“XLRI has been a beacon of excellence in management education for 75 years. Fostering social consciousness among students is one of the hallmarks of Jesuit Business Education, and at XLRI we lay great emphasis on inclusive and sustainable growth of people and communities and strongly advocate social responsibility alongside corporate activities”, said Fr S George S.J., Director, XLRI Jamshedpur.
With the legacy as the first B-school to introduce sustainability in the curricula, XLRI is actively recruiting more faculty members specializing in sustainability issues. Greater engagement with corporate entities on sustainability projects are being worked towards. Another aspect of social engagement at XLRI is managing the Jamshedpur Management Association, probably the most high-performing chapter among all Indian student management associations. This initiative attempts to bring together government, academia, and industry to spread management education among the entities and people who ideally don’t have access to this.
The International POMS Conference was organized on December 4-6, 2023 on the theme “Envisioning the Future of Operations for Sustainability” for academicians and practitioners worldwide to unite, exchange ideas, and explore innovative approaches to redefine Production & Operations Management as a field. On December 9-10, 2023, XLRI will be hosting its Alumni Homecoming, bringing together past and present leaders for a celebration of legacy and shared experiences. To mark the 75 years of XLRI’s labour and industrial relations research and education, XLRI in collaboration with the Leeds University Business School, Leeds, the UK and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, New Delhi are calling on the academic and research fraternity to submit their chosen work to be presented at the two-day International Industrial Relations Conference at XLRI in Jamshedpur from January 8-9, 2024. XLRI’s MAXI Fair, a key annual event since 1979, is scheduled for January 20-21, 2024. Dr. Sharad Sarin’s legacy continues as management students delve into research challenges, attracting industry giants like HUL, ITC, Nestle, and Cadbury. The International Conference on Ethics & Responsibility in Business focusing on ‘Enabling Social and Business Responsibility’ is scheduled for February 2-3, 2024.
