Xavier Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship or XIME is a top rated B-School in Bengaluru and Kochi, established by the former director of IIM Bangalore, Prof. J. Philip. XIME aims to provide affordable "world class" business programmes that are relevant with the Indian business environment and ethos. It emphasizes on the entrepreneurial spirit and diverse skill development that is embodied within the hearts of its founders and believes in inculcation of the same through its curriculum, forging the leaders of tomorrow. Coupled with a sprawling 4.3 acre campus with top multinational corporations in its vicinity to promote academia - industry interaction, it is one of the few institutes apart from the IIM's to provide a fully residential MBA program.
XIME offers full time 2 year Post Graduate Diploma Programs in Management in various disciplines and accepts XAT/CAT/CMAT/MAT scores. The cut off percentile for XIME is 70 + and the merit list is prepared for the shortlisted candidates for the Group Discussion and Personal Interview Round. The entrance test scores are only subjective in terms of clearing the cutoff and have no significant value in the final selection process.
