SP Jain introduces world’s first Borderless MBA programme

Lectures by speakers from across the world, peer interactions open up classrooms to beyond four walls

Amid the uncertainty and challenges surrounding Covid-19, SP Jain School of Global Management (SP Jain) has announced several flexible learning options for its top-ranked Global MBA programme. Students now have the option to:

1. Start the programme online (Term 1) and continue on campus in Sydney and Singapore/ Mumbai (Terms 2 and 3). SP Jain calls this option its new ‘Borderless Global MBA’.

2. Study in Dubai (Term 1), Sydney (Term 2) and Mumbai (Term 3). This option is ideal for students looking to pursue employment opportunities in India

Besides these, the School’s original tri-city model will still be offered to those who wish to study in Dubai, Sydney and Singapore, and explore international employment opportunities.

What makes the Global MBA ‘Borderless’?

Joint classes with students from top European universities; guest speakers drawn from the world’s leading companies; virtual, out-of-classroom activities and social clubs; and opportunities to collaborate, network and have fun with like-minded peers from around the world are some of the features that make SP Jain’s new Global MBA rich and borderless, said the B-school’s President, Nitish Jain. “Learning shouldn’t be restricted to the four walls of a classroom and that, in a sense, is the idea behind the new Borderless Global MBA.”

“Online is the future of education. But the online technology that most universities use has a fundamental flaw because it was designed for office meetings and not really for classrooms. At SP Jain, we use a high-end technology tailormade for classrooms called ELO. No other university in all of Asia has anything similar. Also, we have adopted a new pedagogy by which students learn by doing; not just listening. We call this a ‘lab-style approach to learning’, and this is truly a game-changer as far as online education is concerned,” said Jain.

Flexible learning options

SP Jain also announced flexible learning options for its 16-month Master of Global Business programme, including the option to complete the entire programme in Mumbai. This is for students who prefer not to travel overseas, and is offered at a cost reduced by as much as 35 per cent.

SP Jain is an Australian business school with campuses in Mumbai, Dubai, Singapore and Sydney. The School offers a plethora of undergraduate, postgraduate, professional and doctoral programmes with the motive of crafting leaders for the 21st century workplace.
