St. Xavier’s University, Kolkata held the inauguration of its Xavier Business School (XBS) on August 7, 2018. The Chief Guest was Xaverian Sanjiv Goenka, Chairman of RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Woodlands Medical Centre Ltd., a premier hospital in Kolkata.
The Vice-Chancellor, Fr. Felix Raj, in his inaugural address, said, “Being a Jesuit institute and inspired by the Ignatian charism, XBS aims to form global leaders for today and tomorrow to create a better world. To us, every student is indeed a burning candle that lights up other candles.”
Be entrepreneurs and not managers; that was the advice from St Xavier's University Vice-Chancellor Father Felix Raj to the first batch of students of the institute's B-school. "There is a difference between a manager and an entrepreneur. A manager will add value to a company but an entrepreneur will multiply...," Fr. Felix Raj said.
"You are beginning a new chapter in the history of St Xavier's by joining as the first batch of MBA students... Please remember once a Xaverian, you will always call yourself a Xaverian... The aim of the B-School is not just to produce managers... We are looking at future leaders of industry and the country," he said.
Being a Jesuit University, it takes inspiration from St. Ignatius of Loyola, who founded the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) about 500 years ago. The Ignatian Pedagogy is a well-known educational methodology, which is followed in several Jesuit Universities and Centers of Higher Learning. Xavier Business School will also be inspired and guided by this Pedagogy and Methodology.
XBS provides state of the art infrastructural facilities – Smart and air-conditioned classrooms, separate hostels for men and women, food courts, green environment and so on.
