NEW DELHI, JANUARY 18: Xavier School of Management, better known as XLRI Jamshedpur has laid the Foundation Stone for XLRI Amravati - their new campus in Andhra Pradesh on January 17, 2019.

At the formal function held to commemorate the occasion on the said date, the foundation stones of the new campus were laid by dignitaries like Sri Nara Chandra Babu Naidu, Honorable Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh; Fr. E. Abraham, S.J., Director, XLRI Jamshedpur; Dr. Ashis K Pani, Dean- Academics, XLRI Jamshedpur among others. 

Commenting on this occasion, Sri Nara Chandra Babu Naidu said, “XLRI Jamshedpur has thoughtfully designed world-class infrastructure facilities and has become one of the most reputed national B-schools. XLRI practices what it preaches. It observes Value orientation in every sphere of life. I am happy to learn that XLRI has completed 70 glorious years of educating global business leaders and for seventy years the institution has diligently focused on training future business leaders who can help shape the destiny of India with integrity, competence and commitment. It is a matter of happy coincidence that XLRI is entering into its Platinum Jubilee Celebration year in 2019.”

The new campus of XLRI Amravati is being set up in Inavolu Village in Thullur Mandal in Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh. The total area of the institute would be 50 Acres. The new XLRI campus would accommodate around 5000 students to provide Post-Graduate and Undergraduate Programmes in Management Education.

In his address, Fr. E Abraham said, “It is our belief that in emphasizing value-based management education, we will be grooming business leaders who will serve as catalysts of change and become responsible leaders of tomorrow that will carve the destiny of a new India. As we recall XLRI’s historic legacy of 70 years of shaping global business leaders, we need to look towards the future and not be content with our existing laurels. For that, we decided to spread our wings in the other parts of India, and today we have come together at this historic event of laying the foundation stone for the XLRI-Amaravati campus. XLRI has a special sense of gratitude to the Chief Minister’s Office for support and assistance.”

Speaking about the new campus in his address, Fr. Jerome Cutinha, S.J., Dean, XLRI Jamshedpur said, “Our project team and the architect and designers have worked very hard on every aspect of the design and feasibility and helped create a world-class, sustainable building plan. We hope that XLRI-Amravati will go a long way to become an institution of repute in the years ahead.”
