SP Jain's Singapore foray

After IIMB, SP Jain has unveiled its plans to start a campus in Singapore. A press release says that they will offer a course whereby students can spend 50% of their time in the Dubai campus and the remaining 50% of their time in the Singapore campus. I don’t really think there is a market need for such a course, except from a tourism angle. IIMB and SP Jain can really be termed as successful in their overseas forays only if they can offer a truly diverse class composition. If these centres are going to be mere extensions of Indian campuses with similar student profiles (maybe slightly richer ones), IIMB and SP Jain would be failing in their duties.

  • Crap. It's for the rich people who can't bear to get out of their air-conditioned capsules, ever. They just want to go from the cradle to their graves in clean, organised comfort. It's all about the money, honey. So? (Sorry, poor fellow that we are, we had to. Great move, I say.)

  • I guess you have to be one to comment some.

    I am a student in the "Dubai Campus"; surprisingly a lot of 'RICH' brats do not land up here. However we have a diverse crowd and there is great peer learning.
