Rev. Dr. C. Joe Arun, SJ
Welcome to Loyola Institute of Business Administration (LIBA). LIBA, one of the premier management schools of India, is part of the Loyola College Society, managed by Jesuits well known for their outstanding contribution to education. Jesuit led institutions have a worldwide presence and include several prestigious institutions in India – Loyola College, Chennai, St Xavier’s Mumbai, St Xavier’s Kolkota, XLRI, Jamshedpur and XIM, Bhubaneswar. In fact, in India they pioneered management education. LIBA is proud of its heritage and tradition. Excellence and Ethics, two important hallmarks of Jesuit education are significant elements of LIBA’s DNA. We are here to develop competent and committed leaders with skills to excel in the market place, leaders who are ethical, principled and socially conscious, leaders with a global perspective and an entrepreneurial spirit. We strive towards the holistic formation of men and women – growth in all areas of human endeavour – intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual. With our highly qualified faculty, through mentoring and personal attention, LIBA focuses on the care of each individual which is another hallmark of Jesuit education.
Our academic programme is comparable to the best programmes of the world, constantly monitoring the global economic scenario and the industrial environment and offering courses needed for the future global business leaders. This year we have introduced a new specialization in ‘Business Analytics’. We are proud of our excellent placement record, 100% from its inception in 1995. Placement is not the only goal of business education, we also believe in fostering an environment that develops professional identities that integrate knowledge with ethics and social consciousness. LIBA provides numerous opportunities to develop your leadership skills. Frequent interaction with industrial leaders, outbound programmes, rural exposure, corporate internships, and industry-academia conferences open up many opportunities for the overall growth of the students. I assure you, that you will have a wonderful experience at LIBA as our former students vouch for. I welcome you to LIBA. God Bless you. I wish you a brilliant future.
