The latest ranking places SP Jain School of Global Management in the league of top institutions like IMD, INSEAD, IE, Cambridge, Oxford, Warwick and SDA Bocconi.
DUBAI - October 5, 2017: For the fifth year in a row now, SP Jain School of Global Management’s (SP Jain) flagship Global MBA program has been ranked in the TOP 20 in the Forbes list of the world’s best 1-year International Full-Time MBAs.
S P Jain Dubai Campus located in Academic City is the place where the business leaders of tomorrow are getting prepared to disrupt the business world. The focus of S P Jain is educating and fostering entrepreneurial and business skills adding a global experience value to their student’s education and preparing them for real-business world environment.
The Forbes MBA rankings, along with Financial Times and The Economist, are amongst the most prestigious MBA rankings in the world, and SP Jain Global is the youngest school to get all three.
Forbes’ biennial ranking of the world’s best international MBA programs is based solely on the return on investment achieved by graduates. This year, the Forbes ranking compared the earnings of the Class of 2012 in their first five years post-MBA. SP Jain’s Class of 2012 reported close to a six-fold increase in salaries - from a pre-MBA salary of USD 9,000 to USD 50,000 (in 2016). SP Jain has also ranked #1 in salary growth for all five years.
“Campus placements are often used to measure a School’s success. However, top rankings like Forbes, Financial Times and The Economist measure graduate outcomes over a period of time. This is a superior measure of success as they consider long-term student growth, and not just starting salaries,” shares Mr. Nitish Jain, President of SP Jain School of Global Management.
“Our ranking amongst the world’s best business schools by reputed international publications is a direct reflection of how well our graduates have been able to perform. To be the youngest school in the ranking is thrilling!”
Graduates of the 13-year-old Global MBA program are working at organisations like the Boston Consulting Group, P&G, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Nike, Unilever, Apple, World Economic Forum and Barclays, all leading global corporations.
A distinctive highlight of the Global MBA program is its multi-campus model, and the School credits much of their global success to this. Dr. Indu Niranjan, Dean of the program shares, “Our goal is to train our graduates for top companies around the world. Our students have the unique benefit of studying in three cities – Singapore, Sydney and Dubai. They understand how to operate in a global business environment – a skill much valued by recruiters. They undertake projects with top companies, interact with business leaders and thinkers, go on cultural tours and develop important global skills. These skills have led to better jobs, salaries and better graduate outcomes.”
