The Indian Institute of Management Ranchi (Hindi: भारतीय प्रबंध संस्थान, राँची), abbreviated IIM Ranchi or IIM-R, is a public business school located in Ranchi, Jharkhand. It is the ninth Indian Institute of Management to be established. It was inaugurated on 6th July, 2010. 
The 11th Five-Year Plan, endorsed by the National Development Council in December 2007, envisaged the establishment of seven new IIMs. Aimed at generating both highly competent and highly trained manpower, the institutes are also expected to act as a major catalyst for developing a knowledge society that would inevitably impact the economic growth of the country.
IIM Ranchi, like all IIMs, is an autonomous institution under Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India. The institute is free to design its own curriculum and recruit faculty members. In April 2011, Union Minister Kapil Sibal announced that the government is mulling enhancement of the autonomy of IIMs by allowing them to select the director and the chairman of Board of Directors.
IIM Ranchi is amongst the six new IIMs that were approved by the Union Cabinet on August 27, 2009.
This college is operating from a temporary campus in Suchana Bhavan, behind the Governor House premises in the heart of Ranchi. The construction of a permanent campus has been initiated at Birhar village on the Khunti-Karra road, about 35 kilometres (22 mi) from Ranchi.In July 2013,Jharkhand government allotted 90.14 acres (36.48 ha) of land free of cost to IIM Ranchi (IIM-R) at Cheri in Kanke block, 20 km from Ranchi. On July 29,2013, the Union Minister of Human Resource Development Shri Pallam Raju laid the foundation stone of IIM-Ranchi at Cheri.
Like other IIMs, IIM Ranchi awards only diplomas, and not degrees. The programmes offered are post graduate programmes at a level equivalent to MBA and PhD and include a standard post graduate diploma in management (PGDM), human resource management (PGDHRM), a full-time doctoral programme (FPM) and a part-time executive program (PGEXP). The two-year Post-graduate Diploma in Management, equivalent to an MBA, is the flagship education program which aims to prepare young graduates for senior-level positions in industry. The institute stresses on an indigenous rigorous evaluation system and encourages involvement in self-study, group work, open-ended discussions and real-life projects. The institute has also greatly emphasized social endeavours, inner development, ethics & long-term sustainability, and claims to distinguish itself from other IIMs in offering greater freedom and meaningful challenges to students in their intellectual pursuits. The Fellow Programme in Management is a four-year fully residential doctoral-level programme in which students are trained to join academia, corporate consulting or management research on graduation. The institute's Executive Management Education Programmes and shorter programmes like Management Development are meant for enhancing managing potential of working professionals. IIM Ranchi became the first & only IIM in the country to offer PGDM-HR.
Conclaves and conferences
Colloquium is an annual series of guest lectures, where students of IIM Ranchi get an opportunity to interact with the industry leaders in finance, marketing, operations and HR. IIM Ranchi believes that its students should have an idea about the industry scenario while they are at their nascent stage of learning the concepts required to manage an organisation. This would not only help the students to acquire domain knowledge, but would also help them develop the necessary soft skills required to be business ready. 
IIM Ranchi being the only IIM to offer specialised course in Human Resource Management, have organised two HR conclaves themed as “Turning the tide on unrest in workforce “ in 2012 and “Holistic Development of Hu¬man Capital” in 2011.

The PGP course is being delivered by the world renowned faculty of IIM Calcutta in its formative years. Faculty members fly from Kolkata to Ranchi and alter between teaching at these two IIMs.
The clubs and the committees on campus cover diverse interests from finance and marketing to literature, theatre and nature, going beyond the confines of the classroom and the curriculum. These clubs plan to organize various events and workshops throughout the year, to ensure that the extra-curricular scene is dynamic. Apart from providing an avenue for students to showcase their talents, these clubs also encourage students to take the initiative in organizing events and set standards of excellence in various areas.
