Management schools are an important part of one’s career success. I happened to explore one such school and thought of sharing my insights with you.
S P Jain School of Global Management is one of Asia’s leading business schools. It offers a wide variety of graduate and post graduate courses across 4 campuses located in Dubai, Singapore, Mumbai and Sydney. Their courses are uniquely crafted with the aim of grooming global business leaders for the 21st century workplace. Their multi-campus learning model is a brilliant way of making the courses relevant and global.
S P Jain has prestigious international rankings despite being the youngest business school. It has recently been ranked No. 1 in Dubai’s Global Brands Magazine in 2015. Its one year GMBA program was ranked No. 10 Best International Business School in the world by Forbes in the same year. Forbes also ranked the business school among top 20 Best International Business Schools in 2013-14.
These rankings can be attributed to its innovative medium of teaching which includes Blended Learning – combining the best of face to face learning with e-learning. Students are assigned a set of pre-learning modules before the academic year commences, preparing every student with the background of the course, bringing everyone to the same level of knowledge. The precious classroom learning thus becomes more discussion -based with peers and faculty.
The tri-city model is also an interesting concept in S P Jain School of Global Management where students get an opportunity to study in multiple campuses during a course. For instance, the Global MBA program has students spend about 4 months in each of the campuses in Dubai, Sydney and Singapore. This is a great way to help students apply their learning to international contexts, understand regional economy apart and extend their global networks.
With such noteworthy characteristics of the school, it has over 150 companies across industries participating in the placement process that functions all year around for its various courses.. Some of the recruiters’ industries include automobile, finance, marketing, manufacturing, consulting among others. The quality of these placements stands testimony to the excellence of their teaching and the relevance of the curriculum.
Therefore, it also shouldn’t come as a surprise that S P Jain alumni are placed in the best jobs in their respective industries. The alumni have a track record of leading projects, heading organisations and making a mark in their fields. S P Jain School alumni have risen in their jobs and have been through leadership programs of international repute.
