SP Jain in the News

SP Jain London School of Management granted degree-awarding rights, making history as first Indian-origin institute to receive new degree awarding powers in the UK


SP Jain London School of Management (SPJ London) announced today that it has been granted degree-awarding powers by the Office for Students (OfS), UK, becoming the first higher education institute of Indian origin to receive this prestigious recognition. OfS is the independent regulator for higher education in England, and the granting of degree-awarding powers is a remarkable distinction, with only four higher education providers receiving this recognition in the past three years, all of which are UK-based institutions.

This honour cements SPJ London’s position as a leading business school in the UK and empowers the institution to independently confer degrees without the need to partner with any institution in the UK, enabling it to shape a cutting-edge practical curriculum, assemble a distinguished faculty, and award UK degrees upon program completion.

"This is a truly significant milestone for SPJ London,” shared Nitish Jain, Founder & President of the SP Jain Group, which operates SPJ London. "The granting of the degree-awarding rights not only validates our commitment to providing exceptional education but also positions us as a frontrunner in the global higher education landscape. We are proud to be the first Indian-origin institution to achieve this recognition, and we remain dedicated to nurturing future business leaders and empowering them to make a positive impact in the world."

In addition to this, SPJ London also announced its new exchange and articulation agreement with the top-ranked SP Jain School of Global Management (SP Jain Global). This agreement opens up unparalleled opportunities for students from both institutions to explore and study in some of the world's greatest cities, including London. Under this agreement, students enrolled at SPJ London will have the unique chance to travel to the campuses of SP Jain Global in Dubai, Singapore, Sydney, and Mumbai. Similarly, starting September 2023, students from SP Jain Global can enrol for a term or transfer to SPJ London, immersing themselves in the vibrant business environment of one of the world's most influential cities – London.

"The exchange and articulation agreement between SPJ London and SP Jain Global further enriches the educational experience for our students," added Mr Jain. "This collaboration underscores our commitment to fostering a global mindset and equipping students with the skills and knowledge required to excel in an interconnected world. We believe that this partnership will significantly enhance the value we deliver to our students and further solidify our position as a leader in global business education."
