A strong connection with the society will provide the edifice for value-oriented learning. This will instill in future business leaders a sensitivity that will inspire you to search for solutions to vexed socio-economic problems in the environment. It is expected that you will hold personal values and beliefs consistent with your role as responsible flag bearers of this Institution”.


Prof. Joseph addressed the new batch of students on “Future of Management Education”.


 Dr. Pani said, “XLRI is known for its academic excellence as well as instilling in its students the right values through courses, activities, events and the environment it creates. 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. The first year students will also be taken for XLRI’s compulsory Village Exposure Programme and the Outbound Programme. Both the programmes have been designed for the students to create awareness about the reality of rural India.
