XAVIER University will now be known as XIM University
The founding of Xavier University took place on July 6, 2013. The Odisha Legislative Assembly enacted the Xavier University, Odisha (Amendment) Act 2021 on April 3, 2021, renaming Xavier University as XIM University. As a result, on May 11, 2021, the Gazette Notification was published. According to its requirements, the University has two campuses: its main campus is located in Nijigada Kurki, Harirajpur, in the Puri District, while another campus, home to the Xavier Institute of Management, is located in Xavier Square in Bhubaneswar.
The management and Board of Governors of Xavier University, Bhubaneswar, feel that the name 'Xavier University,' Odisha Act, 2013, should be replaced with 'XIM' University, Odisha Act as a result of time and based on the experience gained over the last seven years. To keep the 'XIM' brand name, which has been well-known in the country and overseas for 34 years since its launch, the institution had to change its name founding in 1987. Students who acquire a diploma branded with the "XIM" logo will have improved employment opportunities both domestically and overseas. The growth sectors, businesses, enterprises, and change leaders all recognise this brand. Through its broad network and connections, XIM has benefited the state of Odisha and the nation while bringing distinction, honour, and prestige to the state.
XIM University currently sees itself as a prestigious institution that offers top-notch students from all around the world a top-notch education. The 34-year-old XIM (Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar), the foremost, top-tier B-School in the nation, leaves behind the heritage of the XIM University. The ethos of "men and women for and with others" sums up who XIM University is. We all want to be men and women for and with others, but our faculty, staff, and students reflect a variety of religions and identities. What else sets a Jesuit XIM university apart? Experience, curiosity, global exposure, and "cura personalise," which translates to "care for the whole person," are all values that are instilled in our pupils. As a change agent, there is a great desire to be the first to address societal issues and promote sustainable societies that inspire the futures of the state and nation. This ideology emphasises moral character development, adaptability, world affirmation, and a righteous faith.
XIM University has grown from its humble beginnings in management education in 1987 to include 12 schools that provide doctorate, master's, and undergraduate programmes. We at XIM University are dedicated to working tirelessly to make sure that Odisha provides the globe with a top-notch, comprehensive development education.
