Forbes ranks SP Jain Global among world’s top 20 MBAs

Khaleej Times - - INDIA - IANS

new delhi — S.P. Jain Global School of Global Man­age­ment, which has cam­puses in Syd­ney, Sin­ga­pore and Dubai apart from Mum­bai, has been ranked among the top 20 in­sti­tutes in the ‘Best In­ter­na­tional MBAs One-year pro­grammes’ cat­e­gory of Forbes bi­en­nial rank­ings of busi­ness schools.

The busi­ness school was ranked 16th in the rank­ings pub­lished ear­lier this week. IMD in Switzer­land, Insead in France, and IE Busi­ness School in Spain were ranked first, sec­ond and third re­spec­tively.

This is the fifth time in a row that the in­sti­tute has found its way into the top 20 one-year MBA pro­gramme in­sti­tutes.

“Forbes’ bi­en­nial rank­ing of the world’s best in­ter­na­tional MBA pro­grammes 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 course,” a state­ment from S.P. Jain School of Global Man­age­ment said.

The in­sti­tute, it added, “re­ported close to a six-fold in­crease in salaries — from a pre-MBA salary of $9,000 to $50,000 (in 2016). The busi­ness school has also been ranked one 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,” busi­ness school Pres­i­dent Ni­tish Jain said in the state­ment. —
