ExPGDM At a glance

The genesis of XLRI began when Fr. Quinn Enright, S.J in 1949 laid the cornerstone of one of the most celebrated management institutions of India, XLRI. Along with Fr. Bill Tome and other Jesuits, Fr. Quinn with the vision of "Renewing the face of the earth", meticulously transformed the institution into a Brand which is now respected worldwide.

In the journey of transformation, XLRI didn't just follow others but opened new vistas of management education. For XLRI, catering to the needs of the people and nation is the most vital philosophy. The teaching methodology empowers students to think beyond the possible, providing guidance and industry-related learning, thereby enabling students to become future leaders with a human touch.

XLRI offers a fifteen-month full-time residential management program ExPGDM , previously known as GMP. Students having a minimum of five years of experience in varied fields like IT/ITES, Energy and Power, Automobile, Manufacturing and other Industry domains are crystallised into modern corporate warriors. The course enables students to grasp the latest in management theory, broadens perspectives and launches them into new avenues of problem-solving. XLRI's deep commitment to nation-building is demonstrated year on year as the program nurtures socially responsible change.

This is one of the flagship programs offered by XLRI and this program has received prestigious accreditations including AMBA, AICTE and others alike. The superlative course structure, combined with the substantial work experience of the participants makes them highly sought after by the industry post-graduation.
