In the article published in Higher Education Review, Dr Veena Jadhav, Associate Dean (Global MBA & Master of Global Business) and Associate Professor (Leadership & HRM), SP Jain School of Global Management, discusses the choice between a traditional single-campus MBA program and a multi-campus MBA program, highlighting the unique features of the latter.
“Most prestigious MBA programs have a strong core program offerings focused on enhancing graduate outcomes. Most B-Schools have fine-tuned their MBA offering to ensure cutting edge curriculum, faculty pool, thriving industry connect, career readiness programs and a vibrant alumni body. These USPs create a strong pull factor amongst aspiring MBA students who share strong values and interests in line with the B-school’s strategy. So, what makes a multi-campus MBA program distinct to a single campus, stand alone program? The answer can be summarised as ‘global adaptability’! At the heart of a multi-campus MBA program is strategy designed to offer several unique learning experiences for MBA participants, to understand their personal leadership and to expand their worldview and ability to embrace change through immersion” writes Dr Veena.
She adds, “The best way to develop understanding, appreciation and embracing diversity, divergent views and practices is immersion in diverse settings. These immersion opportunities are the cornerstone of multi-city MBA programs, one immersive experience has the potential to create a life-changing impression for participants that no amount of reading notes and case studies can substitute.”
