Adapt to different business environments, cultures & market conditions. Immerse in new cultures, step out of your comfort zone, develop cross-cultural understanding, gain real-world experience and engage some of the world’s top companies with our Master of Global Business (MGB) program. Designed exclusively for graduates with little or no work experience, the program trains you to appreciate and adapt to different business environments, cultures and market conditions, preparing you for a lifetime of decision-making and leadership.

16 month program (includes a mandatory 4-month internship)
0-3 years work experience required
Study in Dubai, Singapore and Sydney
Graduate with an Australian degree
In the last five years of our short but decorated 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 Master’s 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.
The internship is an important element of the MGB program. That’s because it offers students, with little or no experience, the opportunity to supplement their academic accomplishments with real-life experience, make meaningful contributions to companies, build strong professionals contacts and explore full-time career opportunities. Over 60 percent of students from our MGB Intake of 2014 (May) converted their internships to full-time careers.
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
 

To fulfil the requirements of the MGB program, students must complete 41 credits.

 
  SUBJECTS   CREDITS 
  CORE COURSES   23
  SPECIALISATIONS   12  
  GLOBAL IMMERSION PROJECT    6
  TOTAL    41

The program includes 4 months of academic study at each of our 3 campuses + a mandatory 4-month internship. 

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.

CURRICULUM & CREDITS

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 in the Intake of May 2017:
  • e-Business (September Intake Only)
  • Contemporary Marketing Management
  • Global Finance
  • Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management

A unique feature of the MGB program is the GLOBAL IMMERSION PROJECT. Undertaken in each of the three terms of the MGB program, the Projects are directed towards creating a higher degree of exposure to real corporate environments.
 
The idea is to enhance the employability and professional readiness of students, and this is achieved by helping them assimilate a body of knowledge and testing it in live situations. Barclays, Citibank, DAMCO, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, PepsiCo, Shell Marine, KPMG, HCL, MasterCard and Lenovo are some of the companies that have in the past hosted our students for Global Immersion Projects.

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 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, group discussions, presentations, spontaneous conversations, persuasive/dissuasive arguments 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.

Internship updates from the Intake of 2015 (January) are provided below:

  • Nearly 84% of students received offers of internships from companies based in Middle East and Southeast Asia.
