We are what we repeatedly do; excellence,


then, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle
The excellent feedback we received from our recruiters on the quality of students, their knowledge on
subject and analytical skills are testimonies to the standard of education at IIM Ranchi. It also reflects on the
confidence the industry has on this institution. Some students have opted out of the process to venture on
their entrepreneurial journey, join their family businesses and pursue higher studies, while those on a
sabbatical have rejoined their firms in high quality management profiles.
