The highest international offer for the program went up to USD 50,925, a 15 per cent rise from last year’s $44,395. The average international salary stood at $32,650, up from $23,505 in 2020. Over 50 per cent of students bagged full-time offers from leading companies in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. The school also reported international internships for 63 per cent of its students.

Top international recruiters this season include leading companies such as Amazon, KPMG, Bayer, Landmark Group, Aramex, Michelin, Lenovo, DSV, Network International, Movado Group, Westcon, Agility, Redington Gulf, Kantar, Sharaf DG, StoneX, TIER Mobility, iMile, and Global Shipping and Logistics.

Students who opted for domestic placements received offers from Unilever, Henkel, IBM, Aditya Birla Capital, Micron India, Thermo Fisher, Blackberrys, McKinsey and Co., TIAA, Cedar Consulting, Cognizant, Accenture, Johnson and Johnson, Steer Advisors, IBS Intelligence, First Cry and L&T Infotech. The school also reported recruitment by several start-ups and tech companies such as TruKKer, Indegene, Azentio, Fero.Ai and Westcon.

The technology sector took the top spot, with 26 per cent of students joining tech companies, fintech firms and last-mile delivery apps. Consulting (9 per cent), logistics (7 per cent), and retail and BFSI (6 per cent) were the other leading sectors. General management roles constituted 18 per cent of the offers, followed by consulting, marketing, operations and project management.

“The MGB programme is designed for graduates with little to no work experience. Some students to have received salaries of $32,770 or higher is very gratifying. I am particularly pleased to note the presence of several first-time recruiters from the technology industry. The SP Jain curriculum is designed to train students to leverage cutting edge business management skills in the fast-evolving digital ecosystem. Students are not only prepared for management specific careers, but also for positions that are technology and data-driven requiring deep analytical skills,” shared Dr Balakrishna Grandhi, dean of SP Jain’s MGB and Global MBA programmes.


The MGB is a 16-month full-time Master’s programME with a mandatory four-month international internship component. It is offered in two flexible learning formats. Students may opt to spend four months each at SP Jain’s campuses in Singapore, Sydney and Dubai, or four months in Singapore and the remaining duration of the program in Dubai, where they will receive assistance with internships and job placements.
