Important things for students to keep in mind:

  1. Students should note that no placement, no library, no shortcut to the regular XL program is provided by these courses. Note that these are not diploma courses either, these are certificate courses.
  2. You need to be present at a designated center to be able to attend the classes and have at least 75% attendance to be eligible for the certification
  3. Course material provided by XLRI  is sufficient to study for the exam
  4. You are allowed to take a break and continue with the program at a later date as per your schedule

Placement Assistance – VPNB

  • One of the key differentiators for this course is that XLRI has a placement notice board. Since only students can see what’s inside, we could not confirm as to how useful this might be.
  • However, the fact that they are providing such assistance is commendable. We were quite surprised by this new development. Link

Review – Who should be doing this course? 

  • If you are just looking for an MBA degree, then perhaps XLRI satellite courses are not just for you. If you are unsure as to what this course will do, then let this pass. It is for people who know as to what this course will deliver – ‘precisely’. Given the fee in comparison to a normal distance learning MBA option, this one should be chosen very carefully.
  • Our review is that if you are looking for a better than average distance course, then, by all means, consider XLRI as one of your most preferred choices. However, do set your expectations right. After all, it’s a distance program. In no way should you expect that this course will catapult your career like a regular MBA from XLRI.
