CAREER ACCELERATION AND ADAPTION
To get to the next stage – whether it is to progress in your career, become an entrepreneur or make a career transition – you will need the management expertise and professional connections that a world-class MBA will help you foster. The SP Jain Executive MBA (EMBA) is an 18-month part-time program designed to help you expand your managerial and leadership skill set, develop the tools to identify and seize challenging opportunities, build a decision-making track record and position yourself as a change-maker.
The program can be pursued in any one of the two delivery formats:
You can opt for the delivery mode that is convenient to you and suits your professional schedules. The modular, well-balanced structure of the program enables you to develop actionable insights and make an immediate impact at work.
After much extensive research which included gathering data from corporates and alumni, we believe we have developed a truly world-class program which is at the leading edge of applied practice and theory. Some of the many new courses include Leadership and Cross-Cultural Management, and Corporate Governance and Ethics. New electives such as New Ventures, and Mergers and Acquisitions are being offered. Furthermore, a new specialisation is being offered in Entrepreneurship. In addition, ECAP (Executive Career Acceleration Program) has been integrated into the core curriculum, emphasising the strategic importance of all students enhancing their soft skills in order to become effective managers and leaders.
Just before I joined SP Jain’s EMBA (delivered online via ELO), I was very close to signing up for a full-time on-campus program. But that involved a lot of changes. I had to put my career on hold. So, I decided to explore an online program. This is one of the best decisions I have taken for my education. It’s given me the flexibility to continue working. I didn’t have to move houses or move to a different state.
When you’re in class, you’re in front of all your batch mates. You can see everybody right there. It doesn’t feel like you’re away. You can ask and answer questions on the fly. The favourite part so far has been the administrative setup. The team is doing a fabulous job. Any request we ask for is immediately dealt with. It’s great that SP Jain has this kind of an engaging online format.
Between juggling a career of being a project manager and the role of a mother, an online MBA helps me balance the two worlds. The ELO technology has been wonderful. We're sitting in the comfort of our house with our family and, at the same time, we're engaging with the class and the professors; so, there’s that one-to-one feeling. It's a virtual class environment where you don't feel lost. There's a lot of cold calling. It's two-way communication.
Attending classes on campus would have been difficult for me as I travel extensively around the world for my work. Today’s digital world helps you connect from anywhere and learn. That’s why I preferred SP Jain’s online program over a conventional classroom program. No matter where I am travelling to, I have that flexibility and connect with my class. I never felt that I’m missing the class; I’m already in class! My first ELO experience was at Singapore airport. I attended the first lecture of my course from Ecuador. When I was in the Pacific Islands for almost three weeks, I attended two complete modules.
Speaking about diversity, I’m getting the opportunity to be in the same class as someone who has 25 years of experience! We have students from marketing, sales and teaching; someone is an entrepreneur; one of our classmates is a chef – everyone is bringing in their own experiences and this helps us learn better.
The faculty selection for each of the subjects was par excellence. Being experts and highly renowned in their respective fields, each of them shared their valuable experiences and knowledge with all of us. Global Immersion Project and Applied Business Research, the ‘crown jewels’ of the program, gave me the opportunity to test my learning and understanding from the program.
The SP Jain EMBA (on-campus) has empowered me to experiment with my leadership skills using Strategy, Quality Management and Personal Effectiveness tips and tricks. The Global Immersion Project and sessions on Corporate Finance, Research Methodology, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution Management, among others, have helped me expand my knowledge base and make winning decisions at work after considering a multitude of cross-functional factors.
The SP Jain EMBA (on-campus) offers you the flexibility to attend classes during weekends and focus on your work and family on weekdays. The program provides a lifetime of learning. Not only has the quality of my work improved immensely, the program has also helped me step out of my comfort zone, making me a confident and effective speaker.
