I am delighted to be part of the 60th Annual Convocation of
XLRI. As Chairman of the XLRI Board of Governors, it is an
honour to be amidst future leaders of the world of business on
this significant occasion.
XLRI, as all of you are aware, has grown significantly in the last
six decades and has established its place as a well-respected,
reputed Business School. Jamshedpur- India’s first planned
industrial township - is truly fortunate to have such a reputed
business school. XLRI not only lays emphasis on high-quality ,
management-centric education but also focuses on inculcating
values and skill-sets required to become responsible corporate
citizens. It is this emphasis on becoming a well-rounded
individual that sets XLRI apart from other business schools in
On this landmark occasion, I want to acknowledge the role and
contribution of the Director, faculty and staff of XLRI in helping
create a suitably conducive environment for students to realise
their potential and prepare themselves for an effective and
productive work-life .
To the graduating students: In the two years that you have
spent here, XLRI has helped mould and assist you to become
thoughtful and fine human beings. I also encourage you to
develop a habit of lifelong learning so that you continue to be
an asset to your organisation and the society at large. Always
remember to serve the society around you with compassion,
honesty and integrity.
I wish each one of you the very best as you embark on a new
phase of your work-life journey.
