S P Jain's MBA - Global (GMBA) is a uniquely crafted, 12-month program requiring students to study in all 3 campuses in Dubai, Singapore, and Sydney. They are thereby immersed in the business practices of each city, where they work with local companies and have workshops and site visits related to the political, cultural and business environment. This makes students more adaptable to today’s business challenges, more open-minded to living anywhere, and more adept at working with people from different cultures.

The MBA - Global (GMBA) program is designed to help students become strong decision makers through daily application-based work requiring them to decide how to respond to ambiguous situations and/or deal with incomplete information. As a result, they are able to have a valuable impact on their organizations from the moment they join.

Testimonial of former student

"SPJ has been a truly global experience and I am proud to have partaken in such an experimental and novel concept for management courses. If you look at top universities in USA, Europe, etc., almost all are at least considering the idea of a one-year program instead of two, as well as slowly realizing that the world is growing more and more connected and that living in other regions is a huge part of learning about the world. We have taken courses from faculty from many countries, continents, with different viewpoints and teaching styles."
