We don’t believe in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ learning approach. That’s why, as a GFMB program student at SP Jain, you will be engaged and motivated using a wide variety of teaching tools like our multi-city learning model that allows students to experience the business culture in not one but three global cities or our unique program structure that provides you with hands-on experience.
Our classes often witness a powerful fusion of technology and business education, resulting in an impactful and real-world learning experience. We welcome you to explore how the SP Jain GFMB program can empower you and your family business:
You have the chance to study in the world’s top business hubs, providing you with unique exposure to multinational business environments and cultures. Whether you choose to study using the Tri-city Learning Format (face-to-face classes in Mumbai/Delhi, Dubai and Singapore) or the Blended Learning Format (Online lectures + face-to-face classes at one of SP Jain’s global campuses), you get multiple opportunities to study international business practices, network with business owners and community leaders, and use global strategies to reimagine your business.Explore Program Structure
Learn and be mentored by faculty who have a collective experience of 250+ man-years helping family businesses succeed. Our faculty have an immaculate way of connecting with students on their personal and business issues, giving them the comfort of asking questions without hesitation.
A truly unique element of the program is the mentoring by family members. Families comprise potential mentors – parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, cousins or siblings – ever present to guide you as you transform into a global business leader. In a family business, decisions are taken within a specific context and reasoning. The mentor is expected to discuss the rationale and decision-making process with the student. At the same time, the student is expected to share their learning with the mentor and get their inputs on the applicability of the same in the family business.
The world around us has evolved due to brilliant contributions from people who are curious and enterprising, challenging the current limits, and creating new solutions. The Foreign Education Tours (FET) at SP Jain are designed specially to learn from these innovative people and organisations around the world. During the 10-day educational tours, our GFMB program students not only interact with leading stalwarts from top global organisations, but they also experience different cities and countries while imbibing their local history, politics, geography, culture, and behaviour, and understanding how these help shape businesses. The FETs also play a key role in helping students get out of their comfort zones, expand their horizons, and understand how they can give their own businesses a truly global edge.SEE EXAMPLES OF INDUSTRY EXPOSURE VISITS

Technology is at the heart of the SP Jain experience – what we teach, how we teach and who teaches is largely technology-driven. Even within the GFMB program, we have integrated many new and emerging technologies, giving students a sense of the workplace of the future. Through interactions with SP Jain’s faculty, and thought leaders and innovators, students have the opportunity to explore how technologies such as Big Data, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things are enabling new ideas and business decisions.
