BACHELOR’S DEGREE: As this is a postgraduate program, you must already be a university graduate to apply. Candidates who do not have their final year results can apply for the intake but SP Jain can only make a conditional offer. 

WORK EXPERIENCE: The candidate must have 3+ years of full-time work experience.

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 minimum score of 60


English Language Test scores must be submitted on or before April 5, 2019 (for the May intake) and August 5, 2019 (for the September intake). Only test scores obtained in the last 2 years will be considered valid. This is also a mandatory requirement for a student to obtain an Australian visa.

  • Admissions are open to the May and September 2019 intakes.
  • The application fee for the Master of Global Business program is USD 70 and must be paid online using a credit/debit card.
  • We have 3 application rounds per intake. You may apply to any one of the three application rounds. However, you can apply only once per intake.

Deadlines for submitting the application are:

Round 1- January 15, 2019
Round 2- February 18, 2019
Round 3 - March 20, 2019

  • While competition for each of the rounds is equal, the earlier you gain admission, the more time you have to secure financing, housing and settle other logistical matters.
  • While applying, you must indicate your choice of specialisation and provide a valid aptitude test score.


Please note that a valid test score is a must at the time of application. We accept:

  • GMAT/GRE (tested on or after April 1, 2016)
  • CAT (results declared in January 2018 or January 2019)
  • SPJAT (tested on or after April 1, 2017)

If you do not have a valid GMAT/ GRE or CAT, you may appear for the SPJAT (SP Jain Aptitude Test).

The Admissions Committee will carefully review your application, aptitude test scores and the supporting documents you provide. If shortlisted, you will be invited for further evaluation and interviews.

You will be notified of your application status by:

Round 1- January 18, 2019
Round 2- February 21, 2019

This round comprises:

  • A Business Creativity Test (duration: 20 minutes)
  • An Essay and Case Study Discussion (duration: 60 minutes)
  • A Personal Interview (please note that you may need to appear for two or more interviews on the same day). The interviews may be completed online or in person at our Mumbai campus.

Round 1- January 27, 2019
Round 2- February 28, 2019
Round 3 - March 24, 2019
