A Certificate Course on

“Basic Managerial Skills for Potential Managers and Entrepreneurs”

(A sponsored program of SIDBI)

The Institute

Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar was jointly conceptualized by the Odisha Jesuit Society and Government of Odisha more than 20 years ago as a management institution with a difference, an institution which imparts not only management education but also develops social entrepreneurship  towards the developmental needs of the country and more specifically of the state. With this motto behind it, the institution has come a long way and today is considered to be one of the premier management education institutions not only in the country but even outside. The Institute creates opportunities for growth and development of local entrepreneurs, maximizes management research and brings about the overall industrial development of India through various innovative consulting projects with present and potential investors and wealth creators.


The Institute is located on 20 acres of verdant campus in the neighborhood of NALCO, Satyam Computer, Software Technology Park and other renowned business houses and institutions. The entire Wi-Fi enabled campus houses the office complex, auditorium complex, residences for gents, ladies and executive program students, CENDERET office complex, Management Development Center (MDC) and studio Apartment. In addition, the Institute has a floodlit basketball court, tennis courts, indoor badminton court, gymnasium and well maintained playing fields for cricket and soccer. The Institute provides residential quarters for the faculty on campus. We are in the process of setting up another Wi-Fi campus with state-of-the-art facilities.


The XIMB Library has an ever increasing collection of books, journals, audio visuals, working papers, annual reports, summer projects, etc. Besides the print materials, XIMB Library has various electronic resources in the form of Corporate  and Economic database (Indian/International) like EBSCO, ABI Inform, Elsevier (Science direct), JSTOR, Emerald Management, sage Database, ISI Emerging Market database, CMIE, India stat, etc.

The Library Information System is accessible from inside as well as outside the campus. More information about the library can be accessed through the library website (http://www.ximb.ac.in/library/). 

Computer Center

The Computer Resource Center (CRC) provides IT resources to the students, faculty and staff. The Institute provides notebooks and workstations to all faculty and staff. All the computers are connected to the Campus LAN, which is supported by Fibre Optic backbone. In addition, wireless hotspots are spread all across the campus making it possible to remain connected anywhere in the campus all the time. The campus network covers the Institute, class rooms, library, hostels and faculty residence. All members on the internet have access to the internet 24 hours, through 50 MBPS leased lines. The CRC has designed, developed and implemented many software applications in the Institute and outside.       

Class Room Complex

The Class room Complex includes air-conditioned lecture halls, syndicate rooms, multimedia hall and executive class rooms. The class rooms are equipped with educational audio/video equipments, tablet PCs, computers with large monitors, LCD projectors and network connections. While most classes are held in the lecture halls, some prefer to the lawn adjacent to the classroom complex for education with a difference.

Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC)

Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) aligns with the institute’s commitment to give a strong orientation to the social and economic growth of Odisha and the country as a whole. The centre strives to support all categories of institutions and organizations that are working in the development sector. It provides consultancy, technical inputs, helps draft proposals, devises monitoring and evaluation parameters, conducts training programmes and workshops and provides other customized solutions as per the needs of the industry or the organization. It has the mandate to promote small and micro enterprises through different means for creation of livelihood opportunities, employment and income and poverty eradication in the state.
