XLRI is planning to setup a second campus in south India, Hyderabad figures high on the list of possible destinations.
Speaking to ET, Father N Casimir Raj, SJ, director, XLRI said, “At the moment, we are scouting for possible locations for our second campus. Once that’s decided, we will go ahead with getting the necessary approval from the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education). We plan to start with an initial batch of 120, comprising both BM (Business Management) and PMIR (Personal Management & Industrial Relations) students.”
Meanwhile, on the issue of increasing the number of seats to minimise the impact of reservations on the general category of students, the director said that in the case of XLRI, it is simply not a viable option. The reasons being cited: lack of space as well as a shortage of faculty.
