Xavier University Bhubaneswar (XUB) is promoted by and has grown from the three decades of distinguished existence of XIMB, a premier B-school for distinctive, value-based management education. At Xavier University we are committed to innovations and excellence in education, and education for all in the spirit of "Magis" - the philosophy of doing more and for the greater good of society and for others. We strive to ‘Inspire Futures’ of students, to walk the extra mile and explore alternative ways to sustainable and humane futures. We continuously expand our range of programmes to groom competent, committed, compassionate, value-based and visionary leaders and professionals. Today the University includes six Schools providing management education for diverse fields from corporate businesses, social enterprises and non-profits to development programs, sustainability initiatives and media.

The vision of XCOMP is to help make Bhubaneswar an international level Knowledge hub with a wide variety of cutting edge companies in Computing, Informatics and related fields. We envision an internationally recognized school whose graduates, in large numbers, go on to create their own companies. We envision a school whose faculty, students and researchers produce innovative world-class research. We envision an environment that attracts and develops companies from their incubation stage to an established level. Overall, we envision a school that acts as a knowledge magnet and contributes to all aspects of making Bhubaneswar an international level Knowledge hub in Computing, Informatics and related fields.

XCOMP will establish a strong and engaging group of adjunct and visiting faculty...

Following are some of the key philosophy behind XCOMP and some of its key aspects:

XCOMP will leverage the high quality of business programs at XUB to become an unique school of computer science in India and the world where entrepreneurship and creation of start-ups[1] will be emphasized, facilitated and promoted at all levels.  There will be a high emphasis on embedding the culture of innovation and entrepreneurial activities. In partnership with the business school faculty and students, new interest groups will be created, nurtured, and encouraged to foster the growth in this mission. An incubation center on campus would be established to pursue these goals in a more focused manner, in particular, to promote and nurture Computer Science related start-up companies that may be established by faculty and students of XCOMP or that collaborate or hire faculty and students of XCOMP.  The center will have facilities that will make it easy for a company to rent space, computers, servers, Internet connectivity, etc. and start operations within a day or 2.  XCOMP will have start-up competitions and will fund a bootstrap amount to the winners of these competitions so that they can start operations immediately.
