, the vision for IIM Ranchi has been built on the concept of erudite fusion of 'western processes and technologies for knowledge creation and dissemination' and 'wisdom of the east' for holistic development of students, businesses and the society at large.

The type of research centers that could be considered under the three major areas are shown in the picture above. For example, most management pundits predict that analytics and neuro-management are the areas that are going to be key drivers of management research in

the near future. Analytics typically plays a key role in making meaning out of the large volumes of data that are captured by organizations using automation tools such as ERP, SCM and CRM. We could collaborate with leading IT companies, such as IBM, TCS, HCL or HP, for the analytics center. Neuro-management is relatively a new

can collaborate with the Institute of Psychiatry in Ranchi for this center. The Director Dr Nizamie is keen to take this forward. Center for Research in Indian Management would work on India-specific issues and would have a high-powered advisory board comprising of people like Prof S K Chakraborty, Dr R A Mashelkar (author of Gandhian

The Center for Social Inclusion will carry out research on inclusive growth and offer programs for NGOs. As the Jharkhand economy depends greatly on Mining and Manufacturing, the center for this sector is very relevant for IIM Ranchi. Chairmen of Coal India, HEC, MECON and SAIL would be requested to join the advisory board of the same. As a relatively young state Jharkhand has a substantial need for training of its people on eGovernance. This will also open up new opportunities for Government funded projects in the same area.

The inter-play between these three areas would lead to synthesis of new knowledge that would help us arrive at new formats for management education.

research on western models. To be relevant for the local environment in which we operate, we need to carry out research on local managerial issues. The inter-play between these three areas would lead to synthesis of new knowledge that would help us arrive at new formats for management education.

The remotely located hostel is connected to the academic block through a Virtual Private Network (VPN). The hostel area also has 24x7 network access through Wi-Fi as well

Continuing the tradition of excellence in management education, as represented by the Indian Institutes of Management, Indian Institute of Management was established in Ranchi in 2010. IIM Ranchi has been set up to serve the increasing demand for quality managers in the corporate world, whilst striving for excellence and working towards its core value of inclusive growth for the greater good. This was made possible with the extensive support of the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta and the Government of Jharkhand, working under the guidance of HRD Ministry, Government of India. The vision of IIM Ranchi is based on the concept of erudite fusion of western process and technologies for knowledge creation and dissemination and wisdom of the east for holistic development of students, business and society at large. The idea is to develop thought leadership by blending both the analytical approaches of the West and the values and wisdom of the East. Our curriculum for programs, research areas and other activities of the institute reflect the above vision. The logo of IIM Ranchi for instance is about holistic development. This logo unit is inspired from the most common and intelligent bird, the crow, which in many

cultures is the keeper of knowledge, for nothing escapes their keen sight. Crows can survive in any climate and are known for their harmonious community living. This is the ethos of IIM Ranchi which beleives in working together, growing together and bringing a change / being a catalyst for change together. In this logo option the bird has been created in a manner that it looks like a forward arrow, taking everybody (the three green strokes here symbolize the community) along together for the flight, hence giving IIM Ranchi logo unit a very positive approach and still being grounded. IIM Ranchi currently offers a two year PGDM as its flagship programme and has launched PGPEX in 2011 for working executives. Fellow Programme in Management and PGDHRM are being inaugurated in the coming academic year. It is the first IIM to initiate a programme dedicated to the HR field. The course outline of all the programmes has been meticulously designed, and the courses are delivered by faculty of the Institute and those drawn from the Industry and other leading Institutions in India and abroad. The course structure incorporates the updated and evolving needs of modern management, recognized and incorporated by the unique approach of teaching and learning at the IIMs, which sets them apart from other

Post-Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM)


Background
The success of IIMs can be attributed to their ability to change their curriculum to suit the changing needs of the business and industry. We have seen several tectonic shifts in the PGDM course in the past. When Japan was reveling in its economic glory in the 80s, we introduced courses on Japanese Management. Major revamping happened in the early 90's when the forces of globalization swept the country. We added more courses on Competition and Globalization and included case studies from the West in order to produce graduates capable of managing global corporations. The changes initiated in the last 20 years have made our curriculum synonymous with that of the top US business schools. Currently the Western schools are trying to retool as they were widely criticized for contributing to the current economic crisis by producing MBAs that are focused on creating shareholder value and high risk strategies instead of sustainable practices and stakeholder responsibility. It has become increasingly apparent that adding a few courses on sustainability or ethics will not solve the crisis of leadership, governance and trust. IIM Ranchi curriculum has been designed, taking into consideration the following aspects: While the hard elements (analytic tools) may be universally applicable, the soft elements (values, attitudes etc.) need to be culture specific. A manager should have a broader understanding of the context in which businesses operate. With the power-shift to the east, particularly India and China, we have a great opportunity to develop models that are likely to have Universal value. Align courses with the institute's vision of holistic development and erudite fusion to attain thought leadership.

Post-Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management (PGDHRM)


Background
The operating environment for business is characterized with unprecedented discontinuity as a result of complexities, hyper-turbulence and ambiguities triggered first by globalization and the revolutions in information and communication technologies and heightened now by the economic and financial uncertainties. Intertwined with political, macro-economic and social dynamics in their economies, the corporations and their managers are under humungous pressure to keep pace with rapid technological advances, global competition and new, and at times shifting, government policy initiatives. Numerous studies have shown that in order to succeed in the next orbit, firms must be perpetually prepared, flexible and innovative and have abilities to continually build capability, manage partner eco-system and manage change. The demographic landscape and "millenials" expectations have also required organizations to develop novel ways to organize and reward work. In this transition to the next curve, HR has to become strategic and be inextricably weaved into business. More importantly it is to be realized that HR cannot be for the sake of HR. HR today has to be for the sake of future. The PGDHRM at IIM Ranchi is premised on the understanding of this paradigmatic shift. It is posited on a pedagogy and course curriculum that seeks to provide to its participants breadth and depth of business knowledge, mastery of HR management concepts and awareness, appreciation and understanding of the application of HR learning and practices in a business context.

The event sought to embolden the spirit of freedom and to provide a platform for young and enthusiastic minds to vent out their love and respect for the nation. The name of the event itself signifies the arrival of IIM Ranchi and with it a new beginning to shape the minds of the youth. AARAMBH, started off with 'Freedom Run', a five kilometer marathon. It was flagged off at the main gate of the Khelgaon Hostel in the morning of the auspicious day. The core theme of the Freedom Run was to keep the spirit of patriotism alive and to give expression to the fervor of people towards democracy and nation building. People from all walks of life - students, college staff, military and paramilitary personnel and local residents wholeheartedly participated in the event. Freedom Run was followed by the flag hoisting ceremony when everybody paid tribute to Mother India. Soon after this central event, focus was shifted to Suchana Bhavan, where children from various schools in and around Ranchi, assembled to give vent to their artistic disposition. Children from different schools made their way to Suchana Bhavan to participate in the painting competition titled 'Mann Ki Udaan'.

"Unity in Diversity" was the theme around which the entire theatrics was centered.
towards more serious and thought provoking exercise of Debate titled "War of Words". It provided the platform to the country's future intellectuals to articulate their perspective and to put their oar in diverse range of issues, varying from the abstract topic "Relevance of Gandhian Philosophy in 21st century" to current economic issue of "USA's Credit Rating Downgrade by S&P". Engrossing, informative and the engaging exchange of ideas that took place mesmerized the entire audience and the judges. Any event remains inconclusive unless it has a bodacious and terrific ending. Keeping this in mind, students of IIM Ranchi presented a skit that turned out to be the icing on the cake. "Unity in Diversity" was the theme around which the entire theatrics was centered. It was quite captivating and the kind of applause they received at the end of their performance corroborated this perception. This certainly was the ultimate award that one could ask for.

Neuro Management We at IIM Ranchi firmly believe that the insight of the human mind clubbed with the management theories would not only help us becoming better managers, but also better human beings. A step in this direction was taken on 19th November, 2011 when IIM Ranchi with the collaboration of Central Institute of Psychiatry, Ranchi organized a workshop on Neuro Management.

Its not always possible to predict what makes a person successful, but with the advent of neuroscientific technologies it is now possible to map the brain's reactions and its functioning. The workshop was based on the central premise "Change the Mind, Mind the Change".

Its not always possible to predict what makes a person successful, but with the advent of neuroscientific technologies it is now possible to map the brain's reactions and its functioning. The workshop was based on the central premise "Change the Mind, Mind the Change". IIM Ranchi has tremendous faith in this endeavour and is coming out with a unique course - Neuro Management in the forthcoming year. The workshop was addressed by various dignitaries like Dr Deepali Singh from Indian Institute of Information Technology Gwalior who gave a speech on the "Finding of a Neuro Marketing study in India" and Dr Lane Wagger, International Director at Maharishi Corporate Development Programme who addressed the gathering on the neuro effects of Transcendental Meditation. The chief guest was Dr S Haque Director, Central Institute of Psychiatry. The workshop was immensely liked and succeeded in its endeavour of giving key insights about the complex thinking processes of a human mind. National Knowledge Network Indian Institute of Management Ranchi has become part of the National Knowledge Network (NKN), translating into instant connectivity with other IIMs as well as IITs to enable sharing of academic inputs. For the ambitious initiative, IIM Ranchi has been provided with NKN bandwidth of 100Mbps, with RailTel taking on the role of service provider. The network will enable knowledge sharing through virtual classrooms, access to library resources, internet browsing at lightning speed and other academic sharing activities with the IIMs and IITs to begin with, and other universities and institutes around the state in future. With all arrangements in place to start a neuro-management and other specialized courses, the institutes connected to IIM Ranchi through NKN also stand to benefit. The facility will also enable to access to lectures already delivered in prestigious institutions. The NKN was inaugurated by Mr Subas Pani, Member of the Board of Governors of IIM Ranchi. Samarpan "Samarpan", a seminar-cum-paper presentation competition, is an annual social responsibility initiative from IIM Ranchi. On December 18, 2011, it was inaugurated by Prof M J Xavier, the Director of IIM Ranchi and the inaugural speech was given by Prof Subir Verma, the Dean of IIM Ranchi. 1st year students of IIM Ranchi are required to submit projects on the social problems of Jharkhand as part of a subject called "Social Aspects of Business". The three best projects were shortlisted and cases based on these projects were placed in the public domain under the aegis of Samarpan. Papers were invited from all the colleges of Jharkhand on these cases, in a bid to know opinion of the brightest minds of Jharkhand as to how they want to go about solving the social problems of Jharkhand. The 3 cases chosen this year were related to the impact of uranium mining on the people of Jadugoda, displacement of people from HEC premises and challenges faced by rural education in Jharkhand. In its quest for the establishment and perpetuation of a just, harmonious, and prosperous society, IIM Ranchi has always strived to collaborate with various stakeholders. As the namesuggest, "Samarpan" is homage to all those who have demonstrated commendable spirit and courage to take the cause of mankind forward and a show of solidarity with those who have been victimized or have suffered due to the sharp divide that exists in our society. IIM Ranchi got an overwhelming response from the best colleges of Jharkhand. It received over 40 papers on these cases, out of which 12 papers were selected to be presented in front of an eminent panel of judges, which comprised of Prof Ramesh Saran from Ranchi University and Dr Amarendu Nandy from IIM Ranchi. After a rigorous process of presentation followed by question answer rounds, the two best papers were selected.

More than the infrastructure, buildings and other such things that give physical legitimacy to a college, what constitutes the essence and spirit of that college is the culture of the campus. The very word 'culture' might inspire some skepticism in many. A young institute laying claim to having a 'culture' right from its inception: a bluff, purists will say. Maybe the following narrative will clear up things a bit. The day for most in hostel usually starts with the shrill sounds of a plethora of instruments designed to intervene the sleep of a person who has not gone to sleep at a reasonable hour. While this might seem odd to an outsider, it's quite a norm here at IIM Ranchi. Everyone fights the urge to sleep a couple of minutes more and eventually gets out of the bed. The decision to go to class is driven by multiple reasons. It could be the excellent learning opportunities provided by the brilliant professors, the enriching case-study discussions, possibility of a pop-up quiz or even the class-participation marks! All this provides enough inspiration to take a quick shower and off to class. This mad rush to class has even spawned some interesting and quite creative ways of having breakfast, or surviving without it. Discipline and punctuality is strictly enforced by the academic committee who take their job very seriously. However, more than the rules and regulations it's the ire of your fellow classmates that keeps you on your toes. This attitude reflects in almost every other thing students do around here. Be it case study submissions or class presentations or coming to class after break, the deadline is above all. The next few hours are spent in the classroom learning concepts from Professors who are considered the best in their respective fields. Preconceived notions and past knowledge are given new dimensions when you actually start to apply what you have learnt. A lecture is a series of varied learning experiences. The professors do not limit themselves to any conventional teaching method, and regularly include personality tests, role-play situations, group games, student presentations etc in their lectures.
Admission Brochure 2012

The classes get over and the hostel comes to life with student activities. The Sports room comes alive with the cheers and jeers of students with keenly contested TT and carrom matches. Some prefer to utilize the world class sports facilities in Khelgaon - basketball, tennis courts being available for the IIM Ranchi students. Other outdoor sports like football and cricket are also quite popular among students. A few fitness freaks like to blow off their steam in the gym, and while another bunch of students start jamming in the music room others prefer to just hang around in the canteen with friends. The classes are scheduled in such a way that students will get ample time for their working on their club and committee responsibilities, co-curricular activities, participating in various business competitions, finishing the project reports, preparing presentations or anything else. IIM Ranchi students are interested in everything under the sun and have founded appropriate clubs and committees to streamline their workings. However, the culture of IIM Ranchi is such that there is no compulsion to participate in any of these activities. Every individual is free to work on anything he/she likes, or not work at all and just relax. One of the focal points of the day is the preparation for the quizzes or presentations which are scheduled almost on a daily basis or just catching up with the humongous course load of the day. It is never easy to perform here. Someone is always there to challenge you. Well the crux is that everyone here is superbly talented with a bunch of highly competitive and bright (the highest cut-offs among all IIMs ensure that) students from all across the India. This process is an integral part of our campus life. However, such fierce competition still doesn't hamper the helpful spirit of IIM Ranchi students. Thus you will find a commerce student explaining the concepts of accounting to the rest and you will also find a software engineer explaining the fundas of excel programming to somebody. The academic committee even conducts academic workshops for mutual benefit of everyone. That's how seriously we take helping our fellow mates and minimizing effor t for maximum output. Well, its 3 in the night. Most of the things done! Good time to sleep I guess. But wait, what's that mail in the mailbox?? A few solved examples for tomorrow's quiz........

what are we looking for?


Some call them drawbacks Lack of peer learning - smaller batch size We call them Opportunities Smaller batch size ensures a close-knit group in which everyone is friends with everyone else. And the lack of peer learning is more than compensated by the learning through implementation. Ranchi is strategically located within close proximity to many prominent institutes. That, with a small batch almost ensures everyone getting offers in their area of preference. Uncertainty about placements has also reduced with IIM Ranchi's 2nd batch bagging promising summer internship offers. The 1st batch of students is also getting very good responses from the industry for their final placements. IIM Ranchi has access to the best sports infrastructure as students use the Khelgaon sports complex built for the 34th national games. Both batches will vouch for security at Ranchi; it is just like any other capital city with awesome weather throughout the year.

IIM Ranchi Batch of 2014


IIM Ranchi, barely 2 years old, has established itself as a premier institution, where things are falling in place at a rapid pace. Some might look at it as a new college and may be skeptical about joining us but others will look at it as an opportunity to get hands-on experience in streamlining systems and processes. We are obviously looking for the latter.

The first two batches of IIM Ranchi are full of enthusiastic students trying to create a difference through sincere efforts in various aspects of college like placements, infrastructure, academics and many others. The amount of student involvement in these activities is unforeseen and complies with the Institutes aim of 'learning by doing'. This results in an all-round development of the individual through firsthand experience. We expect similar enthusiasm, zeal and attitude from the batch of 2012-14 as well. Every contribution from the students gets to be a part of history as we build the college brick by brick. Some of the activities include: Establishing placement activities by fostering corporate relations Maintenance and monitoring of mess and other facilities Smooth conduct of academic processes Implementation of IT infrastructure in college Developing the brand name and brand image of various clubs through regularly conducted activities Handling external media relationships with newspapers, websites, TV channels Mentorship programme for GDPI call-getters during admissions processs

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference...
