|The most interesting aspect of this college is the starting of the autonomous stand-alone B school, in 2012. Since its inception, this B school, the Xavier Institute of Business Administration, XIBA, has grown into a unique institution of its kind. In fact, there are other institutions like engineering colleges that also offer the MBA course, but there is no standalone B school either at Palayankottai or the twin town of Tirunelveli. |
The B school is now headed by Dr. A. Maichael John, who is the Director. He has a good team of other Faculty Members who take on the mandate of giving the best inputs related to the four specializations of Marketing, Finance, Operations, and Human Resources Management.
Since the parent college, that is, St.Xavier's College enjoys such a big reputation for serving the educational needs of thousands of rural area students, XIBA has grown in stature within a very short time. The B school also arranges for regular guest lectures from Faculty Members, drawn from industry and they are very active in enabling the industry orientation of all students.
