According to official sources on December 2, Mumbai based SP Jain Global's flagship Global MBA programme has been ranked among the Top 20 in the Forbes list of the world’s best 1-year International MBAs for the fifth consecutive year. The Forbes MBA ranking, along with Financial Times and The Economist, are among the most prestigious MBA rankings in the world, and SP Jain Global is the only school of Indian-origin (and the youngest) to find a coveted place in all three. SP Jain Global invites its alumni to celebrate its success story as the latest ranking places the institution alongside top global institutions such as IMD, INSEAD, IE, Cambridge, Oxford, Warwick and SDA Bocconi.

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. SP Jain Global MBA Class of 2012 reported close to a six-fold increase in salaries – from a pre-MBA salary of USD 9,000 to USD 50,000 (in 2016). SP Jain Global has also been ranked #1 in salary growth for all 5 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,” says Nitish Jain, president of SP Jain Global.

“Our ranking among the world’s best business schools by reputed international publications is a direct reflection of how well our graduates have been able to perform. To be the only school of Indian-origin in the ranking is thrilling,” he added. Graduates of the 13-year-old Global MBA programme are working in organisations like the Boston Consulting Group, P&G, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Nike, Unilever, Apple, World Economic Forum and Barclays, among other leading global corporations.

S P Jain Global is an Australian business school of Indian origin with campuses in Dubai, Singapore, Sydney and Mumbai. To learn more, visit
