Jamshedpur: XLRI- Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur inaugurated its new programme – Postgraduate Certificate in General Management for Working Executives and Entrepreneurs.

The formal inaugural session was held in presence of Fr. E. Abraham, S.J, Director of XLRI, Dr. Ashis K Pani, Dean [Academics], XLRI, Prof. M. G. Jomon, Associate Dean [Corporate Programmes], XLRI and Prof. Prantik Ray, PGCGM Program Coordinator at XLRI.

21 participants who are working professionals joined the programme and were present at the inaugural session. After a four-day long induction session at XLRI Campus in Jamshedpur, the classes would be held at XIMR, St. Xavier’s College Campus in Mumbai.

Addressing the new students at the inaugural session, Fr. E. Abraham said, “To outperform in today’s highly competitive and far-reaching business environment, it is important for business leaders to continuously up-skill their knowledge base and acquire new skill-sets and competencies. At XLRI, we guide our students with industry-ready course content, engaging classes, ample faculty interactions and a peer-to-peer learning environment with a particular focus on sustainable business practices”.

“The eleven months programme will focus on competency-based education with a view to leveraging classroom learning to enhance professional performance. The programme will be pursued in such a manner as to encourage critical and lateral thinking and integrate theory with practice as is seen in general management. This programme has been devised in a way that will not only provide theoretical knowledge that goes into the making of a successful leader, but also brings out the best in each student.

I am sure at the end of the eleven-month programme, we at XLRI would have helped shape future business leaders who will be enriched not just in conceptual and operational aspects related to execution of day-to-day business activities, but also mangers who will be equipped to embrace a meticulous, explore-every-solution attitude and an appraisal of every business problem through a prism of varied management disciplines,” Fr. E. Abraham added.

The background is extremely varied and it ranges from Architect, Banker, Oil and Gas, IT, Financial Services, Manufacturing, Agro-industry, Security Services etc.”

“During the 4 days at XLRI Campus, the participants would be taking part in various induction sessions coordinated by XLRI professors. Besides they would also be taking part in yoga sessions every day,” Prof. Prantik Ray added.
