The standard XAT admission process would integrate the students of both the campuses, besides having in place a common curriculum, syllabus, pedagogy, e-library facilities, and a joint placement process for summer internship and final placements.“Our extension campus at Delhi-NCR is envisioned as ‘an integral part’ of the Jamshedpur campus…These complementing satellite campuses and the student community therein would get the same opportunities and privileges as the Jamshedpur campus,” said Fr P Christie SJ, Director, XLRI- Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur. “Though physically apart, the satellite campuses are and will be one entity and an intrinsic part of the XLRI family,” he said.Fr George Sebastian, SJ, Director of XLRI I Delhi-NCR Campus, added: “We are determined to provide all our students the same high-quality management education and the same set of training. Besides, we would put in place the same summer internship and final placement opportunities.” “Access, availability, and deployment of faculty from Jamshedpur and all the common resources available would essentially establish the pedagogy of XLRI in both the campuses.”
