The S P Jain Executive MBA (EMBA) is a part-time integrated program designed to meet the needs of working professionals who wish to pursue an MBA without interrupting their careers. The coursework is rigorous and demanding; the result is the transformation of promising managers into General Managers with a global perspective.
Why SP Jain's Executive MBA?
- THE PROGRAM TRAINS YOU TO THINK AND ACT LIKE A GENERAL MANAGER
Our EMBA students participate in a number of advanced multimedia simulations that teach them to make smart, winning decisions. These simulation exercises, undertaken in our state-of-the-art Simulation Centres, are unique in that they bring students face-to-face with real-time business challenges and allow them to practice and sharpen their real-world and decision-making skills in the most innovative way, and in a risk-free environment.
- THE PROGRAM ALLOWS YOU TO ADD IMMEDIATE VALUE TO YOUR ORGANISATION
Our EMBA curriculum includes a unique Problems at Work methodology (PAW), the objective of which is to allow students to bring actual work-related issues to class, discuss with peers and develop innovative solutions. Done under the guidance of experienced faculty and mentors, PAW has proven to help students add immense (and immediate) value at work resulting in recognition, rewards, and career progression.

Our EMBA program, tailored for busy working professionals like you, makes use of a flexible study format that minimises your time away from work and family, and at the same time, helps you develop the skills needed to speed up your momentum at work.

- THE PROGRAM FOSTERS A GLOBAL MINDSET IN STUDENTS

Our EMBA classroom is a melting pot of cultures, backgrounds, work experience and areas of professional expertise. The program provides you with a platform to connect with people from different industries and build contacts that can be leveraged personally and professionally, besides proving to be a learning resource to one another.
- YOU STUDY IN ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST BUSINESS SCHOOLS
In the last five years of our short but decorated twelve-year-old history, we have been ranked by three of the world’s top four business school rankings – Forbes, Financial Times and the Economist. In each of these rankings, we are the youngest school featured – an accomplishment we attribute to our unique and innovative model of business education.
The objective of our EMBA program is to groom ‘General Managers’ capable of assuming different roles and achieving several organizational objectives. From our research of industry trends, we have identified important skills and competencies that General Managers must possess, and these form the key pillars of our program.
THE DNA OF A GENERAL MANAGER MUST INCLUDE SKILLS LIKE:
- Personal effectiveness
- The ability to leverage technology
- Critical thinking & problem solving
- Creativity & innovation
THE DNA OF A GENERAL MANAGER MUST INCLUDE COMPETENCIES LIKE:
- Understanding the global business environment
- Financial intelligence for growing stakeholder value
- Customer value management & expanding markets
- Leading teams and organizations
- Cost leadership and operations excellence
- Integrative intelligence for sustainability
To fulfill the requirements of the EMBA program, you must complete 36 credits.
Subjects taught in the program are divided into three phases: Essentials of Management, Practice of Management and Cross-Functional Management.
- PHASE 1: Essentials of Management, usually conducted over 10 months, helps acquire core concepts of business and management.
- PHASE 2: Practice of Management, usually conducted over 6 months, will enable you to specialize in a particular functional area of management.
- PHASE 3: Cross-Functional Management, which typically takes 2 months, is the final segment in which every subject is taught using a series of complex business simulations.
In the initial term of the program, students build on their experience and gain a solid foundation in business through core courses in general topics of management like Economics, Finance, Statistics, and Marketing. These courses are common and are required for all students, irrespective of their areas of specialization.
Industry experts believe that management takes place on two levels: cross-functional and vertical, and we reflect this by offering students a range of specializations that equip them with the knowledge and specific tools that their future careers will demand.
The following specializations are offered to EMBA students:
- Operations or
- An option for general management
Choosing the right emphasis can influence one's career growth in the future. These electives have been designed keeping in mind requirements of each focus area. Rich in content and quality, these cutting-edge electives are ideal for executives desirous of gaining an edge in today's competitive economy.
As an EMBA student at S P Jain, you also have the flexibility of opting for a General MBA by choosing electives from all four majors.
Applied Business Research
A unique feature of the EMBA program is the Applied Business Research Project undertaken by students within the context of their own organizations.
The project is divided into two stages:
Design of a research proposal In this stage, students are required to conduct extensive secondary research. They are actively involved in literature review as well as collecting data from journals, white papers, news articles, and websites. Students are required to build a business case, define a business problem/opportunity and arrive at clear research objectives to meet the business challenge. Research proposals are evaluated and approved by a panel comprising faculty and industry mentors, before progressing to stage two.
Undertaking research & making corporate recommendations Students commence this stage by refining their research proposal and undertaking primary research. Each student carries out in-depth analysis using various research tools and techniques to arrive at strategic recommendations with managerial implications.
On completing their research, students present their findings to their organizations, resulting in greater recognition and success.
Average faculty-student ratio: 8.15
