Re: Calling all Applicants: S P Jain Institute PGPM (Jan 2017 Intake) [#permalink]
Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to apply for the SP Jain Institute, but I have one confusion regarding the dates. It shows that the application deadline is July 31, 2016 and the last date for submitting the scores are Aug 15. How does that work? Moreover the Interviews are conducted almost every 2 weeks upto July. So how does that work. Will I get a provisional admission subject to a minimum GMAT score or otherwise. Please update.

Regards

Hi helixsh,

The time gap for the GMAT scores are just in case you take your GMAT on the last date of the application (not very advisable though). It can take a maximumof 2 weeks for you to get your GMAT scores.

SPJIMR has interviewed people in the past who had not taken their GMAT up to the interview date- they were not informed of the status of their admission without GMAT scores. The shortlisting for the interview is done on the basis of profile. I would suggest that you speak with the PGPM program office for more clarity. The wonderful lady at the other end of the phone will update you on the policy for this year.

Re: Calling all Applicants: S P Jain Institute PGPM (Jan 2017 Intake) [#permalink]
Hello all b school experts, especially who is in close association with pgpm programme of sp jain
I need to talk about the college its alumni , undoubtedly the school is on of the top notch in India but I am afraid
That this is due to its flagship 2 year programme , very few literature have been said about the 1 year programme

Knowing the fact that one would do MBA only once and specially for applicant with 5 years of experience it is a big gamble, as 1 year programme in India isnot that popular except isb.

Due date to apply for January 2017 is July 31.
Though I am interested, I have my doubts, however I
Will apply to keep my avenues open.

Some year MBA is primarily for substantial change in role/function/geography and to gain traction in career, does this school tick all these crucial boxes.

For person from India it is a big decision as everything rely on this life changing decision.
Although MBA is not about monetary gains but still it remains one of the few crucial deciding factors.

Experts, adcom, alumni, current students please speak up .

Knowledge is everything share if you care, about the school pedagogy, learning methods, faculty, students profile, placement profiles, geography, compensation offered, international immersion and international roles, share as much you can.

Geography change- SP Jain does not place internationally through its 1 year (PGPM) program. This is due to to issues mainly focused around Visa.

Role/ function change- This happens in the form of career acceleration or role change within domain or domain change (eg. Marketing in Automobiles to Marketing in E-commerce etc. Or Consulting to Industry or vice versa. Or Marketing in one domain to marketing in another domain). So role and function change happens frequently enough.

Career acceleration/ career traction - Integral part of program.

Knowledge building - The program is very strong in this area. The faculty are common across all programs (and for some courses professors are from other reputed institutes - Including IIMs and foreign universities). The program is not very good at marketing itself and hence, these strong differentiators are not know about the program.

Outgoing compensation depends upon a lot of factors, including incoming salaries. However, outgoing salaries can be checked in detail on the program section of SPJIMRs website: https://www.spjimr.org/pgpm/placements. Please note that this is for the previous batch and salaries can vary a lot depending upon the experience level (which is higher for current batch). Also, note that the average salary is a figure is an average, ie, nobody gets this amount, people will always get higher and lower salaries, but never exact.

International immersion is at some of the leading business schools (depends upon specialisation - in fact even at this moment the marketing cohort is at Cornell University - Johnson for its immersion program).

Another big plus is the small batch size. The immense benefit of this the close interaction of the batch among itself (in addition to the faculty and program administration knowing each student individually).

I hope that this addresses some of your concerns.

Re: Calling all Applicants: S P Jain Institute PGPM (Jan 2017 Intake) [#permalink]
Hi,
I took GMAT recently and got 680.
(Verbal-33,Quant-49,Analytical Writing-3 & Integrated Reasoning-3).
I have 5 years of experience in American Automobile Company.
3 years worked as New Model Launch Engineer
2 years worked as Process Engineer.
Is the above score good enough to apply for SP Jain PGPM?
Or do I need to give GMAT again for better score. :?

any advice or directions is greatly appreciated.

Thanks :-D
