MASTER OF GLOBAL BUSINESS

Admissions open for the September 2019 & January 2020 intakes

A step-by-step guide

ADMISSION PROCESS

STEP 1

ELIGIBILITY

BACHELOR’S DEGREE

As the Master of Global Business (MGB) is a postgraduate program, you must already be a university graduate to apply. Applicants who do not have their final year results can apply for the intake but SP Jain Global can only make a conditional offer.

WORK EXPERIENCE

The applicant must have 0-3 years of full-time work experience.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY

An English Language Proficiency Score (ELPS) is a mandatory requirement for a student to obtain an Australian visa. At the time of applying for the program, a student is not required to show an ELPS. However, on being offered admission and prior to the course commencement, students are required to submit their score.

Acceptable scores are as follows:

  • IELTS minimum score of 6.5 (students may opt to appear for the Academic or General IELTS test)
  • TOEFL iBT minimum score of 70
  • Pearson Test of English (PTE) minimum score of 60

English Language Test scores must be submitted on or before August 5, 2019 (for the September 2019 intake) and December 5, 2019 (for the January 2020 intake). Only test scores obtained in the last 2 years will be considered valid.

STEP 2

APPLICATION

  • Submit your application online.
  • Candidates only need to submit one application but may apply for two specialisations with a single application. Admission is offered for only one specialisation and the applicant cannot make changes to the offer. Duplication of applications may lead to a candidate's form/admission being disqualified.
  • If you do not desire placement services or are taking a leave of absence from your present employer (with a commitment to re-join them), mark the relevant box in the application form. Candidates accepted under ‘non-placements’ cannot change to ‘placement’ category.
  • Applications are considered on a rolling basis (i.e. evaluated when they are received); so, the sooner you apply, the better your chances are for being selected.

 

APTITUDE TEST

SP Jain Global requires candidates to take one of the following aptitude tests: GMAT, GRE, CAT or SPJAT (SP Jain Aptitude Test).

Candidates may apply even if they have not yet taken the aptitude test, or if their scores are pending. However, candidates will not be shortlisted for evaluation until they submit final test scores. We accept the best score from any of these tests with a minimum test score of:

  • GMAT score of 650 (tested on or after August 1, 2016)
  • GRE score of 320 (tested on or after August 1, 2016)
  • CAT score in the 80th percentile (results declared in January 2018 or January 2019)
  • SPJAT score in the 80th percentile (tested on or after August 1, 2017)

If you do not have a valid GMAT/GRE or CAT score, you may appear for the SP Jain Aptitude Test (SPJAT).

STEP 3

APPLICATION SCREENING

The Admissions Committee will carefully review your application, aptitude test scores, and the supporting documents you provide. If shortlisted, you will be invited for further evaluation and interviews.

PROFILE-BASED SHORTLISTING

A key objective of our MGB program is to build a classroom with students from diverse backgrounds, industries, cultures, experiences and nationalities, who can come together and collectively contribute to the learning process. We do consider candidates who have exceptional academic records/overall profiles but may have aptitude test scores below our cut-offs.

STEP 4

EVALUATION & INTERVIEWS

Shortlisted candidates are required to take the evaluation. Evaluation includes writing essays, analysing case studies and panel interviews. Candidates are required to pay a non-refundable USD 100 as the evaluation fee.

STEP 5

ADMISSION

You will be emailed an admission decision approximately 3-5 days after the Evaluation. Only candidates who have been offered admission will be notified via email.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

 

I do not meet the entry requirements. Can I still apply?

SP Jain Global selects students with a high academic performance. However, you may still apply and we will consider your overall profile including previous academic records, relevant work experience, extra-curricular activities and more.

 

I am currently working in Dubai/Singapore/Sydney/Mumbai. Can I work and pursue the MGB program at the same time or will I need to quit my job?

MGB is a full-time program which does not permit you to work and study at the same time.

 

I haven't received my final graduation results. Can I still apply to the program?

Yes, you can apply to the program prior to receiving your final results. You can also appear for the SP Jain Aptitude Test (SPJAT) and go through the evaluation process. However, until you receive your graduation results, you can only be offered a conditional offer of acceptance to the MGB program.

 

I want to apply for two specialisations. Do I need to submit two applications?

No, you should not submit two applications. You can apply for two specialisations in a single application for MGB. Submitting more than one application is strictly not allowed and will lead to a candidate's admission being disqualified.

 

I have applied for a passport but have not received it yet. Can I still apply?

Yes, you can still apply. However, for the September 2019 intake, you need to have your passport in hand by September 2, 2019 as we need it to process your student visas.

 

Does SP Jain Global hold Information Sessions?

Yes, SP Jain Global holds several engaging sessions for students where they are able to interact with the program personnel, ask questions and get all their queries resolved. For more details on events, see Information Sessions.
