Currently, the school has its campuses in Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore and Sydney.

The school was ranked among 'Top 10 1-year international MBA' in Forbes' biennial rankings of the world's top MBA programmes in September.

Speaking about the rankings, he said the school has won the international ratings based on its innovative teachings. The latest ranking is also the first for an Indian-owned business school.

"We have students from 30 different countries across all continents," Jain said, adding that the school conducts courses in phases by sending students to different campuses. He said the school is "reimaging business education as it should be" by merging online education, teacher-less classes and conventional class room teachings.

Jain stressed the importance of students' learning on their own, especially from the increasing range of online sources, and develop "learning agility." Global businesses are looking for MBAs with learning agility to work and think on the ground, he said.

The school began with its first campus in Dubai in 2004, followed by the Singapore campus in 2006, Sydney in 2012 and Mumbai this year. Among its many global rankings, the Financial Times has ranked the school as one of the top 100 business schools in the world in 2011 and 2012.

Forbes also ranked it as the top 20 business schools globally in 2013-14.
