I entered XLRI through XAT. Other options available are CAT and GMAT. A good score along with a good career progression before XL has helped me to enter the prestigious college. Interviews are focused on your past achievements and future aspirations and your zeal to become a manager/ entrepreneur.
It is the only college I aimed for (as it is best for MBA HR). Other management courses are also good but HR is what it offers in best possible manner. Being from Delhi, it was really difficult for me to adjust in town like Jamshedpur as there are no good places to hang around also.
Average salary you can expect is around 15.8 lakh. One point which will work in your favor for placement is the lesser batch strength.
I took CAT and XAT. I did not receive calls from any IIM's. I had applied to XLRI's BM programme only and because of a 99.72 percentile, I received an interview call from XLRI.
There are several positives and negatives. But nothing that deters your personal growth in the college.
XAT, Xavier's aptitude test that takes place on the first weekend of the year three sections with different cut offs for BM and HR.
The college management is very flexible and deals with cases as they are. For ex there are late night parties every month on campus going up to 4 in the night. An XL student went to MTV Roadies and won the show while being in college. The dean gave special permission to the student and shows that the focus is on all round development and not only academics.
XAT, scored 99.6 percentile.I opted for this course as at that point in time it was my opinion that the only colleges better than XLRI were IIM A, IIM B and IIM C. Unfortunately I didn't get calls from them. Other than that the college alumnus and culture was fantastic and the overall development of a person is much better than the IIMs where the focus is primarily on academics.
XL culture or XL bonding is what makes XLRI stand out from the rest of the B-schools. A small batch size ensures that everybody knows almost everybody else. XLRI unsurprisingly always has a healthy gender ratio which many other B-schools are trying to achieve with special efforts. The diversity results in creativity and provides whole new perspective to all the student initiatives.
GMAT -710 CAT 98.3 Seemed good value for money. Other course that I got at one of the lower grade IIMs was of 2 year duration. This course seemed be apt for me as I had relevant experience.
I appeared for an examination called XAT Xavier Aptitude test. I scored 96.85 percentile in it and got interview callI chose XL because of its Brand value.
Excellent, All were placed Companies from verticals such as real estate, IT, consulting etc. came and offered best in the industry packages to students.
The campus component is one of the most important components of this course and i believe it should be more than a week to give more time for students to interact with each other and take away the college life.
An executive MBA from XLRI jamshedpur requires an SOP, resume and an interview. i was always looking for an executive MBA as i did not want to take a break from my work. and XLRI is the best in the country when it comes to executive education in business management.
College management is gud, Only issue is whioe collecting the degree from exam.
XAT, The college accepts both XAT and cat scores marks should not be less than 50 perc. After clearing the cut off the selection is followed by GD and PI.
Being an Alum of this prestigious college I can easily say that it was one of the best decision of my life to pursue MBA from this Institute. Its a tag which will sail you through all your professional and personal life.
I appeared for XAT and scored 99.82 percentileXLRI being one of the oldest and most premiere institutes of the country made my decision very easy.Alongwith the great academic rigour, faculty, quality of students, placements the one factor which also played a role in me choosing the institute was the fact that my hometown was just 3 hours away from the city of Jamshedpur
