"The MGB program is designed for graduates with little to no work experience. Some students to have received salaries of USD 32795 or higher is very gratifying. I am particularly pleased to note the presence of several first-time recruiters from the technology industry.
The SP Jain curriculum is designed to train students to leverage cutting-edge business management skills in the fast-evolving digital ecosystem. Students are not only prepared for management-specific careers, but also for positions that are technology and data-driven requiring deep analytical skills," shared Dr. Balakrishna Grandhi, Dean of SP Jain's MGB and Global MBA programs.
The MGB is a 16-month full-time master's program with a mandatory 4-month international internship component. It is offered in two flexible learning formats. Students may opt to spend four months each at SP Jain's campuses in Singapore, Sydney, and Dubai, or four months in Singapore and the remaining duration of the program in Dubai, where they will receive assistance with internships and job placements.
