Learning Approach

About GSB

Graduates will attest to the fact that the GSB’s learning processes are transformative.

The GSB’s approach to learning is to encourage participants to question and debate the material that is offered to them and to apply it to real-life situations.

One  important facet of the GSB's approach to learning is the immersion process. The integrated campus of the GSB, with its sophisticated learning environment and on-site accommodation and hospitality facilities, allows students to spend every day in an intense atmosphere of study, debate and camaraderie.

Students are provided with relevant learning materials before the course starts along with a detailed course outline and schedule of readings and cases. Additionally, they are given access to a web-linked publications database and “Vula,” UCT's tailor-made e-learning platform.
