For over six decades, thousands of post-graduate management students have graduated from the portals of XLRI and rendered yeoman service to organizations and institutions across public and private sectors and various other walks of life. Very few management schools in India have the DNA that XLRI possesses given its understated Jesuit management background and the emphasis the institute lays on ethical and responsible conduct by its alumni.

It is a proud moment for us to welcome them back to the campus and felicitate them for their achievements.”

Apart from the quality education, infrastructure, affiliation with Industry, etc. brand XLRI has also been greatly strengthened by the number of alumni holding key positions across the globe in academia and industry and the power that they wield.”

Questions related to XLRI
Hii, i just want to know that could i get in between fms or xlri . i am from non-engineering background and i have score in 10th is 71 and in 12th is 53 and cat score is 95 percentile . mostly i want to go fms , could i get it ?
Sorry to say but the academic score you have mentioned is pretty low. And as you have not specified your category I am considering it to be Open category and I am answering according to it. The FMS cut off for general category usually ranges from 97 and above percentile. So I guess it might be difficult for you to get a call from FMS. As far as XLRI is concerned, you will have to quality XAT, conducted by the college itself, to be eligible for admission.
Hope that helps.
Can you tell me how much percentile required to get into SP Jain, NITIE Mumbai, and XLRI? Is there any chance of mine getting into an IIMs or any other goverment colleges if yes my academic records are X - 60.8% , XII - 63.6% And UG - 72.77% .
Basically to get admission in top IIM'S you will have to get at last 99 percentile or above, still there is no guarantee that you will achieve it.
Yop IIM's follows two different set of rules. One for Initial calling and otehr for Final Selection. For Initial calling they give 35%-40% weightage to your previous credentials and 60 to 65 to CAT score.
For Final calling they give 10% -20% only and remaining is given to GD, PI and CAT score.
For XLRI you will have to XAT. For SP Jain you need 90-92.
All the best!!
I got 91%/58%/62% in 10th,12th and graduation respectively. I am from SC category. can it be possible to convert admission into any of iims, fms and xlri? how much i will get from 5% of my 12th with 58% marks?
IIms. XLRI and FMS are the top management colleges of India which provide approx 90% campus placement. Most of the students are willing to get admission in these college as these are the best. IIMs are taking students from CAT and XLRI and FMS take the students from their own entrance exam.
Getting admission in management college not only depends on your entrance exam results. It comprises of different curricular activities like Group Discussion, Personal Interview and some colleges also set some points on 10, 12 and graduation marks of the students.
As your 12th and graduation marks are no so strong but you can still get admission in these college, Firstly you have to crack their entrance exam so that they allow you to appear in GD and PI. If you have good speaking as well as thinking skill then you definitely cracks their GD and PI. So don't panic for your less marks in 12th and Graduation. Never loose your hope.
I have good academic scores till graduation (B.Tech), but i had to be jobless for over an year due to some issues. Am I eligible for XLRI selection if I prepare for the next six months?
Vijay, XLRI offers various courses like:
PGDM in Human Resources Management
PGDM in Business Management Programme
PGDM in General Management Programme.
PGDM in General Management Programme needs Candidates to have atleast 5 years of work experience and so you have to concentrate on the other 2 courses. According to the official website https://www.xlri.ac.in/academic-programmes/admission-procedure/overview.aspx, the selection criteria depends on various factors but what rules the list is your Academic profile and your XAT score. If you can achieve good XAT score with already good Academic records, being selected shouldn't be a huge task. To boos your profile you can also learn some relevant courses from SWAYAM MOOC. This will add value to your profile as well.
i have 10th 71 and 12th is 52 .can i get admition in xlri,iims
B-schools in India give a lot of weightage to academic marks. You have a very average score in class 10th and 12th hence for getting into XLRI or any IIM you'll have to work hard in the related entrance exam and secure a good percentile which will compensate to the loss in marks. Old IIMs would be difficult to crack because they give a lot of weightage to acads. You can eye for newer IIMs and other private B-schools in India. You can reach out to us for more help.
Hope it helps.
