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.

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 December 5, 2019 (for the January 2020 intake) and April 10, 2020 (for the May 2020 intake). Only test scores obtained in the last 2 years will be considered valid.

  • GRE (tested on or after December 1, 2016)
  • CAT (results declared in January 2018 or January 2019)

If you do not have a valid GMAT/GRE or CAT score, you may appear for the SPJAT. The registration fees payable would be INR 1,600 (inclusive of GST).

REGISTER FOR SPJAT

STEP 3

APPLICATION SCREENING

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. The evaluation fee is USD 50.

PROFILE-BASED SHORTLISTING

A key objective of our GMBA program is to construct the classroom with students from diverse backgrounds, industries, cultures, experiences and nationalities who can come together and collectively contribute to the learning process. We do consider candidates who have exceptional academic records/overall profiles but may have aptitude test scores below our cut-offs.

STEP 4

INTERVIEWS

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 conducted online (via Skype) or in person at our Mumbai campus.

STEP 5

ADMISSION

There are three possible outcomes for your application: offer, waitlist, reject. You will be informed of the Admission Committee’s decision within 5 days.

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 May 2020 intake, you need to have your passport in hand by April 2, 2020 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.
