The Platinum Jubilee Celebration, spanning from October 11, 2023 to October 10, 2024, is a testament to the institute’s unwavering commitment to nurturing future leaders and making a lasting impact on the business world.

The grand inauguration featured Shri C.P. Radhakrishnan, the Honourable Governor of Jharkhand was the Chief Guest for the event.

Radhakrishnan’s outstanding contributions to society and his unwavering dedication to public service. The presentation of this award was a momentous highlight of the event, symbolizing XLRI’s deep appreciation for individuals who lead by example and work tirelessly for the betterment of the community.

Alongside Shri C.P Radhakrishnan, present on the dais were Director – Fr S George SJ, Chairman – TV Narendran, Dean of Administration & Finance – Fr Donald D’Silva SJ, and the Dean of Academics – Prof. Sanjay Patro. The event was also attended by the XLRI faculty members, staff members, alumni network and the entire vibrant student fraternity. Their participation exemplified the unity and shared commitment that defines the XLRI community.

During the event, the Honourable Governor, Shri C. P. Radhakrishnan, shared his insights and inspiration with the XLRI community. He stated, “XLRI is a significant milestone in Indian education and stands as a beacon of management education. XLRI is outstanding in nurturing leaders and making an indelible mark on society. Tata, one of the most ethical companies globally, is praised for its leadership and commitment to helping during crises like the Mumbai terrorist attack. Real leadership involves taking risks and being socially responsible, which was a key lesson from my business administration studies. Tata’s commitment to solving problems in various sectors, including electricity in Mumbai, is a testament to its strong ethics. We should be dedicated and involved in our pursuits, much like XLRI’s success story. Addressing the disparity between natural resources and living conditions is a global issue, and political leadership should focus on utilizing resources for economic growth and improving living standards.” His words resonated deeply with all those in attendance, reaffirming the significance of XLRI’s mission and the enduring impact of education on society.
