About Us

This is how our story begun

The Rural Managers’ Association of XIM University (RMAX) is a recognised student body of XIM University Bhubaneswar. Our inception roots back to the year 2001 when some students of rural management at Xavier Institute of Management Bhubaneswar (XIMB) started an informal group to arrange some functional activities for the students of rural management. In the year 2004 we became a recognised student body at Xavier Institute of Management Bhubaneswar (XIMB). From then RMAX has never looked back and constantly worked on its vision of “Learning by doing and Learning beyond the books”.

With the passage of time it has grown with the growth of XIMB. When the Xavier University Bhubaneswar (XUB) was established in the year 2013, the rural management area of XIMB got its new identity as an independent school named as Xavier School of Rural Management (XSRM). Since then the Rural Managers’ Association of XIMB renamed itself to Rural Managers’ Association of XSRM. But the name RMAX remained same even after the re-branding in 2014. In the year 2021, Xavier University, Bhubaneswar became XIM University. Team RMAX has always tried to keep the legacy intact set by the founding fathers of RMAX.

Mission: To help the 'to be rural managers' in developing their core competencies by providing them a real time learning experience through a variety of activities and events.

Vision: Learning by Doing and Learning Beyond the Books
