Talking about the conference, Prof. Madhukar Shukla, Chairperson, Fr Arrupe Center for Ecology & Sustainability (FACES), XLRI and the coordinator for the conference said, “Social entrepreneurship, which aims at development and implementation of innovative ideas in order to improve the social, cultural or environmental landscape, is the need of the hour. It is all about recognizing the social problems and achieving a social change by employing entrepreneurial principles, processes and operations. The two-fold aim of sustainability and societal impact can be achieved through synergistic execution, for which open communication and sharing of ideas is critical. At XLRI, we have always tried to provide the ideal platform for the exchange of ideas, to derive solutions to problems through discussions and interactions. This year’s conclave was a great success. The conclave brought together budding social entrepreneurs and students who interacted on a common platform.”

I have got a call from XLRI on scoring 95.26 percentile. what are my chances of conversion? 10th/12th/B.tech - 95/82/8.63(cgpa)

Sampriti Student Expert 22nd Jan, 2020
Your final conversation will completely depend on your performance in the GD, WAT and PI rounds. 65% weightage  is given to the XAT percentile and the rest on the GD, WAT and PI rounds. You'll have different interviews based on the programs you've applied for. Since your academic record is pretty good so with some extra effort in the selection rounds you can easily get into the college. Moreover XLRI focuses much on general business questions as per the goings on in the economy. So just focus on that and you'll be good to go.

All the very best
