London laurels for XLRI

A pat for Jamshedpur’s premier B-school has come all the way from the UK.

XLRI was felicitated in London at the first-ever SkillTree Great Place to Study – India Edition, an initiative of SkillTree Knowledge Consortium.

Hosted at the House of Commons in London on June 27, the ceremony saw eminent personalities from both India and the UK’s education sector come together to honour 20 of India’s most respected educational institutions.

Dr Pranabesh Ray, dean (academics), XLRI, received the award on behalf of the B-school. The presentation was done by British Parliamentarian Bob Blackman.

To showcase India’s prowess as a global-leader in education attainment as well as to demonstrate the country’s vast potential as a hub of learning and development, SkillTree Knowledge Consortium — India’s first syndicate of private universities and institutions — launched a unique initiative titled SkillTree Great Place To Study – India Edition.

Great Place to Study marks the first international education convocation of its kind in London to profile some of India’s most established and respected educational institutions. The aim is to position the selected Indian colleges and universities as proven leaders on a global platform, and to cement India’s position as an educational destination.

“XLRI has always strived to make its curriculum world-class and deliver it in the most effective manner. Such accolades are very inspiring for our students and faculty and boost them in achieving greater performances,” said Fr. E. Abraham, director of XLRI.

Besides XLRI, the other institutions that were felicitated at the function were Great Lakes Institute of Management, IMT-CDL, Ghaziabad, ICFAI University, Manipal University, AIMS Institutes, Apeejay Education Society and Apeejay Stya University, among others. Leading NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul, chairman of Caparo Group, was honoured with lifetime achievement award.
