- Diploma in Business
TEQSA has, under subsection 53(1) of the TEQSA Act, imposed two conditions on the accreditation of the above course of study. S P Jain School of Global Management Pty Limited must:
Prior to marketing and enrolling students in the Diploma of Business provide to TEQSA a course rationale for the Diploma in Business which sets out the course objectives and outlines how and why online delivery will achieve these.
Prior to marketing and the enrolment of students in the accredited course of study provide evidence of accurate and current course information and copies of all student information materials for the Diploma in Business to TEQSA with particular attention to:
- accurate reflection of registration authorities and registration status as a higher education provider in Australia
- accurate reflection of staff associations with other universities
- grievance procedures in line with current Higher Education Threshold Standards
- provision of a clear and comprehensive overview of the objectives and rationale of the course of study to prospective students.
The course accreditation covers delivery at all Australian sites.
Main reasons for decision
TEQSA considers that the decision to apply conditions to S P Jain School of Global Management Pty Limited's application for accreditation of a course of study is consistent with the basic principles for regulation in Part 2 of the TEQSA Act, as S P Jain School of Global Management Pty Limited is at risk of not complying with a number of the Threshold Standards. TEQSA considers that the risks of non-compliance with the Threshold Standards involve a number of matters that may affect S P Jain School of Global Management Pty Limited's capacity to manage and deliver its higher education awards.
- The broad issues which relate to the Diploma in Business include:
a) Design of the course of study, in particular course rationale and objectives (PCAS 1.6)
b) Accurate and current information for prospective students (PCAS 2.4).
