Why SP Jain's Business Economics Degree?
Understanding the global business environment is key to business success, and at SP Jain, students learn this by living and studying in a minimum of three international cities.
So in addition to learning the various tools of business (like most university graduates), our students understand the global nature of business in the most compelling way – through actual exposure to diverse cultures, political beliefs, traditions and technological innovations.
In addition to living and studying in some of the world’s top economic centres, our students participate in special global learning classes where business frameworks are studied and tested.
They interact with local companies and conduct real-time application-based projects that help them really understand the interconnected nature of business, the influence and impact of culture on consumer preferences and business decisions, global collaboration and best practices, and the risks of stepping out of one’s home country.
In addition to the global knowledge gained, students learn to be adaptable, multicultural and globally relevant to companies of the 21st century.
Program Structure of Economics Bachelor Degree
The academic track of the BEC program is made of a blend of core courses, electives, industry projects, internships and certificate programs. As a freshman at S P Jain, you will jump right into core courses that provide the foundation for more detailed and specialised learning in the second half of the program.
A unique feature of the program is requirement to undertake an Action Learning Project along with regular subjects. Student teams work with local companies to submit consultant level reports and analysis. This project is very important as it offers you the opportunity to add significant value to a company, gain first-hand exposure to businesses and build important industry contacts.
