Welcome to the Jindal Global Business School (JGBS) at the O P Jindal Global University (JGU).
As part of a world ranked university, we are deeply committed to not only deliver contemporary and industry-relevant management education but also to provide an ecosystem to our students helping them build and enhance their knowledge-base, skill-set, personalities and eventually transform them into future-ready managers, leaders and entrepreneurs who can make a positive and substantial impact in the world. Our Vision is to be a “globally acclaimed business school” and we have taken a number of steps including the membership of the AASCB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), in order to not only benchmark our processes to the world’s best business schools but also to attract the best students, faculty and staff members.
JGBS is uniquely positioned in multiple ways to provide an unparalleled experience to our students via its various undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate degree programmes.
First, interdisciplinarity is at the very core of our thought process not only at the business school but also at the university. JGBS students have access to courses offered by the nine other schools of JGU. For instance, in the year 2020-21, students of JGBS had access to around 300 elective courses outside of JGBS, offered by other schools and institutes within the JGU ecosystem. This was, of course, in addition to the massive variety of management elective courses offered by the different areas within JGBS.
Second, our global network of partnerships, with leading universities and business schools around the world, ensures that JGBS students have access to exciting short- and long-term international mobility options spread across five continents. JGBS currently has around 80 international partnerships (and growing) which offer tremendous exposure for our students while helping them become more adaptable and globally aware, thereby dramatically enhancing their employability.
Third, our faculty student ratio is among the best across business schools in India. JGBS has more than 90 full time faculty members and this list is rapidly growing. Additionally, our faculty members have doctorates from some of the leading universities and business schools in India and abroad. I invite you to go through our faculty page to get a better understanding of our outstanding full-time faculty members who are instrumental in delivering cutting edge management education to the JGBS students.
Finally, JGBS is a research-intensive business school and its faculty members regularly publish their research in top ranked peer-reviewed management journals. Our Jindal Journal of Business Research (JJBR) is a peer reviewed management journal published by the SAGE publication. The school has a thriving entrepreneurship ecosystem and our incubation centre, the Startup JGU Innovation Lab, is the epicentre of this entrepreneurship activity.
If you are seeking a quality management degree programme which will adequately prepare you to not only compete but thrive in today’s dynamic business environment, I can assure you that JGBS should be your top choice.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
