XLRI starts mgt course for working professionals

The three-year part time programme in Business Management for Working Executives, (BME) was introduced in the premier business school, XLRI on Thursday, 2nd August, 2012 as announced early this year. The BME module designed and developed for working professionals and entrepreneurs allows the flexibility of rigorous learning while working. The programme facilitates varied opportunities to the participants for applying conceptual insights gained in classroom to their workplaces and special projects, whilst bringing in respective field experiences to enrich classroom learning.

"The programme has been designed to facilitate two-way learning. The two-way interaction on a real-time basis, over an extended period of time, would help in developing concepts as well as hone the practical aspects of the knowledge gained in the classroom," said Prof. Rajiv Mishra, member of coordinating panel, BME. XLRI had been running such a program for a long time in the past but the same was discontinued about a decade back. The revised programme incorporates a number of changes made on the basis of feedback from industries.

"Inquiries from executives of Jamshedpur-based companies, expressing their interest in doing a part-time program in management motivated us to reintroduce the advanced version of BME," said Prof Mishra. A senior faculty at the institution admitted that most applications came from the large organizations where XLRI successfully generated BME awareness through interactions and road shows. Candidates from about 25 different organizations, with a wide diversity in terms of age, experience and qualification have enrolled in the debut batch (2012-15).

BME candidates didn't appear for Xavier Aptitude Test, (XAT) however they appeared for personal interview and assessment test. "The most attractive element of this programme is that it attempts to balance the work-life pressures and classroom-learning rigor for participants by scheduling the class timings in the late evenings and weekends, thereby providing breaks between terms, and reducing academic work-load during financial year endings," said an executive of a leading steel company.
