The Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar owes its origin to a Social Contract between the Government of Orissa and the OJS (Orissa Jesuit Society). The Management of the institute is in the hands of a Governing Board, consisting of representatives from the Jesuit Society, Government of India, Government of Orissa and eminent industrialists and educationists.
Since its inception in 1987, Institute has heen offering quality management education with a human face. During this short span of its existence, XIM has established an identity of its own, and it is getting to be known not only for its Post-Graduate Programmes but also for projects usually not found in management institutions in India or elsewhere.
