Delhi-NCR campus of institute ready to take off
The second campus of the Xavier Labour Relations Institute (XLRI) began its admission process for the first batch of its Delhi-NCR campus in Jhajjar, Haryana, for the academic session 2020-2022.
The B-School received its All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) approval on Wednesday for a batch of 120 students in business management.
The new campus will be the first branch of one of the most reputed B-Schools of the country, XLRI, Jamshedpur.
Classes are expected to start in August.
The Delhi-NCR campus is located in Aurangpur, about 25km from Gurugram and is centrally connected to Delhi, Gurgaon, and Rewari.
The foundation stone for the campus at Jhajjar was laid on January 16, 2017.
“XLRI is India’s first B-School, and for 70 years, we had just one campus at Jamshedpur. We are glad to announce that XLRI’s Delhi-NCR campus is all set to start with 120 students for the business management programme for the 2020-22 academic sessions with the AICTE approval. The institute has been focusing on helping build the nation with a focus on ethical and value-based management education and grooming future business leaders of India to help shape the destiny of a new India. It continues to have the same vision — to train leaders who will excel in the workplace while upholding high personal values, integrity, and social concern and furthering the greater common good,” said director of XLRI, Father P. Christie.
The new state-of-the-art campus is spread over an area of 36 acres and has been designed to promote eco-friendly living and foster climate consciousness.
It has earned a Gold-level Green Building Certification, and has been designed using the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) guidelines to achieve a platinum rating in the future.
The new XLRI Delhi-NCR campus will offer a broad portfolio of courses, including the regular, two-year post-graduate programmes in human resource management and business management — PGDM HRM & PGDM BM.
It shall also include a 15-month executive general management programme for the executives with more than five years’ experience.
Fellow Program in Management (FPM), corporate programmes and Certificate Programme in Entrepreneurship and other industry-relevant short and long-term programmes will also be launched in a phase-wise manner.
The institute announced the results for the admission of the two-year post-graduate program in human resource management and business management for Jamshedpur campus on May 20. A total of 590 candidates have been offered admission for Jamshedpur and Delhi campuses in multiple MBA courses.
Father George Sebastian, the director of XLRI Delhi-NCR, said, “Nearly 95,000 students appear for the entrance examination every year. With the commencement of the Delhi-NCR campus, the institute will augment the intake of students to 600 students. Both campuses will have the same pedagogy and curriculum and share a pool of highly-qualified XLRI faculty members. XAT will be the only way to apply for admission for both the campuses along with one placement process. Both the campuses will share the same vision, mission, and values with ethics and integrity at its core while steadfastly upholding the principle of greater common good.”
