Top management positions increasingly go to global citizens – people who have lived overseas and therefore, understand many business cultures. Get this edge with our Global MBA program, where every student lives and studies in Asia, Australia and the Middle East. The program provides insight into some of the latest and most innovative areas of business management, and focuses specially on helping students appreciate, accept and adapt to different business and cultural environments.

In our twelve-year history, we have been ranked by three of the world’s top four business school rankings – Forbes, Financial Times and the Economist. In each of these rankings, we are the youngest school featured – an accomplishment we attribute to our unique and innovative model of business education.
Understanding the global business environment is key to business success, and at SP Jain, students learn this by living and studying in a minimum of three international cities. So in addition to learning the various tools of business (like most university graduates), our students understand the global nature of business in the most compelling way – through actual exposure to diverse cultures, political beliefs, traditions and technological innovations.
In addition to living and studying in some of the world’s top economic centres, our students participate in special global learning classes where business frameworks are studied and tested. They interact with local companies and conduct real-time application-based projects that help them really understand the interconnected nature of business, the influence and impact of culture on consumer preferences and business decisions, global collaboration and best practices, and the risks of stepping out of one’s home country. In addition to the global knowledge gained, students learn to be adaptable, multicultural and globally relevant to companies of the 21st century.
The Masters degree that you are pursuing has to prepare you to make critical decisions. After all, decision-making is the lifeblood of a business manager. At SP Jain, students learn to master this skill uniquely – through the use of highly advanced computer-aided simulations. These simulations are embedded in the program curriculum and conducted over the course of the program, resulting in graduates who are able to think on their feet and make quick, smart decisions from the get-go.
We don’t believe in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. That’s why, as a postgraduate student at SP Jain, you will be engaged and motivated using a wide variety of teaching tools like simulations, online lessons, decision-making laboratories, global immersion exercises, guest lectures, industry sessions, research projects, student boardrooms and interactive discussions.
A vibrant new feature of the postgraduate curriculum is the introduction of a Blended Model of Learning. Conventional MBA programs are made of a combination of knowledge-centric courses and their application in the real world. SP Jain’s recently revamped postgraduate curriculum, on the other hand, uses advanced online tools (like webinars, multimedia lessons, problem solving sessions) to deliver foundational and knowledge-based courses to students. It is believed that the discipline of online learning enhances LEARNING AGILITY (the ability to self-learn) and better retention of business fundamentals since students learn at a pace that suits them.
On campus, the focus is on more advanced application-based topics that teach students to:
  • Ask the right questions to frame issues
  • Use the right tools to analyse data
  • Synthesise information to create value
  • Innovate using Design Thinking
  • Use digital technology to develop high-quality solutions; and
  • Add value to future employers

In the initial term of the program, students build on their experience and gain a solid foundation in business through core courses in general topics of management like Economics, Finance, Statistics and Marketing. These courses are common and are required for all students, irrespective of their areas of specialisation.


Industry experts believe that management takes place on two levels: cross-functional and vertical, and we reflect this by offering students a range of specialisations that equip them with the knowledge and specific tools that their future careers will demand.
The following specialisations will be offered to students:
  • Contemporary Marketing Management
  • Information Technology Management
  • Global Finance
  • Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management
  • Consulting Management

*Each intake may offer a few or all of these specializations.  



Choosing the right area of focus can influence one’s career growth. Our wide range of electives have been designed keeping in mind the requirements of each focus area. Rich in content and quality, these cutting-edge electives are ideal for executives desirous of gaining an edge in today's competitive economy. 

Employers in virtually every field seek two key skills in their employees: leadership and communication. SP Jain's strong focus in these areas gives its students an edge in the workforce. The Passport 2 Excellence (P2E) program emphasises all aspects of leadership including personality development and decision-making. Not only are graduates well prepared to maintain strong leadership roles within their companies, but also to make a strong impact on their communities.
Besides leadership skills, in the P2E program, students learn:
  • Effective business writing including how to analyse situations to determine the most appropriate method of communication, tone, and level of formality.
  • Oral communication including interviews, presentations, spontaneous conversations, persuasive/dissuasive arguments, group discussions, and e-communication.
  • Increased fluency in English to better perform in a global, English-speaking business environment.
  • Communication management including theory, conflict resolution, and crisis communication.
  • Research and citation skills for better, results-oriented reporting.
  • Understanding the job interview process from both sides of the desk. Knowledge of how interviews are conducted will not only help executives with their own recruiting, but also the interviewees to prepare correctly for and overcome nervousness in interviews.
We take great pride in ensuring that each student gets a good job at the end of their GMBA program and is well placed for a successful career. And our Corporate Readiness Program, or CRP, will prepare you in a comprehensive way. Our work with students as part of the CRP involves pairing them with their individual career objectives, work experience, educational background and more importantly, positioning them for the next level in their careers. CRP also covers students' professional presentation, the finer points of their voice and body language, their profile and how they present and execute a job interview.To enable this, we put students through a minimum of 4 rounds of mock interviews. 
To enable this, we put students through a minimum of four rounds of mock interviews. Our international faculty, alumni and industry partners organise these interviews (some of which are video recorded for detailed evaluation). If students are found to be unprepared, further intensive training is organised for them.
The Industry Interface Projects contextualise learning by taking students from theory to practice. Students first gain knowledge, functional understanding and exposure to the industry environment. Later they integrate and apply the knowledge as they grapple with a problem facing a real company.
The idea is to minimise reliance on internet research and to maximise primary research and tacit knowledge and application. This fosters a natural progression from a structured decision-making (required at the operational levels) to commanding unstructured situations (required of senior management).
The Industry Interface Projects consist of the Applied Research Project and the Action Learning Project or Entrepreneurship Project.
