SP Jain School of Global Management has been rated #1 among 133 institutes in Australia in the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) 2020 Survey, making it the school that has demonstrated the greatest improvement of all university and non-university higher education institutions in the country to ensure the quality of education amid a global pandemic. The survey results, released recently, place SP Jain as the #1 higher education institution in Australia, for overall improvement in student satisfaction.
The QILT surveys are the biggest government-endorsed surveys of their kind in Australia. Information gathered from these surveys help students make informed choices about their higher education options by bringing together data from all Australian universities about students' experiences and graduate job outcomes. Students can compare institutions based on the results of thousands of QILT surveys completed by current students and graduates. The surveys are based on a range of information, such as the satisfaction of face-to-face discussions, access to computers, graduate salaries, and employment outcomes.
The Graduate Outcomes Survey, in which SP Jain ranked #1, is a study of recent graduates three to six months after the completion of their studies. Students were surveyed on their short-term employment outcomes and further study activities.
Nitish Jain, President, SP Jain School of Global Management, shared, "The survey results are just further proof that our strategy to put students front and centre in all our activities has paid off. In a year of turbulence and significant external factors in the form of COVID-19 and the restrictions the pandemic caused, our students are not just satisfied with their education, but also with the skills and outcomes they have achieved, which are required to be professionals and contributing members of the business world."
Dr Vaidyanathan Jayaraman, Dean of the School's Undergraduate Programs and Professor – Supply Chain Operations, Data Sciences & Analytics, added, "The 2020 Student Satisfaction Survey was primarily conducted among 133 higher education institutions, including all 41 Australian universities and 92 Non-University Higher Education Institutions registered in Australia. As the saying goes, "The proof of the pudding lies in its eating" - in the case of SP Jain, this # 1 quality improvement rating further validates our never-ending quest for excellence and the continuous improvement philosophy that we have embraced in everything we follow and inculcate among the student body. Keeping the current scenario in mind, we have also adjusted our intake closing dates to ensure that the postponement of board exams does not have a drastic effect on the admission process, reiterating our philosophy of prioritising our students."
