A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

ADMISSIONS PROCESS

STEP 1

ELIGIBILITY

BACHELOR’S DEGREE

As the GMBA is a postgraduate program, you must already be a university graduate to apply. Applicants who do not have their final year results can apply for the intake but SP Jain Global can only make a conditional offer.

WORK EXPERIENCE

The applicant must have 3+ years of full-time work experience.

CONSULTING MANAGEMENT ELIGIBILITY

Please note that admission to the Consulting Management specialisation is stringent and highly competitive. To qualify, applicants must meet at least one of the following three entry requirements:

  • 8 years (minimum) of full-time work experience in a single domain
  • 3 years (minimum) of full-time work experience as a Consultant in a Consultancy firm
  • GMAT score of 700+ or CAT/SP Jain Aptitude Test (SPJAT) score of 95 percentile and above

ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY

An English Language Proficiency Score (ELPS) is a mandatory requirement for a student to obtain an Australian visa. At the time of applying for the program, a student is not required to show an ELPS. However, on being offered admission and prior to the course commencement, students are required to submit their score.

Acceptable scores are as follows:

  • IELTS minimum score of 6.5 (students may opt to appear for the Academic or General IELTS test)
  • TOEFL iBT minimum score of 70
  • Pearson Test of English (PTE) minimum score of 60

English Language Test scores must be submitted on or before August 5, 2019 (for the September 2019 intake) and December 5, 2019 (for the January 2020 intake). Only test scores obtained in the last 2 years will be considered valid.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

 

I am currently working in Dubai/Singapore/Sydney/Mumbai. Can I work and pursue the GMBA program at the same time or will I need to quit my job?

GMBA is a full-time program and does not permit students to work and study at the same time. Should candidates wish to pursue a part-time MBA, they may apply for SP Jain Global’s Executive MBA in either Dubai, Singapore, Sydney or Mumbai.

 

I have applied for a passport but have not received it yet. Can I still apply?

Yes, you can still apply. However, for the September 2019 intake, you need to have your passport in hand by September 2, 2019 as we need it to process your student visas.

 

Why is the GMBA program’s duration only one year, not two?

Our GMBA program is designed for professionals who wish to take as little time off as possible. While some MBAs are two-year programs, ours takes fewer holidays and compresses classes into a shorter period of time. We cover the same material as two-year MBAs offered at other schools.

 

Does SP Jain Global hold information sessions?

Yes, SP Jain Global holds several engaging sessions for students where they are able to interact with the program personnel, ask questions and get all their queries resolved. For more details on events, see Information Sessions.
