XLRI was founded in 1949 by Fr Quinn Enright, S.J. in the Steel City of Jamshedpur. Fr. Enright visualized XLRI to be a partner in

the liberation and development journey of the independent India with a vision of “renewing the face of the earth”. Fr. Bill Tome joined

hands with him to bring that vision to fruition. Both, together with the other Jesuit companions, worked tirelessly towards translating

the Vision “Renewing the face of the earth” into action.

During the fi rst seven years of growth, several courses of management and trade unions were developed and organized by the institute.

In the year 1953, the 2 year full time industrial relations program was started which is now the most widely acclaimed Personal

Management and Industrial Relation (PM & IR) course. In the year 1968 the 2 year full time business management (BM) course

was introduced and it is now one of the most sought after programs. To mark the fi fty years of service to the executive world,

XLRI started the three year executive post graduate program in the year 2001. It started the three-years Executive Postgraduate

programme in Business Management (Singapore) and the International Student Exchange Programme (ISEP) in 2006. In 2007

the one-year Postgraduate Program (PGP) in Management and Insurance (with ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Company), 12

months Postgraduate Certifi cate (PGC) in Retail Management (Satellite based live classrooms across the country) and the 12 months

Postgraduate Certifi cate (PGC) in Sales & Marketing Management (Satellite based live classrooms across the country) was started.

CII Young Indians

It is a student body which is a part of the CII”s Yi initiative.

CII’s Yi (Young India) Net was formed at the XLRI with the

formal signing of MoU between XLRI director E. Abraham and

Jay Kamani, the chairperson of Yi Net in Jamshedpur on April

04, 2008.

Yi is a group comprising young Indian entrepreneurs, businessmen,

managers and professionals who unite under one roof with the

objective of creating a better future for the Indian youth and

to bridge the gap between the diff erent sections of society. Th e

focus areas of YiNet include economy, education, environment,

healthcare, youth aff airs and employment. Some of the unique

movements launched by YiNet across the country are fund-

raising events for developmental projects, rural education, AIDS

awareness work and several others. CII would also help students

organise several knowledge-sharing platforms with company

chiefs, corporate behemoths and young political leaders.


Th e tiny glow of a candle fi lls the room with light. Such is the

nature of light. We at XLRI believe in bringing light beyond the

horizons of India. ISEP, the student body representative of the

International student exchange program helps in the same. Every

year they help students to study abroad in one of the foreign

institutes that XLRI has a tie up with. Th e vision of the body is

“To provide every XLer an opportunity to gain an international

exposure and enrich their academic experience by providing an

international perspective to”. In the year 2008, the program had

15 partners and 45 seats. Th e student body aims at strengthen

existing collaborations, identify and negotiate with new partners,

organize the exchange program for XLRI students, ensure that

the incoming students blend in well with the rich academic and

cultural environment at XLRI by organizing buddy programs,

orientation and industrial visits. Th ey also organize short

term study tours for foreign students, explore new avenues for

scholarships and promote faculty exchange programs.


Th e strength of light is felt more in places where darkness

has prevailed for most of the time. At XLRI we have a social

Initiative Group for Managerial Assistance (SIGMA), a student

body that creates a platform to network with NGOs, Corporate

Governance cells & Government Departments for the purpose

of community capacity building. Th e main aim of this student

body is to help NGOs formulate eff ective fund-raising strategies,

develop new programs, curtail expenses and perform better. In

essence, they work together for a better tomorrow. Th ey have

worked with 17 NGOs on 21 live projects involving 73 students,

they have started the BCLP – Computer literacy program for

50 village youth. Th ey have started the unique Shilp Mela –

Marketing platform for NGOs.


“A sound mind in a sound body to keep the light in all as bright

as ever”; this has always been a school of thought at XLRI.

SportsComm, a student body at XLRI aims to help nurture

sports on campus. Th ey perform various functions like providing

and maintaining sports infrastructure on campus, conducting

sports events, procure equipment for players and arrange Sports/

Game coaching camps.

Committees on Campus


Page 12: Placement Brochure 09






Th e plays of lights and shadows have dimensions that can be

enacted by the most talented of us. Dracula, the dramatics and

cultural committee of XLRI works towards bringing alive on

campus these plays. Th ey conduct a gamut of cultural events,

dance, FANGS and theatre shows. Th e organization of large

scale events like rock shows and inter B-School quizzes provides

a hands on event management experience to future managers.


Branding ones alma mater is indeed an honor and an instant

of immeasurable joy. Th e shadow that follows every student of

XLRI is in itself his/her biggest asset. Th e integrity and harmony

that is developed amongst students in the years of their study,

extends beyond just their 2 years. Th e institute garners this

harmony beyond campus and brands itself through the student

body, External Linkages. Th e body performs various activities

like events, the play ‘Th e Shadows Within’, convocation, silver

jubilee alumni reunion and village trip & adventure camp. It

conducts alumni meets all over the world and keeps the “XL

Mafi a” connected.


Th e nature and adventure club of XLRI, XLANC conducts

various activities to encourage the adventure spirit of the

students. From bird watching to face painting, from term break

exploration to Meghalaya they conduct adventure camps, treks,

parasailing, rappelling, wall climbing and various other activities.

Annually they conduct quest adventura; the only event to be held

“on air, water and land”, across all B schools. Th e competitions

test leadership, strategy, teamwork, brawn and skill of students.


Th e library is the largest abode of knowledge in any institution.

Th e commitment to keep this vast resource updated, appropriate

and available for the student committee is carried out by the

student body, LIBCOMM.


XLRI is a home away from home to every student. Th e student

body INFRACOMM, ensures that every individuals needs

are satisfi ed to the best of the institutes capabilities. It ensures

that mess, hostel and other basic amenities are maintained and

provided to all. Th is job counts for handling the permanent

and how it can help in the creation of value for the fi rm. What is unique about XLRI is that it off ers its students

constantly evolving to match the pace of the hour. Electives like those on Microfi nance are off ered by few other

been one of the biggest attractions at XLRI and the student committee FINAX, facilitates in nurturing this

interest and enthusiasm enriching the learning process. Th e learning completes its circle with the internship

experience wherein students have gained and applied their understanding in projects as diverse as those relating

to trading, credit, equity, mergers, treasury and equity research.

MarketingMarketing has been the forte of XLRI. XLRI over the years has built for itself an image for bringing forth a pool

of talented and knowledgeable students, aspiring to make a niche for themselves in the pulsating and exciting

domain of Marketing. Th e industry faces a constant turmoil of change-be it in the form of changing trends or

changing preferences and perceptions. Th e curriculum and pedagogy has thus, been crafted with a built-in

fl exibility, to meet the demands of the global dynamics. A special focus is made to ensure that knowledge

inculcated is not isolated from the real practices and hence, active student participation is entailed through active

learning. Students have over the years, picked up the fundamentals and nuances, skills and attributes in marketing

and applied the same, be it in the campus activities of the Marketing Association of XLRI, Maxi or in the course

of their internship in exciting projects, with the best of the industry. XLRI has prided itself with the innovation

of ‘MAXI Fair’ (estd: 1977) as an innovative way for companies to solve marketing research problems. Some of

them have even used the fair to launch products. Th e confl uence of a great talent pool and rigorous pedagogy

has resulted in a string of distinguished alumni from this domain, leaving its footprints across the globe in some

of the most esteemed fi rms and business organizations.

accredited market research tool. While students try to extract unbiased consumer perceptions and preferences, elicit meaningful

information they actually gain insights which inculcate the fi ner aspects of Marketing. Events like these are complemented with live

projects and industry interaction with experts. MAXI ensures that the business school experience is fi lled with exciting events which

make learning more challenging and close to practice.

Strategy & ConsultingStrategy and consulting, over the years, has carved a niche segment for itself in the market. In today’s extremely

competitive environment, the need to diff erentiate oneself from one’s competitors is of paramount importance.

It is therefore the need of the hour, to have managers equipped with skills and mindsets that will foster quick

understanding of the businesses and their environment, thereby enabling quick decisions. XLRI has recognised

this need and has established a focussed course designed to imbibe in its students the ability to understand and

analyse businesses with respect to their environment, and to promote out of the box thinking. Due to the

pulsating and dynamic nature of businesses, and factors that infl uence it, the strategy & consulting courses at

XLRI are designed to evolve with the market requirements. Th e faculty, deeply respected by companies around

the globe, is involved with several consulting projects in the private and public domain and brings to the students

a plethora of knowledge enriched by their experience in the fi eld.

General ManagementGeneral Management, as a sphere of activity, is concerned with the leadership and management of any business

as a whole. Here, at XLRI, we understand the importance of inculcating in our students the values and qualities

necessary for eff ective general management. Th e course is structured to encompass these very values, and to

expose students to philosophies and strategies that sustain successful enterprises. At the core of the study in this

fi eld, is the focus on ethics and corporate citizenship, as we understand the linkage between the enterprise and

the broader community.

Th e Placement Offi ce is managed by the Placement Committee which consists of student representatives. A placement Chairperson

is selected from the faculty. Th e activities of the Placement Committee include coordinating for the Summer Internship Program,

the Lateral Recruitment Program & the Campus Recruitment Program. It corresponds with the prospective employers, arranges

Pre-Placement Talks and Personal Interviews on campus and provides all the facilities required by the visiting companies.


Building Campus Presence

A successful recruiting eff ort is possible only when the students know you better. XLRI off ers you many opportunities to help build a

good corporate image among the students. Th e following are our recommendations for the same.

Pre-placement Talks (PPTs)

Th e pre-placement talks are presentations organized by the company on the college campus. Over the years, they have become the

primary forums for company-student interaction. Th ese talks give the student a chance to learn more about your company, your

people and your work culture. Th e students can also learn about the opportunities for growth, learning and advancement that your

company off ers. Th ey can also form a fi rst-hand impression of your company and can make an informed decision about applying for

the placements. We have over the years found that senior executives are the most eff ective in delivering the PPTs and also making

a strong statement of commitment to recruiting from this institute. Th e PPTs can take place on any mutually convenient day. If the

company wishes to display some promotional material on campus, the fi nal form of the material can be sent to the Placement Offi ce,

which will arrange for its display.

Distributing the Published Material

An eff ective way of creating awareness about your company among the students is to provide them with information. Th e information

could be in the form of annual reports, company brochures, pamphlets, research material and other published information. Th e

placement offi ce will ensure distribution of such material amongst the students. Th e students could also be provided with live case

studies. Th is could be done by conducting Case Contests. A panel comprising company executives with/without XLRI faculty could

evaluate the student presentations.

Conferences, Workshops, Academic Fairs

Various events, speaker series, panel discussions, conferences, workshops and academic fairs can be organized in which your company

may participate directly or contribute through partnerships. Institute scholarships and awards can also be sponsored by your company

as a way to express your companies’ commitment to excellence in the student community at XLRI.

Sponsoring Projects

Projects are an integral part of the academic curriculum at XLRI. Over the years, many students have taken up live projects with many

organizations. Th is provides the students involved, a basic understanding of the company’s operations. It also raises your companies’

profi le among students and the faculty.


Page 53: Placement Brochure 09

Th e Pre-Placement Talk

Th e company conducts the recruitment process in the Scheduled

Placement Slot. Companies are encouraged to give pre-placement

talks well before the recruitment process begins. Th is helps the

student in making an informed choice about the organization.

Ideally, the PPT must include:-

Company Profi le•

Projects on off er•

Compensation details•

Possible openings in the next year•

Th e Ranking

Th e following parameters are used to rank the companies:

Past record of recruitment•

Relationship of the company with the institute•

Career growth opportunities in the company•

Compensation off ered•

Market performance of the company•

Alumni feedback•

Since the slot arrived at is a collective decision of the students, no

request for the change of slots shall be entertained.

Student Resumes

Companies have the option of circulating their customized

application forms amongst candidates, or accepting personalized

resumes from the shortlisted candidates.

Recruitment Process

Th e company shall inform the Placement Offi ce about the

following details well in advance.

Th e Method of Recruitment (Preliminary Test, GD, • Interview, Case etc.)

Number of Rounds of the GD and group size•

Number of rounds of Interview•

Approximate duration of the GDs and Interviews•

Important Information

Th e Placement Committee, in consultation with the student body

and the faculty, arrives at the norms of the placement process.

Th e committee reserves the right to modify any such norms,

where such norms are in the overall interest of the candidates

participating in the process. In the event of any confl ict in the

interpretation and implementation of the norms, the decision of

the Placement Committee shall be binding on the students and

the companies.

Summer Internship Process

Th e placement process consists of the following stages:

Th e company conducts a Pre-Placement Talk.•

Th e resumes of the interested candidates are sent to the company.•

Th e student body ranks the companies under the supervision of the faculty chairperson.•

Th e company is informed of the day on which interviews have been scheduled based in the ranking.•

Th e company sends a shortlist of students and the Recruitment Process details to the Placement Offi ce.•
