Davos, 22 January 2020:  Two BSchools from India IIM Bangalore and XLRI have featured in the top 30 global Business Schools of Positive Impact Rating 2020, launched today at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The Positive Impact Rating measures business schools for their positive contribution to society.

The top global schools include Antwerp Management School Belgium, EADA Business School Barcelona Spain, Georgia Institute of Tech. – Scheller College of Business United States, INCAE Business School Costa Rica Costa Rica , London Business School UK.

 The Positive Impact Rating (PIR) is a radically new student-based rating measuring the positive impact of business schools. It aims to change the thrust of existing rankings from leading schools to be the best in the world to be the best for the world. It addresses the ongoing critique of existing rankings to support mainly economic and selfish goals of already privileged actors, without reflecting the schools’ role as an important social actor.

Fr. P. Christie S.J., Director, XLRI – Xavier School of Management commented, “We are happy to see that XLRI has featured in the list of 30 leading Global Business Schools in the First Edition of Positive Impact Report 2020. This PIR rating would inspire us to work more diligently towards attaining our Vision and Mission. The millennial B-School students have clearly expressed their views on the importance of Positive Impact on society at large. This benign realization marks a paradigm shift and would foster a collaborative ecosystem and make the process of management education more meaningful and purpose-oriented.”

In fact, XLRI’s tagline – “For the Greater Good” is a constant reminder to all our stakeholders of why we exist and how XLRI can be a force for greater common good in shaping the management education sector and the community at large.“Encouraging whole-person growth across intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual levels are important aspects of XLRI’s DNA. For over seven decades we have been consciously working upon these four aspects through our teaching, culture, curriculum, and interaction with each other to help realize our vision to be an institution of excellence, nurturing responsible global leaders for the greater common good and a sustainable future”, he added.
