S P Jain School of Global Management’s Executive MBA (EMBA) program in Dubai has been ranked among the Top 10 in Asia-Pacific and Top 100 globally, making it one of the world’s best EMBA programs in 2018, according to the Ivy Exec (USA) EMBA Rankings. In the Asia-Pacific, S P Jain is also ranked #2 for ‘work-life balance’ and #7 for ‘career advancement’ and ‘curriculum’.
The Ivy Exec EMBA Rankings are derived from an EMBA perception survey which is conducted annually by Ivy Exec within their community of 1 million+, comprising Directors/VPs, C-level executives and business leaders, who value education as the shortest path to career advancement.
Mr. Nitish Jain, President of S P Jain School of Global Management, shared, “Naturally, we are excited to be ranked among Asia-Pacific’s Top 10 EMBA programs. We are an Australian business school and we are ranked #1 in Australia, even ahead of the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne! This is a clear indication of the success of our philosophy which is to offer students relevant, practical education.”
“Given the stiff competition we face and the changing needs of businesses, we are always on the lookout to reinvent, reimagine and innovate. And, when it comes to innovation, technology keeps us on our toes. We have recently launched a powerful new way to learn online that is delivered entirely using some of today’s most cutting-edge emerging technologies. We call this Engaged Learning Online (ELO). This, I believe, will radically transform the way students learn, especially our part-time EMBA students,” added Mr. Jain.
Professor Christopher Abraham, CEO and Head of Dubai Campus - S P Jain, said, “Being in a top class city like Dubai in an extremely progressive country like the UAE, the recent top 100 EMBA ranking for our Executive MBA program in Dubai is a vindication of the success of this robust, application-oriented program, which has seen thousands of successful graduates pass through and excel in their professional careers and entrepreneurial pursuits over the years in the region.”

Our rankings within the 2018 Ivy Exec Rankings (87th globally and 8th in the Asia-Pacific) is hard tangible evidence about what we do as well as how we do it is world-class.”
