The course fee for the PGCBM programme is Rs. 2, 40,000/- and for PGCHRM is Rs. 2, 50,000/- payable in five installments. XLRI provides special discounts for corporate sponsorships as well.

This programme will provide management education to working executives without the need to leave their jobs or cities. The classes will be conducted by XLRI professors through a high-definition video conference-based virtual classroom platform. The course also includes a five-day intensive learning experience called the ‘Campus Component’ at the XLRI campus at Jamshedpur.

The participants will be awarded certification along with alumni status at a full-fledged formal graduation ceremony at XLRI, Jamshedpur.

The programmes have been designed for working executives to upgrade their business acumen and hone their managerial skills. This would add value to them personally, as well as professionally in their careers, without leaving their jobs, cities, and families.’
