Executive Diploma in HRM - India


For Working Executives

True to the spirit of the statement that the ultimate success parameter for Human Resource Development is the death of HR Department, Organizations are increasingly becoming appreciative of the developmental role that their managers must play in developing employees. While many a line manager has that basic urge to develop the employees, more often than not they are handicapped by a lack of professional knowledge and skills that are essential to play the HR role effectively. It is also very common for such managers occupying positions in the HR department in many organizations in India without having adequate professional qualifications. While experience might have been the backbone of effective performance in the corporate world of yesterday, knowledge and continuous learning is the mainstay amongst the best organizations of today.

It is against this backdrop that XLRI has started a consolidated program in Human Resource management in 2005. The program aims to provide an opportunity for them to study and earn an Executive Diploma in HRM, while working, without interrupting their career.

  • To provide an opportunity to the participants to earn a professional qualification in HR
  • To provide the participants with an in-depth understanding of various concepts in HR
  • To get tuned to the latest developments and best practices in H R
  • To prepare the participants to head the HR function in the operating divisions
  • To develop a repository of HR experts who can lead change in the organization.

The programme is of 16 months duration with four terms. The programme comprises of 15 compulsory courses spread over the first three terms and the fourth term is exclusively devoted to Action Research Based Project.

The participant will choose an area of his/her interest. Closely working with their faculty guides, they will identify a real problem related to HR in their organizations and do an action research based on that. The project is equivalent to four courses and would draw heavily from the learning of the previous terms. The evaluation will be jointly done by the faculty guide and by an expert from within/outside the participant’s organization.

In the first three terms, there will be two contact sessions per-term, which

will be residential in nature. Each course will have 8-10 day contact sessions.

There will be four sessions per day of 90 minutes each. Internal faculty will handle two courses while an external resource person (preferably a practitioner) may handle the third. The schedule may be flexible.

During the term break, the students are expected to spend time on projects and assignments, which would be about 25 hours per course. Term end examination will be held usually during the course of the following term.


The examination and evaluation required for certification shall be carried out by XLRI, Jamshedpur. The faculty members teaching their respective courses will choose the method of evaluation most appropriate to the material. The certificate will be awarded directly by XLRI, Jamshedpur. Each concerned faculty will evaluate the participants. Assessment in all the courses is continuous, varied and exacting.
