XLRI Alumni Meet In Annual Signature Events Of Bonding

48 batches. 6000+ alumni. They are the upholders of an enviable tradition that is unique to XLRI, one of the Oldest Business Schools in the Country. These XLers met in the later part of May across six Indian Cities - viz. Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai as part of the annual get-togethers.

XLRI's highly active alumni network spans the length and breadth of the corporate world, not only in India but also in different parts of the globe. Alumni Meets, as part of the annual itinerary of XLRI, were hosted across the globe.

The events were consciously set in an informal atmosphere of fun - an important brand attribute of XLRI - giving ample time for the alumni to interact and network, while at the same time renewing ties with the Institute.The Meet also served as a platform, where XLRI tradition got debated, recalled, savoured and endlessly enjoyed by batches cutting across the young and the old. The meet also served as a huge inspiration to the current batch of XLers.

Famous alumni of XLRI include B.Muthuraman, MD, Tata Steel; Jaspal Bindra, CEO (Indian Region), Standard Chartered Bank; Manet Paes, MD, Alliance Air, to name a few.

Among the Sponsors and Partners for this year's events across the Country were, ABN Amro, Airtel, BPCL, HCL, HSBC, ITC, JobsAhead.Com, Orange, Pepsi, Reckitt Benckiser, SAP, Satyam Infoline, Seagram, Sony Entertainment Television, South African Brewery, Sify, Tata AIG, Tata Teleservices and The Hindu Business Line.
