Prof. Sharad Sarin, Chairperson, Alumni, XLRI said, “XLRI can claim to have the most active networking of Alumni amongst Indian Business Schools. Every year the alumni chapters have their get-togethers in cities across India and abroad. Recently, in October 2014, alumni meets were held in various cities in USA, Dubai and Toronto. In 2008 we had created the XLRI Endowment Fund (XEF) and very recently XEF USA has been registered as a non-profit association. Thus, helping our alumni based in USA contributing to the fund get income-tax deduction”.
