ALUMNI SPEAK (on re-launching of the program in 2012)

I am happy to know that XLRI is re-starting the evening program for the working professionals at Jamshedpur. This actually means that a bunch of professionals will get immense benefit from the program which eventually will equip them to lead the future.

The BME course which I pursued almost two decades back helped me in my professional assignments. The faculty members of the institute are truly exceptional not only for their wisdom & qualifications but more importantly the values they uphold. The design of the program gives wide range of inputs to the students.

I am sure many of my corporate colleagues will harness this opportunity and get benefitted.

My Best Wishes to the institute and the aspirants.
