It gives me immense pleasure to take this opportunity to invite you to the Placement Program at XLRI School of Business and Human Resources, Jamshedpur. The time has come again for us to expose the best minds we have, to the outer world that waits to test and absorb the talent radiating from every individual. I assure you that your expectations will not just be met, but will be surpassed substantially. The student mix is hand-picked from some of the most diverse walks of life. This diversity has resulted in experiential learning and appreciation of varied cultures and tastes. The curriculum here has been dynamically aligned to the needs and aspirations of the industry to ensure that students not just imbibe academic concepts but develop the requisite analytical and decision-making skills to be the leaders in the ever changing world of business.
Change - That word sure has a lot of meaning and purpose for all of us here at XLRI. It is the premise on which the academic programs are designed to be effective. The curriculum is constantly updated to reflect the latest happenings in the business world. In line with this tradition, our flagship course 'Personnel Management in Industrial Relations (PMIR)' has now been re-christened to Human Resource Management (HRM). The distinguished faculty at XLRI, which forms the most impacting clout in academic and consulting circles, has taken the pains to ensure that every student is constantly acclimatised to the dynamics of change and takes his rightful place amongst the future change drivers of the industry. I welcome you to experience this change. XLRI has maintained an aura of culture and legacy over six decades of innovative growth and excellence. Having stamped its class in academic and corporate circles, the alumni of XLRI today don the most challenging and demanding roles in the industry - India and abroad. This is testimony to the trust and belief that the industry has bestowed in us for years and more importantly is a commitment from XLRI to deliver the best consistently.
This journey from darkness to light for the students would not be possible but for the strong bond that XLRI shares with the business world. We look forward to forging stronger bonds of co-operation to traverse unchartered territories of excellence.
Welcome home to XLRI!
