Student Engagement:

Value for Money:

World Economy is changing. The demand for world class managers is ever increasing. Today we see more and more students getting attracted to the much sought after profession -MBA. I too after finishing my graduation studies became a part of the rat race. That is how I landed at one of the finest B-Schools of India -Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar more prominently known as XIMB.

Today there are 100s of B-Schools emerging in India, but there are several factors that sets apart XIMB from others and puts it in a class of its own. Let's have a brief look at these facts.


Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar (XIMB) owes its origin to the initiatives of the Government of Orissa and the Jesuit Society. It was started in 1987. Since then it has completed 18 years of purposeful existence, offering management education ''with a human face''. During this short span of its existence, XIMB has established an identity of its own, and a consistent position among the best B-Schools in the country. XIMB aims to develop in its students technical, professional, managerial excellence, social and cultural sensitivity , ethical responsibility and concern for the environment. This objective is to enable students to be successful in their career and also keep pace with the changing scenario of the corporate world and its environs.


The institute is located in a 20 acres verdant campus located on the outskirts of

Bhubaneswar city. The classrooms are all air-conditioned and are equipped with educational audio/video equipment, LCD projectors, computers and WiFi. Also each student is provided with a single room and a personal laptop and a 24 hours internet connection of 2Mbps.Also this year the hostel too has been made Wi-Fi enabled. The facilities for sports and games are one of the best in the country,with floodlit tennis courts, jogging tracks, a cricket & football field and an indoor badminton court. The XIMB library has excellent books (40000+) and a large collection of journals on management and related subjects. The AIS(Academic Information System) developed by XIMB is unique in itself and is now being adopted by other premier institutes.

Academic Programmes:

The institute offers three postgraduate programs and one doctoral program. They are:

PGP- Two year full time Post Graduate Programme in Business Management.

PGPRM- Two year full time Post Graduate Programme in Rural Management.

Ex-PGP- Three year Part time Post Graduate Programme in Business Management for Working Executives

FPM- Fellow Programme in Management.

Student Life and Activities:

My experience in the last few months since I joined is something that cannot be described. I think that the days spent here are some of the best days of my life. Although the institute is more academic oriented there are always days when we have lots of fun & parties. Here at local restaurants we as XIMBians also get a good discount on food and drinks. Also a lot of extra-curricular activities happen on the campus. Come October and students and top executives from all over India start pouring in, to celebrate our annual cultural extravaganza ''Xpressions''.The thrust here is that students themselves manage each and every aspect of this mega event. Also there are round the clock activities like quiz, online trading games et al organized by various student committees on the campus. All in all almost 18-20 hours a day the campus is in a vibrant mode.


The placement cell here is very active and has been able to attract some of the best names in the corporate world. Companies like Marico, Infosys, Wipro, TVS Electronics,

Polaris...etc are regular on the campus. The list is a long one. To see entire placement

details visit the sites mentioned below.

3 months have passed since I came here, but than life here has been so different that one does not realize how time passes here. Let it be the initial homesickness or the various experiences that I went through, today I am truly enjoying the spirit, the spirit of being an XIMBian.
