SELECTING AN APPLICATION ROUND

  • 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.

A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

ADMISSIONS PROCESS

STEP 1

ELIGIBILITY

BACHELOR’S DEGREE

As the Master of Global Business (MGB) 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 0-3 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 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 do not meet the entry requirements. Can I still apply?

SP Jain Global selects students with a high academic performance. However, you may still apply and we will consider your overall profile including previous academic records, relevant work experience, extra-curricular activities and more.

 

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

MGB is a full-time program which does not permit you to work and study at the same time.

 

I haven't received my final graduation results. Can I still apply to the program?

Yes, you can apply to the program prior to receiving your final results. You can also appear for the SP Jain Aptitude Test (SPJAT) and go through the evaluation process. However, until you receive your graduation results, you can only be offered a conditional offer of acceptance to the MGB program.

 

I want to apply for two specialisations. Do I need to submit two applications?

No, you should not submit two applications. You can apply for two specialisations in a single application for MGB. Submitting more than one application is strictly not allowed and will lead to a candidate's admission being disqualified.

 

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.

 

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.
