The SP Jain Centre of Management (SPJCM) is set to become the first Indian business management school to start classes in Singapore when it opens its doors next month.

It will pip the prestigious government-funded IIM, Bangalore, which has announced the opening of a Singapore campus but has seen the project plagued by internal delays. The SPJCM opened talks with the Singapore authorities only six months ago.

Its first batch of 35 students will start classes on April 10 in a heritage building on Singapore’s Hyderabad Road. Nitish Jain, president of SPJCM, said his school was the first Indian institute to be granted university status.

Students who enroll for the intensive one-year global MBA programme will spend half the year on the Singapore campus and half the year in Dubai, at a fee of $60,000. The Singapore campus will be SPJCM's third, after Dubai and Mumbai.
