Anyone heard of this business school? It is called S P Jain School of Global Management. The MBA course seem quite good, accredited by ABEST21 and ranked in FT. Has anyone taken their MBA there? How is it like?
here's a class (singapore campus) photo taken from a student's blog:

After reading the blog, It seems like a great school with a Global perspective in top schools from America, Middle East and Australia. There is also a balance of concentration and foundation modules and well ranked by recruiters. Top ranking in India and faculty has industrial experience. One of my top choice for me choosing MBA.

anybody or their peers had experience with University of Birmingham MBA program offered by SIM? I'm thinking of applying for it sometime next year.

What are the general student population like? and how's robust and challenging is the program? I'm in my mid 20s with approximately 5 years of experience, with 1.5yrs in a supervisory role at my previous job.

Thanks in advance

Hey guys, if you're looking to get an MBA, I'd recommend that you read up more on it first, it's quite a significant investment of time and money.

Please let me share with you some resources that I use, I hope that it will be helpful for you:

Financial Time's Business School Rankings
The Economist MBA Rankings
Top MBA in Singapore
Useful Guide to Read before Applying for MBA

Hi Les Phatom,

u should go for the information session to get a feel on what you are getting yourself into. I juz started my MBA in April, to be perfectly honest, it is a struggle to balance work & personal & studies commitments. I gt a few colleagues inside Birmingham MBA. If memory serves me right,it's conducted in 10 day intensive blocks and quite xiong also. Please chk with the SIM folks for details. I may be wrong. Gd luck.

PUI lor. c aredi also tulan,u can obviously c the CO juz put his name there n send out. Not sincere at all.

Hi shadow82,

thanks for your response. Which MBA program are you enrolled in? Students in private institutions don't enjoy the same privileges as people who are studying in local universities - for example, you won't be eligible for a deferment if you're taking a course in SIM, whereas students in NUS, NTU, SMU, SUTD, qualify for deferment during the full length of their studies.

This applies to undergraduate studies, not sure if its the same for post graduate education.

For Bradford MBA at RDI, you needs to study in Hong Kong & meet the attendance requirement before they allow you to go for the exams.

Unless your friend are living in Hong Kong, why not study in MDIS since both are D/L MBA from Bradford?

I am enrolled in Strathclyde MBA. Perhaps due to the fact that is part time studies+post grad studies,it doesn't fall under the deferment cat ba.

Ya, last time when I was in NTU, they auto-include me inside the Institute of Higher Learning (IHL) program. But then they always call up during holidays during sch holidays so not an issue.However, my reservist call up date clashes with my intensive workshop date so got issue ba. Tats y wanna defer lor. But I am too tired to do any follow up actions for deferment nw. Busy rushing assignment nw. damn xiong. haha. tink I am too old for this ****. haha.
