Richard Coller, Director of Professional Readiness at SP Jain’s Sydney campus, attributes this success to the School’s unique multi-city model that has proven to transform its students from ordinary graduates to confident business leaders. “Our students have had the unique advantage of studying in not one, but a minimum of three global cities – Singapore, Dubai and Sydney. At each location, they have had opportunities to pursue projects, out-of-class activities and, also, internships that have made them very relevant and attractive to leading companies in Australia and around the world,” shares Mr Coller.

SP Jain Global launched the BBA in 2010, becoming the world’s first business school to pioneer and offer a multi-city undergraduate program. “When we launched the BBA in 2010, we were considered to be somewhat of an outlier. We have since graduated over 650 students who have gone on to do very well in their global careers and that’s why today, companies believe in our model,” shares Nitish Jain, President of the School.

The BBA of SP Jain Global is a 4-year multi-city program that is accredited by Australia’s Tertiary Education Quality & Standards Agency (TEQSA). Students travel to Singapore/Mumbai for Year 1 of the program, Dubai for Year 2 and Sydney for Years 3 and 4, graduating with an Australian degree. Admissions are currently open to the January 2020 and September 2020 intakes of the program.
