XIMB has been offering PGDM, PGDM-HRM, PGDM-RM, PGDM-PT (all awarding diplomas), and FPM programmes introduced over a period of time. Consequent upon becoming a part of the Xavier University, these programmes have been renamed as MBA, MHRM, MBA-RM, MBA-PT & Integrated PhD Programmes, since with the degree granting status of the Xavier University, Bhubaneswar.
It is expected that by moving from diploma to degree, we will be more acceptable to graduating students both in India and abroad, and no further diploma equalization or degree equivalence certificate will be required to be produced.In terms of quality, content, durations etc. the MBA programmes are exactly identical to the PGDM programmes, which were earlier awarded accreditations from NBA, and SAQS by the Association of Management Development Institutions in South Asia (AMDISA).The Institute is also a member of AACSB and is on track for being awarded the AACSB Accreditation.
The MBA programmes are as per the academic standards set by the AICTE for PGDM Programmes.
