Jamshedpur and Delhi campuses of XLRI to begin classes from August

Both campuses will be bound by symbiotic culture, common curriculum, and pedagogy.

Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur, and the new extension campus —XLRI Delhi-NCR are both set to commence the new academic session from August . With its strategic expansion to the national capital, XLRI looks forward to inspire students to become responsible business leaders shaping a sustainable future.

“With the launch of the new XLRI campus in Delhi-NCR, the XLRI family just got extended. Our extension campus at Delhi-NCR is envisioned as ‘an integral part’ of the Jamshedpur campus and not as standalone campuses like other management institutes. These complementing satellite campuses and the student community therein would get the same opportunities and privileges as the Jamshedpur campus. Moreover, they would be bound together by a symbiotic culture and a synergized relationship. Though physically apart, the satellite campuses are and will be one entity and an intrinsic part of the XLRI family striving for the greater common good of the society at large,” said P Christie SJ, Director, XLRI, Jamshedpur.

Shared values

The Jamshedpur and Delhi campuses are two entities of XLRI, one institutional brand, that will be overseen by a common Board of Governors. Besides having in place a common curriculum, syllabus, pedagogy, e-library facilities, and a joint placement process for summer internships and final placements, even the standard XAT admission process would integrate the students of both the campuses.

George Sebastian, SJ, Director, XLRI, Delhi-NCR, added, “We are determined to provide all our students the same high-quality management education and the same set of training sessions. We have full faith in our esteemed members of the faculty serving at the XLRI Jamshedpur campus to pass on the same culture and values to all the aspiring business leaders at the new campus in Delhi-NCR. Access, availability, and deployment of faculty from Jamshedpur, and all the common resources available would essentially establish the pedagogy of XLRI in both the campuses.”
