The college has a very good lush green garden to relax, state of art classrooms for effective teaching and comfortable learning, Apart from the infrastructure the college also provides many opportunities to the students for corporate exposure in the form of live projects, seminars,talks, conclaves through dignitaries and market leaders and students can learn from their experiences Being a 100% residential campus we also find time to make good friends also can create an environment like home away from home, only criteria is one should not crack under pressure and that is what the college demonstrates because in life we can't expect smooth curves every time and should learn how to handle the pressure effectively

Excellent ROI and faculty at my institute. Many people don't know about the college because of less marketing. The only thing college lacks is the On-campus hostel experience. Most of the students are residing in the nearby area due to no hostel facilities. ROI of this college is very good for which one can prefer this college to other colleges present in the same league. Faculties are highly experienced. One can get good industry exposure by working in so many projects offered to the students. Excellent infrastructure and the faculty. It's Undoubtedly the best B-School in India

XIMB is one of the few institutes in inda which provides rural management course with a great rural exposure. RM program here comes with activities like RLLE and Gramotsava. RLLE is 2 months long rural living and learning experience and Gramotsava is a rural marketing fair organized by the students. Also, the faculties here are having vast industry experience which help students to have more clear and deep understanding about what rural India is and how to develop it.

XSRM previously XIMB

Posted on 19 Oct' 15 by Brijesh Arora

Life at XIMB or XSRM has always been enriching and exciting from day 1. It is a roller coaster ride working all the times for assignments, presentations and other committee tasks. This is the most important aspect of learning and behaving in a professional manner. Besides learning professionalism the college campus living being a fully residential program will give an insight into the future life of students in the real world. Classroom learning is a vey important component in any college and it largely depends upon the performance of its faculties. The faculties here have a very strict rule and each of them have some unique way of teaching in the classrooms which adds to the distinguished feature of our university. We also have some of the renowned faculties who has connections spread all over the country. Also, the university has a beautiful infrastructure- a lush green campus with facilities like gymnasium, printer room, basketball court, badminton court, sports ground, computer labs, etc. All these facilities are available at 24*7 hours in a day. One can see longer days extended upto 30 hours where in night life is cherished. Also, inter-cross interactions between different branches of HRM, BM and RM is an added advantage to the students of our college. This helps in getting into the horizons of understanding and gaining knowledge of different domains. Thus, life at XSRM is actually a great journey.
