Welcoming the students, Fr. E. Abraham, S.J., Director, XLRI impressed upon the challenge of socio-economic transition that India is facing and said “In these times of Post-Trump, Post-Brexit and Post-Truth and high oil prices it seems nations, organizations, and educational institutions like ours and also all of us as individuals have to be prepared for any non-linear, macro socio-economic eventuality.”


He also highlighted upon the fact that XLRI, besides being a higher learning institution is also a social institution. Fr. Abraham also advised the new students to start thinking about addressing socio-business challenges and pursue their entrepreneurial dreams while at XLRI.


Introducing the new batch of students to the accomplished faculty members of the institute, Dr. Ashis K Pani, Dean of Academics, XLRI commented, “ A unique feature in the first term will be the Village Exposure Programme and the Outbound Programme. Both the programmes have been designed to create awareness among the students of life in rural India, as well as the importance of team spirit. Such an integral and value-based formation will impel the future managers to be innovative, competent and creative leaders.”


The new students will have to undergo a Special Orientation Programme to update their knowledge and prepare for the upcoming classes.
