The PGCBM programme, started in 2005 in XIMB, is a one year programme designed for working executives across the country. It uses video conferencing to enable a highly interactive classroom like mode of learning. It also has an intensive seven day residential programme at the XIMB campus. A customized version of the programme is also designed for the benefit of corporations.

The PGC(R & R and CSR) is India's first one-year course on management of Resettlement and Rehabilitation (R & R) and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), co-ordinated by The Centre for Resettlement, Rehabilitation and Corporate Social Responsibility (CRRCSR) at Xavier Institute of Management Bhubaneswar (XIMB) to foster research and training in the area of R&R and CSR. CRRCSR has got the mandate from the Government of Orissa to actively participate in the state's R&R/CSR initiatives.

Many corporate projects today require Resettlement and Rehabilitation (R&R) of project affected people, in a way that is indicative of inclusive growth. Corporations today are looking for ways to integrate their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) agenda with their R&R plans. There is a need to build capacity and competence in these two areas, and programmes like these are an important step in this direction.
