It is also the first institution to conceive and create a technology-enabled and interactive online executive education program. Over the years, XLRI has developed a distinct identity for itself. The hallmark of this identity is not to walk on the beaten path, but to strife and strike new routes; not to benchmark, but to be benchmarked; to be second to none, but to be the first to respond to the needs of the people and the nation; taking up tasks that are bold, but necessary, that which nobody has hitherto taken up. This enterprising and pioneering spirit can be witnessed throughout the history of XLRI. XLRI has always had and maintains a global outlook.

XLRI offers a wide range of academic programs in the field of management education. These include Post Graduate Programmes in Business Management\Human Resource Management, XLRI - RBS Double Master’s Programme in Supply Chain Management & Supply Chain Analytics, Fellow Programme in Management, Executive Fellow Programme in Management, and Executive PG Programmes for working executives.
