Xavier Institute of Management Bhubaneswar (XIMB) to open centres in Balangir and Sambalpur

Following is a report from The Pioneer:

The Xavier Institute of Management Bhubaneswar (XIMB) is expanding and will open two centres in Balangir and Sambalpur in western Odisha to provide higher education in Management.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has not only green-signalled the expansion project but has extended financial support for developing infrastructure for the new institutions. Both for the Balangir and Sambalpur centres, the State Government would provide a grant of Rs 20 crore from the kitty of the Western Odisha Development Council, said sources.

The proposal was sent to the CM by Minister Planning & Coordination and Public Enterprises AU Singh Deo. Singh Deo has pointed out that this part of the State does not have good educational institutions. So, opening branches of XIMB would fulfil this, he said.

The CM has favoured the idea and approved the proposal, said a senior officer in the Department of Planning & Coordination. Chief Secretary TK Mishra has also sided with the idea of supporting the XIMB for opening its branches.

The XIMB, engaged in developmental activities in Balangir district, has planned to start a programme on Rural Management with 60 students and General Management with specialisation in Banking and Financial Services with a similar capacity. XIMB Director Fr PT Joseph, SJ, has forwarded the proposal to the Department of Planning & Coordination for consideration.
