Dr. Joseph Marianus Kujur SJ Director, Xavier Institute of Social Service (XISS), Ranchi
The Xavier Institute of Social Service (XISS) was established as an extension department of St. Xavier’s College, Ranchi, in 1955 with the objective of training young men and women in Rural Development, Personnel Management and Industrial Relations. In 1973 the institute was registered as a separate educational society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. In 1978, it moved to its present site and over the years has developed its own distinct identity as a centre of excellence in management education, research, consultancy, and development interventions. Seeing the market needs and demands XISS later started the programmes of Marketing and Finance which have strengthened the brand XISS in a complete orbit.
The post-corona world is going to be totally different from pre-corona world. Many top industries are adversely affected necessitating a paradigm shift, reimagination and reinvention in all spheres of life. In the given circumstances, adaptation is the key and not rigidity. It is survival of the fastest and not of the fittest that is the demand of the times. In India, joblessness is still a serious issue. The world is moving in the direction of forced entrepreneurship. It is going to have control of our life. We at XISS were quite proactive in analysing this change and hence we train our students in all possible directions be it developing acumen for industry aptness or thriving as a flourishing entrepreneur.
ALUMNI SPEAK: Dr. Pawan Kr. Singh – Director Indian Institute of Management, Tiruchirappalli | XISS helped me learn the nuances of managing the human side of management so well.
Mr. Soumya Mukherjee – Director | Asia Pacific Leader, Global Transfer Pricing Center | Deloitte Haskins & Sells LLP | XISS helped me to learn how to lead in a multi-cultural and challenging environment and inculcated the core human values like empathy, sharing, and giving back which, I believe are extremely important for the development of a professional.
