The online application process requires the candidates to complete both the GMP and the partner school forms (to be filled only for Brandeis International Business School, Nyenrode Business Universiteit, Robert H Smith School of Business and Stevens School of Business).
In certain cases, the application forms are time-consuming as it can include psychometric questions, video interviews, letter of recommendations, and so on. The candidates are not required to pay any additional fees for submitting the application forms to the partner school’s portal, if they are applying through SPIMR’s GMP programme. After both the schools go through the applications, the candidate is invited for interviews, if found eligible.
At this level the initial scrutiny takes place. Interviews are always held at SPJIMR Mumbai. During the interviews, representatives from all the partner schools are present. Interviews are conducted by SPJIMR and the partner schools, simultaneously. The schools jointly decide on the selection of candidates for the programme. When an offer is made the candidate will have complete clarity on the track he or she has been accepted for, after completion of GMP. Accordingly, every candidate is connected to an alumnus or current batch student of the school where he or she will be eventually joining, after transfer to credits.
Admission to the Global Management Programme (GMP) programme at S. P. Jain Institute of Management & Research (SPJIMR) is strictly based on merit. We do not have any management quota. The assessment of an applicant is on the basis of his/her profile, meeting the qualifying scores in either GRE/GMAT/CAT/XAT and the interview process.
SPJIMR communicates directly with all the shortlisted candidates. Under no circumstances will SPJIMR appoint an intermediary (whether an individual or organisation) to approach any candidate with claims of confirmed admission, for a fee or otherwise. In case you or your parents receive offers from intermediaries, we recommend that you do not get involved in such transactions.
