Through a carefully crafted curriculum that is delivered online, SP Jain transforms your learning experience. Using dynamic digital resources and various online learning styles and teaching methods, the program builds independent learning skills in an environment where knowledge is electronic and easily accessible, however, subject to rapid change.

Using a combination of learning tools and applications, designed in partnership with SP Jain’s Academic Team and various leading online delivery providers and publications, the program’s e-learning modules comprise webinars, podcasts, Skype sessions, and discussion boards, in addition to online tutorials. To ensure that the program design remains flexible, clearly structured study modules include learning activities - one that encompasses regular active learning opportunities with interaction between students and faculty.

Participants of the program are guided and stimulated by a world-class body of local and international faculty who teach our full-time and part-time programs on campus. With peers and faculty from all around the world, students will gain the opportunity to draw insights about global cultures and conducts, a vital part of studying business. Advanced technologies used as part of the online program generate real-time reports that help identify concepts that require more attention from individual students or the entire class — helping faculty members drive teaching.

In the last six years of our short but decorated thirteen-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.

The Diploma in Business program makes use of innovative, student-centred technology platforms that enables students to use advanced learning methodologies to facilitate learning. Students are expected to complete 8 subjects as part of the core courses of 3 credits each.

Participants seeking a transfer to second year of SP Jain undergraduate courses will need to undertake two extra modules as part of their course structure which can be completed during the regular semesters or over the summer.

  • Global Citizenship
  • Regional Immersion Project

Students are expected to complete 8 subjects of 3 credits each as part of the program.

SEMESTER 1: 

  • Principles of Management
  • Business English Writing
  • Macroeconomics
  • Mathematics & Computer Skills

SEMESTER 2: 

  • Financial Accounting
  • Marketing
  • Business Oral Communication
  • Microeconomics
The 12-month online module offers incredible flexibility in business education and lays the foundation to pursue further studies in business management. The learning design supports independent learning and caters to a range of learning styles.
 
  • Learning Management System (LMS)
Students gain access to subject content and a range of opportunities for interaction through a dedicated website developed using either Blackboard or Moodle Learning Management Systems. The LMS will provide a suite of interactive tools, such as discussion boards, blogs, journals, and quizzes which will support active learning opportunities.
 
  • Live Webinar Sessions
Weekly webinars will provide students a detailed explanation of major content and key concepts, issues, and applications. These are opportunities to engage students, offer learning support and guidance, and for students to interact with teaching staff, respond to questions/problems and ask questions in an immediate and responsive learning environment.
 
  • Online Tutorial Programs
Online tutorial programs are an addition to the webinars which offer opportunities throughout the study period in each subject for students to come together and work through specific problems/issues with the faculty. Online tutorials are also recorded (where appropriate) to create re-usable online resources and facilitate access for students unable to participate in classes.
 
  • Assessment
Each subject includes an invigilated final examination with a threshold mark requirement to ensure the integrity and validity of student work submitted for assessment. However, each subject will also use a progressive assessment structure which will include non-examination elements to create more authentic assessment tasks and allow for regular feedback on students’ work. The assessment structure features early formative assessment tasks to engage students in the learning environment and allow for early feedback and development.
 
PROGRAM OUTCOME:
 
On completing the program, the students get equipped with the core fundamentals and knowledge of business administration. This not only serves as a stand-alone qualification but can also be used as a bridge to second year Degree programs at SP Jain or other institutions.

WELCOME TO THE SP JAIN COMMUNITY!

We live in exciting times where innovation and technology have made the world more integrated. One of the most significant changes in higher education is the development of online learning and digital resources. Your online Diploma responds to these changes. It is one step in the onward march for higher education.

The increasing globalisation of our economies has created a high demand for talented global leaders with the knowledge, flexibility, and skills to succeed in the real world. Organisations and entrepreneurs across the world need to recruit high performing managers who work efficiently in multi-cultural environments, whilst harnessing their global awareness and presence to promote creativity, innovation, and learning.

With this in mind, SP Jain aims to build an educational experience that is dynamic, cutting-edge, and relevant. We strive to create a learning environment that is both competitive and nurturing. We encourage you to question, be curious, and freely express your viewpoints.

We believe that learning is a personal responsibility. Thus, your ability to deliver on the high expectations of your future success will depend on your achievements and performance amidst a stimulating environment – you will be stretched and challenged by both the talented and experienced faculty and a vibrant peer group. SP Jain promises a rigorous education that will empower you to go out into the world to enjoy both professional success and personal fulfillment.

We believe that over time, education and hard work lead to maturity and the ability to accept personal responsibility. Good moral character; high ethical values; mutual respect for your peers and colleagues; and sensitivity to social issues are values we emphasise at S P Jain. We focus on holistic growth that balances learning with the moulding of personality, character, and attitudes. Above all, learning should be an enjoyable experience. It is our expectation that during your period with us you will form strong friendships and make important contacts that will endure through the whole of your professional life.

This is a truly fantastic opportunity that you will share with an amazing group of fellow global pioneers. We urge you to embrace this and be open to new ideas and experiences.
