About the Organization

The Xavier Institute of Social Service (XISS) was established as an extension department of St. Xavier’s College, Ranchi, in 1955 with the objective of training young men and women in Rural Development, Personnel Management and Industrial Relations. In 1973 the institute was registered as a separate educational society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. In 1978, it moved to its present site and over the years has developed its own distinct identity as a centre of excellence in management education, research, consultancy and development interventions.

About the Course

The two-year Post-Graduate Diploma in Management (Human Resource Management) aims at preparing young men and women to face challenges in the domain of Human Resource Management. Apart from the fundamental theoretical inputs in Human Resource Management, Industrial Relations and Human Resource Development, the programme seeks to equip students with practical knowledge and requisite skills to be effective in their profession. Stress is laid on the development of dynamic personality by nurturing in the students, values and attitudes built on the firm edifice of keen social-awareness.

XISS has been offering two years Post Graduate Diploma in Personnel Management & Industrial Relations (PM&IR) approved by AICTE since 1994. This program was renamed in 2012 as PGDM-HRM.

Industrial tour is also an integral part of second year curriculum with a view to expose students to latest practices of industry.

Besides, the Annual Convocation for the graduating batch normally takes place in the month of April.

The Institute proposes to make its students agents of social change, who see their future not primarily as a career for self-enrichment but as a way of contributing their part to the basic evolution that is taking place in India today.

In this context, the imparting of knowledge and skills is of vital importance, but even more crucial is the purpose for which this knowledge and these skills are utilized. Will they contribute to justice for the poor and oppressed, more social concern, more honesty and cultural understanding, rather than the maintenance of the status quo and a lopsided distribution of power and benefits? This will, to a great extent, depends on the values that students carry with them when leaving the Institute.
