Principal Founder, XIME & Chairman, XIME Bangalore

The only constant in this world is change. The ebb and flow of change is perennial in economies, industries and businesses. It is indeed a challenging task for managers to constantly adapt to these changes. Welcome to XIME! We will prepare you for such a turbulent world. In the 57 years that I have spent in the field management education, I have seen wave after wave of changes that have assailed management education. Here at XIME, not only have we not gone under those waves, but we have also succeeded in riding many of them. Built on a culture of merit, integrity and liberality of outlook, XIME, grooms future managers through a comprehensive and contemporary curriculum supported by courses in ethics, international business and ample industry exposure. Appreciation of societal issues is inculcated through various social action programmes and notably a three-week project on ‘Socially Useful and Productive Activity’. On the whole, our endeavour is to develop managers who by dint of their capability and character can measure up to the diverse challenges of the world of business and industry. At XIME you will be part of an exciting journey of exploration, learning and development of your personal and professional potential.



President, XIME Kochi Former Executive Vice President- Vodafone India

Today, India is the youngest nation in the world with 65% of our population below 35 years of age. The strength of the youth can change the economy of the country. For India to become an economic leader, it is very important to increase the employability of our youth, by providing the right skills, attitude and values. In this endeavour, the XIME Society realized the importance of developing value-based, managerial and leadership skills thirty years back and created the XIME Society. With this primary objective, XIME Society established its first business school at Bangalore in 1995. Realizing the need for expansion, the XIME Society started the Kochi campus in 2012 at KINFRA High Tech Park (Kalamassery) with 1.65 lakhs sq.ft. built-up area. Today XIME Kochi campus has an approved intake of 120 students and draws students from all over the country, maintaining its thrust on diversity. XIME Kochi offers two years fully residential Post Graduate Diploma in Management and provides an enriching environment with all modern facilities. The faculty members at the institute continuously interact with the industry through consulting projects and Executive Development Programs. The institute encourages students to take up live projects and participate in the Professional Association activities. These efforts ensure the all-round development of the students. I welcome all of you to come over to XIME Kochi and get a feel of the vibrant atmosphere of our campus in “God’s Own Country”.

Now in the fourteenth year since its establishment, XIME Kochi cherishes its membership of the XIME group of institutes, proudly sharing the values and the mission of service to management of education that inspire our collective endeavours. Our institution will continue, with energy and commitment, its pursuit of excellence in levels of domain knowledge and of professional and personal development for our students. The XIME curriculum amply reflects this ideal and the leadership, faculty and the environment at our Kochi campus are configured to realise it in ever growing measure. The successive batches of our students have uniformly manifested their merit through their academic performance, their participation in the wide range of activities that are part of their post graduate programme and their score in placements. Assuring effective managerial learning to our students, XIME Kochi has made impressive strides in performance and is already among the premier management education institutions in the region. That our PGDM programme was able to retain its tone and rigour in spite of the adverse circumstance of Covid 19 since March 2020, attests to the unswerving quality that distinguishes teaching and learning at XIME, Kochi. The future bears promise of great possibilities of further achievements for the institute. Our hearty welcome to XIME !
