Why SP Jain's BEC?
Understanding the global business environment is key to business success, and at SP Jain, students learn this by living and studying in Mumbai and Dubai.
So in addition to learning the various tools of business (like most university graduates), our students understand the global nature of business in the most compelling way – through actual exposure to diverse cultures, political beliefs, traditions and technological innovations.
