Bhaskar Bhat to address JRD Tata Oration at XLRI Jamshedpur today


Jamshedpur, Nov 18: Bhaskar Bhat, chairman, Tata SIA Airlines and director, Tata Sons Ltd will address the 30th Annual JRD Tata Oration on Business Ethics on November 19 at Tata Auditorium, XLRI. Xavier School of Management (XLRI) is organising its annual event on a grand scale this year.

XLRI, in association with a few select Tata Group Companies, established in 1991 the JRD Tata Foundation in Business Ethics, to espouse their long-standing commitment and contribution to business ethics in India. The foundation seeks to address itself by publicly affirming the urgent need for upholding ethics in all spheres of business and the need to bring about a suitably favorable culture in which it can thrive. JRD Tata, himself a role model par excellence, delivered the first oration in 1991.

An increasing number of organizations are realizing the importance of ethics in business in today’s world. Corporate Social Responsibility is the need of the times. 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.
