GMP Admission Process

GMP intakes two cohorts every year, one in January and one in June. SPJIMR and the international partner school work together to shortlist, interview, and select the candidates. An offer is made to the candidates with detailed clarity on the programmes they will pursue after GMP. Additionally, GMP connects each candidate to an alumnus or current batch participant at the international partner schools to facilitate their journeys at the international schools.

Disclaimer: Admission to the Global Management Programme (GMP) at S. P. Jain Institute of Management & Research (SPJIMR) is strictly based on merit. SPJIMR does not have any quota, management or otherwise. Applications are assessed based on the applicant’s profile, the qualifying entrance scores and the interview process. SPJIMR communicates directly with all the shortlisted candidates. SPJIMR never appoints an intermediary (whether an individual or organisation) under any circumstance to approach any candidate with claims of confirmed admission, for a fee or otherwise. SPJIMR strongly recommends that you do not get involved in such transactions.
