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 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.
