Welcome to the Jindal Global Business School!

 The Indian business environment is thriving due to a growing economy. The government’s reforms are reviewing and rationalizing regulation and made it easier to do business. New schemes such as Make in India, Start up India, Digital India and so on are focusing on incentivizing manufacturing, spreading computing technology and encouraging entrepreneurship. Although the global economy presents a mixed picture, innovative and dynamic organizations are taking advantage of the opportunities both domestically and internationally.
Business education worldwide is going through a transformation as opportunities become global, and companies source talent from across several countries. As business schools compete to provide their students with relevant education and skills, western universities are finding themselves at a disadvantage due to soaring costs. We, at JGBS, are happy to provide you with affordable education and infrastructural facilities of global standards in order to be globally successful. We aim to transform our students in our various programmes in order to launch them into successful careers.
Our PhD programme provides a rigorous training in research and in the literature of the chosen area of specialization. Students undertake both a research and teaching assistantship before they graduate. Our two-year MBA degree participants have an industry focus that keeps them seeking practical applications for their learning. Our five-year Integrated BBA-MBA programme allows for multiple specializations and offers a wide range of electives. Our three-year BBA programme allows you to focus on a sector, such as hospitality, banking and Insurance, or entrepreneurship and family business.
Global collaborations are an important part of who we are at JGBS. We have agreements with renowned institutions like the University of Texas at Dallas, Carleton University, Suffolk University, University of New Brunswick, European Business School, Goethe University, Queen's University, Bond University, and Queen Mary University of London. Several of our students spend time undertaking study abroad through immersion trips, semester exchange, or transfer to earn a second degree from our partner. Here, you can add to your global credentials by learning a foreign language on campus.
You will take classes here with excellent faculty engaged in impactful research and with significant industry experience. Almost every week, you will find a conference, a seminar, or a visiting speaker on campus, addressing a wide range of current issues. These provide an intellectually vibrant environment to broaden your understanding of world events and your network of friends and associates.
Our faculty are engaged in research both independently and through our research centers and welcome the participation of students in this activity.
We take pride in our multidisciplinary approach to education and you will be in an exciting environment interacting with students and scholars in the law school, the school of government and public policy, the school of international affairs and the school of liberal arts and humanities. Moreover, life here is not merely about academics, and there are several activities in co- curricular areas such as sports and cultural events to relax and build a well-rounded personality.


I look forward to seeing you on campus! 

Dr. Rajesh Chakrabarti​
