You’ve reached the peak but there are other hills you’ll have to climb. Make sure you make the most of the opportunities at XLRI. When you succeed, XLRI succeeds. And when you fail, we fail. Your every action, brings glory to XLRI.”
“XLRI has consistently prioritized diversity in its classrooms, curating a varied student body in terms of gender, educational background, economic background, and professional backgrounds, as well as regional diversity. This commitment extends to ensuring a balanced gender ratio, with XLRI historically pioneering the inclusion of women in management education in India. As a Jesuit institution rooted in strong values, XLRI not only respects and values women but also fosters an environment where they feel safe and empowered,” said an XLRI official.
The academic inaugural event was then followed by an ice-breaking event where all the students had participated and several games/activities were conducted. This two-hour event was a complete refreshment and made all the students interact comfortably with each other.
The new students were then taken through a Special Orientation Programme drawn up by XLRI to update their knowledge before regular classes commenced. n
