Dr Balakrishna Grandhi, Dean of the School’s Global MBA & Master of Global Business programs, attributes this success to the School’s unique tri-city learning model that has proven to transform its students from ordinary graduates to 21st century global business leaders. SP Jain Global, which has campuses in the leading business cities of Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore and Sydney, is known for pioneering and offering the world’s first tri-city undergraduate and postgraduate programs.
“Our students have a unique edge when it comes to competing for global jobs. Having lived and studied in three of the world’s top business cities, they have first-hand knowledge of how to operate and succeed in a global business environment. They know how to work in global teams; they are globally minded and emotionally intelligent and these skills have continued to reap rewards in the form of better jobs and salaries long after they graduate. Our many rankings by the world’s top international publications are testimony to this,” shares Dr Grandhi.
Our Global MBA program was recently ranked #12 in the world by Forbes, ahead of Hong Kong University, HEC Montreal, Erasmus (Rotterdam), Cass and Hult. The Forbes ranking is based on the return on investment achieved by business school graduates in their first five years post-MBA. Previously, the School has also featured in prominent international rankings by the Financial Times, Times Higher Education-Wall Street Journal, Nielsen and The Economist.
