A word from the Academic Director "Being SMIB is not only a label that you get when joining the academic programme. It is a real mindset, attitude and way of living that will stick to you all along the years. I can assert this, not only as the appointed Academic Director of the programme, but also as a former SMIB myself. This would be the summary of this SMIB-spirit: business-oriented, open-minded, bold and authentic. Being open-minded is not an advertising catch phrase for the SMIB programme. We really live diversity in our daily life: when on campus, through the various nationalities represented in the programme; when on business trips; when at work, through the many chosen expatriation paths that SMIBs are in… So how do we do it? Simply because our focus is on excellence, in whatever we do. And to be excellent, one needs emotional, cultural, theoretical and practical intelligence. So if you are not fully convinced, read on!"

Best Masters in Global Business in Singapore 2017. Adapt to different business environments, cultures & market conditions. Immerse in new cultures, step out of your comfort zone, develop cross-cultural understanding, gain real-world experience and engage some of the world’s top companies with our Master of Global Business (MGB) program. Designed exclusively for graduates with little or no work experience, the program trains you to appreciate and adapt to different business environments, cultures and market conditions, preparing you for a lifetime of decision-making and leadership. CURRICULUM We don’t believe in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. That’s why, as a postgraduate student at SP Jain, you will be engaged and motivated using a wide variety of teaching tools like simulations, online lessons, decision-making laboratories, global immersion exercises, guest lectures, industry sessions, research projects, student boardrooms and interactive discussions. A vibrant new feature of the postgraduate curriculum is the introduction of a Blended Model of Learning. Conventional MBA programs are made of a combination of knowledge-centric courses and their application in the real world. SP Jain’s recently revamped postgraduate curriculum, on the other hand, uses advanced online tools (like webinars, multimedia lessons, problem solving sessions) to deliver foundational and knowledge-based courses to students. It is believed that the discipline of online learning enhances learning agility (the ability to self-learn) and better retention of business fundamentals since students learn at a pace that suits them. On campus, the focus is on more advanced application-based topics that teach students to: Ask the right questions to frame issues Use the right tools to analyse data Synthesise information to create value Innovate using Design Thinking Use digital technology to develop high quality solutions, and Add value to future employers PROGRAM ARCHITECTURE To fulfil the requirements of the MGB program, students must complete 41 credits. The program includes 12 months of academic study at each of our 3 campuses + a mandatory 4-month internship. CORE COURSES In the initial term of the program, students build on their experience and gain a solid foundation in business through core courses in general topics of management like Economics, Finance, Statistics and Marketing. These courses are common and are required for all students, irrespective of their areas of specialisation. SPECIALISATIONS Industry experts believe that management takes place on two levels: cross-functional and vertical, and we reflect this by offering students a range of specialisations that equip them with the knowledge and specific tools that their future careers will demand. The following specialisations will be offered to students in the Intake of January 2017: e-Business (September Intake Only) Contemporary Marketing Management Global Finance Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management [-]
