The idea of introducing a post-graduate management course was to impart the core principles of the Jesuit value system and transform men and women into entrepreneurs and corporate leaders of tomorrow. Xavier Business School (XBS) is affiliated to the Xavier Association of Management Institutes (XAMI), along with all other Jesuit Management Institutes in India which includes the likes of XLRI, XIMB, LIBA, XISS etc.
XBS aims to incorporate a holistic approach to management education through its residential course of MBA. The business school has four core specialisations on offer, which include Finance, Marketing, Human Resources and Operations. Through rigorous grooming within the classroom and an application-oriented pedagogy, Xavier Business School intends to contribute to the Indian economy by producing graduates who are not only adept to take up challenges in the corporate sphere but also contribute wholesomely to the research and development of the multidisciplinary academic discipline that is management education.
Rapid globalisation and digitalisation has thrown education institutes across the globe, the challenge and the opportunity to educate, train and prepare the upcoming generation for coping up in a world, which aims to be data driven and technologically advanced. Owing to the prowess of our experienced faculty members and our associations in the industry, we at Xavier Business School have successfully integrated the purview of data science, analytics and business intelligence within the scope of our pedagogy.
Having commenced its journey in 2018, XBS has grown in leaps and bounds. The very inaugural batch of XBS achieved 94% placement and our graduates were absorbed by multinational companies, start-ups, agencies belonging to a wide array of industries.
I take this opportunity to extend my best wishes and blessings to all the past and present students of the institute. Also, with open arms, I welcome aspiring young leaders of tomorrow to be a part of this 500-year-old Jesuit legacy.
God bless all of us. Nihil Ultra!
