SP Jain launches 13 short online courses for students and working professionals


SP Jain School of Global Management has launched 13 new short online courses for undergraduates, postgraduates and working professionals. These 30/60-hour courses will commence from July 2020 onwards and will cater to the growing trend of upskilling in a fast-evolving and uncertain world.

SP Jain launches 13 short online courses for students and working professionals

What is unique about these new courses is that they will be taught using a brand-new learning model called Premium Learning Online (PLO) which has been carefully designed to be on par with face-to-face classes on campus.

SP Jain’s latest online learning initiative has been featured in leading publications including Mid-Day, Deccan Herald, Financial Express, The Education Times, Shiksha, Collegedunia, Careers360, College Dekho, GetMyUni, Digital Learning Magazine and more.



“Online is the future of education. But they have a fundamental flaw in that they are unable to engage and excite students. Unsurprisingly, most students drop out within a few sessions. Our new Premium Learning Online courses are taught live (using our new Engaged Learning Online technology) by top Indian and international faculty that we have hand-picked for their proven success and expertise. Students learn by doing; not listening. We call this a ‘Lab-style approach of learning’, and this is truly a game-changer as far as online education is concerned,” shares Mr Jain.

What is the Lab-style approach?

Every 15 minutes, students are given a practical problem to solve in a study group comprising 3-5 students. With this, students get the chance to apply theory to practice in a fun and engaging way and get immediate actionable feedback. A spokesperson then presents the findings to the rest of the class.

Dr Silvia Vianello, one of the lead faculty teaching these courses, shares, “The curriculum is action-packed with projects, case studies, group discussions and more; the objective is to make sure that students develop in-demand and relevant skills to enhance their employability.” Dr Vianello, who hails from Italy, is a social media influencer with over a million followers and has been featured in Forbes’ list of Top 100 Italian Women. Admissions for her 30-hour course on ‘How to Become a Social Media Influencer’ are open and classes will commence on August 9, 2020.
