Teaching the next generation to coexist on this planet is paramount. With the amount of modernization happening, imparting knowledge that focuses on creating a sustainable society with peace, justice, and reconciliation is essential. Xavier Institute of Social Service is one such institute that is the center of excellence in management education, research, consultancy, and development interventions. Its prime motto is to create leaders with conscience, compassion, competence, and commitment to the development and empowerment of the marginalized. XISS is an institute that carries with itself a very trusted legacy of the Xavier group.
How XISS is working towards creating a better future:
l Professional with a difference: The speed at which the change is coming is alarming. The present-day challenges are different and thus we need leaders who are different. Volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity were the problems that we have always been ready for. But XISS prepares managers and leaders who can handle tomorrow's brittle, anxious, non-linear, and incomprehensible challenges.
l Out-of-the-box thinking: There is a pressing need to revisit, reinvent, reimagine our life and work with an attitude of thinking differently. Adaptation and resilience are the keys not only to one’s survival but to one’s thriving and flourishing. The new-age leader must be an expert at converting challenges into opportunities and thus making the most of the situation.
l Creating sustainable and conscious leaders: The value proposition from XISS is not limited to a flourishing career as a professional in HRM, Marketing, Finance, and Rural Management but an all-round development as a conscientious, compassionate, committed, competent and humane with a deep sense of integrity and character in all spheres of life.
l All-round development of students: Entrepreneurship is going to be the new normal in some days. Institutes must make sure that they proactively analyze this change and hence train students in all possible directions, be it developing acumen for industry aptness or thriving as a flourishing entrepreneur.
l The awakening after covid: The very existence of human life was threatened when Covid 19 hit. All that happened, happened for a reason, the moral and ethical selves within us were awakened. XISS understands the needs of such situations and has taken up the mammoth task of creating leaders who think holistically. The institute nurtures leaders who are equipped with skills that favor coexistence on this planet.
l The clubs: Students at XISS engage in several clubs and communities on campus to build a spirit of entrepreneurship and prepare themselves for the challenges that they will be facing in the professional world. These clubs and communities can be grouped under cultural, recreational, intellectual, professional & charitable. The intensive experience with the clubs at XISS is aimed to prepare a student for the role of an ethical future manager.
