IIM Ranchi, like all other IIMs, is an autonomous institution under the 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 the board of directors.

IIM Ranchi is amongst the six new IIMs that were approved by the Union Cabinet on 27 August 2009. M. J. Xavier was the founding director of the institute.

The programme saw 500+ unique applications from across India, out of which a cohort of 95 youngsters participated in the 3-day flagship event on the IIM Ranchi campus. [14]

Participants were selected through rigorous shortlisting stages involving application review and quizzes. Ultimately, 300 of the most promising candidates advanced to the interview stage; 80 received the final offer letter. These included international participants representing 10 nations — South Korea, Singapore, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, the UAE, the US, the US etc. The organizers instituted new features to YCP 2.0, Travel and other costs for bright students from the Pestalozzi Children's Village Society, Dehradun were born through an internal fundraiser to ensure their participation. Besides financial aid, the Catalyst Partners Initiative also came into being, which aims to equip high-school teachers to replicate their own regional rural immersion bootcamps under the YCP banner. Various ceremonies of the 5-day programme saw the presence of eminent guests, including Dr Andrew Fleming, Sri Siddharth Tripathi IFS, Padma Shree & Padma Vibhushan Anil Joshi, and Padma Shree Ashok Bhagat.
