About The Programme
The Global B.Com. is the first programme being launched under the India-Australia Global Education Initiative. This programme will offer innovative models of global education, training, and research for students in India. It aims to provide opportunities for Indian students to have an international campus experience.
The Global B.Com. offered in collaboration between JGU and Deakin University promises an education experience that blends the best of both institutions through an industry-relevant education portfolio, world-class faculty, and a dynamic learning environment on the campuses of JGU in India and Deakin University in Australia. The unique portfolio of two undergraduate degrees from both institutions and a master's degree from Deakin will ensure that graduates have an incredible opportunity to learn and grow in two international university systems.
What Makes It Different at JGU
The Global B.Com. programme, offered by the Jindal School of Banking & Finance (JSBF) in collaboration with Deakin University, provides a unique educational pathway to students seeking to become future leaders with international skills and a deeper intercultural understanding of the world.
The programme employs a 2+1+1.5 structure, where students spend the first two years studying foundational and intermediate level courses at JSBF. Upon successful completion, students transfer to Deakin University for one year to complete the requirements for obtaining the Global B.Com. from O.P.
