We offer a range of study options, from our academic programmes, including the MBA, to Executive Education short courses as well as customised courses.
The UCT Graduate School of Business (GSB) is triple-crown accredited (EQUIS, AMBA & AACSB) and offers the only MBA in Africa ranked in the UK Financial Times Global Top 100 full-time MBAs. The GSB’s goal is to be a leading emerging-market business school that is relevant both internationally and to its social context, and excellent in its research, teaching and outreach. The GSB’s teaching and research are geared towards its African, emerging-market context and the challenges associated with high degrees of uncertainty, complexity and inequality. Through initiatives like the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Allan Gray Centre for Values-based Leadership and the MTN Solution Space, the GSB seeks to build a new kind of business school: one that is rooted in values and enables positive new ways of thinking and acting in business to achieve sustainable success.
Academic study options include the MBA and the Executive MBA, the Postgraduate Diploma in Management Practice, specialised masters programmes in Development Finance and Inclusive Innovation and doctoral studies. PhD students become part of a vibrant cohort in their first year of study, participating in regular colloquia on organisational theory and methodology. The GSB is also committed to ongoing professional development and lifelong learning through its Executive Education offering.
