SP Jain offers a cutting-edge curriculum designed by experts and benchmarked against the world's best universities. Rigorous coursework ensures that graduates are thoroughly prepared with the knowledge and skills they need to excel as leaders in a global workplace.
Year 1: Mumbai campus
The first year of the course builds a strong foundation in business and economics, and provides a broad perspective of the environment in which business is conducted.
Years 2 and 3: Sydney campus
As students progress within the program, the focus shifts to specialist topics like financial accounting, microeconomics, behavioural finance, financial management and econometrics. An intensive capstone project culminates academic learning in the final year.
A unique feature of the BEC program is the requirement to undertake a Regional Immersion Project and a Capstone Project along with other subjects.
Students undertake a self-directed project related to their area of interest. The project helps students in creating and maintaining a professional portfolio, and encourages them to work in teams, communicate with a designated mentor, and develop a good foundational understanding of how to conduct a research project. During the project, students will identify suitable frameworks, business models, and the research approaches to address business challenges within the contemporary global/regional dynamic environment.
Learning culminates with a capstone project which enables students to apply the knowledge and skills gained in class in a real-world setting. During the project, students partner with a company to complete a project and deliver a detailed written report along with a presentation. The project gives students an opportunity to engage in self-directed learning, illustrating their skills in reading, discussion, problem identification, evaluation and research, and professional writing.
In the final year of BEC (Semesters 5 and 6), students select six electives. Offerings include:
To fulfil the requirements of the BEC degree, students must complete a total of 84 credits.
SP Jain uses a system of continuous student evaluation, rather than a single end-of-semester final examination. The assessment types for the BEC program include Individual and Group Assignments, Exams (Mid Term Examinations and End Term Examination), Quizzes, Class Participation, Simulations and Group Projects.
