Personalised learning, a global curriculum, an international tri-city immersion experience, a technology-driven classroom environment and the deployment of cutting-edge pedagogy are adopted by the SP Jain School of Global Management to maximise student learning.
With the placement of students becoming a yardstick to evaluate a university’s status, what are the achievements of university in this regard? How significant innovation is to your university?
Our BBA programme guarantees a 2 year student work visa in Australia and our students find placement with some of the most well-known companies in the world – Bloomberg, KPMG, Citibank to name a few. A majority of our students get placed within 3 months of graduating. In terms of regions, about 35% get placed in Australia, followed by India (25%), Dubai (15%) and Singapore (10%).
Almost every other university enjoying the fruits of collaborations, what initiatives have been taken by the SP Jain Global University on this front?
We have exchange programs with many other international schools and send our students there on a regular basis. In exchange we also accept students at our school from these institutions. The incoming students contribute to diversity in our classrooms and the outgoing students get exposure to different teaching environments across the world. Some of the international school we collaborate with include ESADE (Spain), IESEG-Lille (France), Schulich (Canada) & Linnaeus (Sweden).
What steps have been taken by the university to ensure the finest faculty delivering in this fast developing world?
Some of the world’s best faculty are drawn by us from leading institutions in the world. We ensure that our faculty have rich corporate experience in addition to academic qualifications so that they can impart knowledge in a meaningful and practical way. Both our adjunct faculty and fulltime faculty consistently get high student feedback scores.
What measures have been undertaken for research-based learning by the university?
Our faculties consistently publish high-quality research papers in peer-reviewed journals and bring this knowledge to the classroom. In addition, there are a large number of projects undertaken by students which require not only secondary research (library, internet) but also primary research (survey, interviews).
