History
XLRI was founded in 1949 by Fr Quinn Enright, S.J. in the Steel City of Jamshedpur. Fr. Enright visualized XLRI to be a partner in the liberation and development journey of the independent India with a vision of “renewing the face of the earth”. Fr. Bill Tome joined hands with him to bring that vision to fruition. Both, together with the other Jesuit companions, worked tirelessly towards translating the Vision “Renewing the face of the earth” into action. During the first seven years of growth, several courses of management and trade unions were developed and organized by the institute. In the year 1953, the 2 year full time industrial relations program was started which is now the most widely acclaimed Personal Management and Industrial Relation (PM & IR) course. In the year 1968 the 2 year full time business management (BM) course was introduced and it is now one of the most sought after programs. To mark the fifty years of service to the executive world, XLRI started the three year executive post graduate program in the year 2001. It started the three-years Executive Postgraduate programme in Business Management (Singapore) and the International Student Exchange Programme (ISEP) in 2006.

General Management Strategy & Consulting

Expand your forces from singular to multiple… Just flow with the situation and you know you have grown manifold.

General Management
General Management, as a sphere of activity, is concerned with the leadership and management of any business as a whole. Here, at XLRI, we understand the importance of inculcating in our students the values and qualities necessary for effective general management. The course is structured to encompass these very values, and to expose students to philosophies and strategies that sustain successful enterprises. At the core of the study in this field, is the focus on ethics and corporate citizenship, as we understand the linkage between the enterprise and the broader community.

Strategy & Consulting
Strategy and consulting, over the years, has carved a niche segment for itself in the market. In today’s extremely competitive environment, the need to differentiate oneself from one’s competitors is of paramount importance. It is therefore the need of the hour, to have managers equipped with skills and mindsets that will foster quick understanding of the businesses and their environment, thereby enabling quick decisions. XLRI has recognised this need and has established a focussed course designed to imbibe in its students the ability to understand and analyse businesses with respect to their environment, and to promote out of the box thinking. Due to the pulsating and dynamic nature of businesses, and factors that influence it, the strategy & consulting courses at XLRI are designed to evolve with the market requirements. The faculty, deeply respected by companies around the globe, is involved with several consulting projects in the private and public domain and brings to the students a plethora of knowledge enriched by their experience in the field.

Placements
The Placement Office is managed by the Placement Committee which consists of student representatives. A placement Chairperson is selected from the faculty. The activities of the Placement Committee include coordinating for the Summer Internship Program, the Lateral Recruitment Program & the Campus Recruitment Program. It corresponds with the prospective employers, arranges Pre-Placement Talks and Personal Interviews on campus and provides all the facilities required by the visiting companies.

Building Campus Presence
A successful recruiting effort is possible only when the students know you better. XLRI offers you many opportunities to help build a good corporate image among the students. The following are our recommendations for the same.

Pre-placement Talks (PPTs)
The pre-placement talks are presentations organized by the company on the college campus. Over the years, they have become the primary forums for company-student interaction. These talks give the student a chance to learn more about your company, your people and your work culture. The students can also learn about the opportunities for growth, learning and advancement that your company offers. They can also form a first-hand impression of your company and can make an informed decision about applying for the placements. We have over the years found that senior executives are the most effective in delivering the PPTs and also making a strong statement of commitment to recruiting from this institute. The PPTs can take place on any mutually convenient day. If the company wishes to display some promotional material on campus, the final form of the material can be sent to the Placement Office, which will arrange for its display.

Distributing the Published Material
An effective way of creating awareness about your company among the students is to provide them with information. The information could be in the form of annual reports, company brochures, pamphlets, research material and other published information. The placement office will ensure distribution of such material amongst the students. The students could also be provided with live case studies. This could be done by conducting Case Contests. A panel comprising company executives with/without XLRI faculty could evaluate the student presentations.

Conferences, Workshops, Academic Fairs
Various events, speaker series, panel discussions, conferences, workshops and academic fairs can be organized in which your company may participate directly or contribute through partnerships. Institute scholarships and awards can also be sponsored by your company as a way to express your companies’ commitment to excellence in the student community at XLRI.

Sponsoring Projects
Projects are an integral part of the academic curriculum at XLRI. Over the years, many students have taken up live projects with many organizations. This provides the students involved, a basic understanding of the company’s operations. It also raises your companies’ profile among students and the faculty.

Summer Internship Process
The placement process consists of the following stages: • The company conducts a Pre-Placement Talk. • The resumes of the interested candidates are sent to the company. • The student body ranks the companies under the supervision of the faculty chairperson. • The company is informed of the day on which interviews have been scheduled based in the ranking. • The company sends a shortlist of students and the Recruitment Process details to the Placement Office.

The Pre-Placement Talk
The company conducts the recruitment process in the Scheduled Placement Slot. Companies are encouraged to give pre-placement talks well before the recruitment process begins. This helps the student in making an informed choice about the organization. Ideally, the PPT must include:• Company Profile • Projects on offer • Compensation details • Possible openings in the next year

Student Resumes
Companies have the option of circulating their customized application forms amongst candidates, or accepting personalized resumes from the shortlisted candidates.

Recruitment Process
The company shall inform the Placement Office about the following details well in advance. • The Method of Recruitment (Preliminary Test, GD, Interview, Case etc.) • Number of Rounds of the GD and group size • Number of rounds of Interview • Approximate duration of the GDs and Interviews

The Ranking
The following parameters are used to rank the companies: • Past record of recruitment • Relationship of the company with the institute • Career growth opportunities in the company • Compensation offered • Market performance of the company • Alumni feedback Since the slot arrived at is a collective decision of the students, no request for the change of slots shall be entertained.

Important Information
The Placement Committee, in consultation with the student body and the faculty, arrives at the norms of the placement process. The committee reserves the right to modify any such norms, where such norms are in the overall interest of the candidates participating in the process. In the event of any conflict in the interpretation and implementation of the norms, the decision of the Placement Committee shall be binding on the students and the companies.
