But on examining the fathomless intellect of individuals, one can find a wealth of wisdom, which is reflected in their actions, intellect and calibre in their working environment. These qualities set apart the extraordinary from the ordinary. XLRI selects such extraordinary individuals and inculcates in them a unique set of skills, knowledge and experience. 03

  5. 5. Message from the Director XLRI is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee this year – 60 years of relentless and committed service to the nation. We recall with pride the finest corporate leaders we have moulded for more than half a century. Being one of the pioneers in the field of management education, XLRI was also the first to start the one- year General Management Programme in the year 1997. Since then this programme has consistently produced outstanding professionals true to the standards of XLRI. The students are executives who have at least five years of experience. This backdrop together with focussed lectures in the classroom, interaction with the faculty, sharpening of competencies and skills – all combine to produce a world class manager who is ready to take on the challenges of tomorrow. The batch of 2010 is unique – in that it is a blend of young and spirited executives who have the rich experience of industry, and yet are eager to groom themselves further in the intellectual realms of knowledge and learning. The concepts, theories and practices in management, have enriched them further as they prepare to join the corporate world. XLRI has groomed them into managers of excellence who are bound to make a significant contribution to the organizations that recruit them. These are managers who will “make a difference.” I am proud to present the batch of 2010. Give them the opportunity they deserve. They will be assets to your organization. E. Abraham, S.J. Director XLRI JAMSHEDPUR 05
  6. 6. Message from the Chairperson GMP Management graduates in India lack substantial industry experience prior to their management education, making their education highly theoretical in nature. Criticism often encountered was that the graduates lacked practical insights and needed experience before they reached decision making roles in different functional domains. In response to this challenge, we conceptualized the 'General Management Program' which imparts theoretical knowledge and strategic skills to practising managers with substantial experience in their industries. This program is aimed to groom managers, to quickly shoulder greater responsibilities, possess deeper insights and be potential candidates for leadership positions. To augment the process of building world class leaders, part of the course is a three week international immersion programme; where the students visit collaborating foreign universities (e.g. Darden School of Business, AIM Manila etc) attend classes, execute projects for organisations in different countries. Customized for one year full time residential program, the pedagogy has been refined to maximize peer to peer learning and to take students to leading edge in their areas of interest. I take immense pleasure to introduce to you a new breed of managers, the GMP batch of 2009 – 2010, selected through a stringent admission process to ensure that we train people with the right attitude and focus on continuous self development. I welcome you to come and interact with this highly motivated and persevering group of individuals. Prof. Pranabesh Ray Chairperson, GMP Programme XLRI JAMSHEDPUR

A rigorous academic programme, an international immersion and high quality peer learning ensures that every GMPian develops exceptional qualities and adds value in every kind of business scenario. The batch of 2009-10 is a special batch: they are individuals who have chosen to take the bold step of investing time and money in enriching their knowledge base during a period in which most others have opted to try and retain the jobs they have. This is what gets reflected in the attitude of the 2009-10 GMP batch: a preparedness to face the dynamic uncertainties of a changing environment; a quiet confidence; a belief in themselves. I am sure you too will identify these traits when you meet them. Prof. Uday Damodaran - Faculty: Finance B.Sc. (Physics) Kerala, M.Stat.(SQC&OR) ISI Delhi, Fellow (IIMB)
