These students are grounded in the vision and values of excellence and ethics set by the Xavier University. Since its inception in 1987, XIMB has offered a functional specialisation in HRM in the PGDM program. A full-fledged 2-year PGDM-HRM program was launched in 2011. This is now offered as MBA-HRM, the flagship program of the Xavier School of HRM.
