XLRI is the first B-school in the country to introduce a core course on “Managerial Ethics” for both its HRM and BM programmes. Each year, XLRI confers a medal on the best student in Managerial Ethics at the institute’s annual convocation.”

XLRI has been organizing the ‘JRD Tata Oration on Business Ethics’ for our students to listen to their role models and leaders and understand the need and importance of ethics in business as well as inspire them to follow these ethical codes of conduct in their professional and personal lives”, he added.
