Overview

The Dubai campus sets an atmosphere that motivates a student to learn management courses such as GMBA (Global MBA), BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration), EMBA (executive mba) and explore, and derive benefits from interactions with the multinational student community of the Dubai International Academic City (DIAC).


The DIAC is a purpose-built campus exclusively for colleges and universities. It provides a single location for post secondary education in the Emirate bringing together 30 institutions from 13 different countries, allowing students and faculty coming from different institutions to connect and learn from each other.


S P Jain occupies an entire stand-alone building covering approximately 60,000 square feet, spread over three floors.


The campus is built in a contemporary fashion, with hi-tech learning centres, mock trading rooms, an up-do-date library, video conferencing facility, a Reuters terminal and more. The in-campus cafeteria along with the food court of the Academic City offers multinational cuisine to the students. Students also participate in various festivals and theme events hosted by S P Jain and other schools of the Academic City.


The whole environment gives the students a comprehensive learning experience as well as a chance to understand what it means to be a global citizen.



Dubai

The modern city of Dubai was founded in 1799, although Dubai has been mentioned in historical records since 1095, and shows evidence even of Neolithic inhabitants. Most people associate Dubai with oil wealth, but the government has followed a progressive policy of diversification. Today oil accounts for less than 6% of Dubai's revenue, with the bulk of its economy based on trade, financial services, and tourism. Because of its low taxes and free-enterprise zones, Dubai is a trade hub for much of the Middle East. Today it has almost two million inhabitants, and a developing social and cultural life. Census figures indicate that citizens from 188 different nations live in Dubai.


Dubai has emerged as a multicultural capital that has grown steadily to become a global city.The city has recently attracted worldwide attention through many ground-breaking large construction projects and sports events, and has become symbolic for its skyscrapers, such as the world's tallest Burj Khalifa, in addition to inspiring development projects including man-made islands, hotels, and some of the largest shopping malls in the region and the world. In 2012, Dubai was ranked as the 22ndmost expensive city in the world, exceeding London (25th) and as the most expensive city in the Middle East, exceeding Israel's Tel Aviv (31st). Dubai has also been rated as one of the best places to live in the Middle East, in addition tothe American global consulting firm Mercer which rated the city as the best place to live in the Middle East in 2011.
