Commenting on the growth in student enrolment, Dr. Gary Stockport, Dean – Executive MBA and Professor of Strategy at SP Jain, shared—”With the goal to craft global leaders, the EMBA Program has helped our students gain knowledge and capabilities through disruptive learning. With a fine blend of practical & theoretical knowledge, the EMBA Program provides an excellent opportunity for working professionals who want to become strong generalist managers and high-quality future leaders. Our growing and vibrant EMBA Alumni community is a testament to this.”
“The EMBA is providing me with a clear view of how to look at an organization as a whole and appreciate and prepare for the challenges I face as a leader in my organization. The Program is designed so that after each subject, one can apply the knowledge directly to our work environment, which I experienced right after completing my first course. The program has brought me in touch with a class full of fine professionals from various industry backgrounds who have significantly enriched my learning experience, especially during group assignments and networking outside of the class. Attending this EMBA program while working full-time has helped me organize my time and make adjustments during weekends by discussing with my family. This, in itself, was a great learning experience,” expressed Anil Chelamchela, a student of SP Jain’s EMBA program. Anil is a senior tech leader with over 22 years of experience in technology and works as a senior director of IT at a leading Fortune 100 company.
