Top African university - Eduniversal ranking

 

The GSB has over the past 50 years charted its own distinctly African path. Year after year, our school is recognised by our global peers at the Eduniversal World Convention and in the QS Global 200 survey as the top business school in Africa.

The GSB is one of only three business schools in Africa to have the prestigious triple-crown accreditation (AACSB, AMBA & EQUIS). Our school is also a member of and accredited by AABS, a unique African accreditation, which promotes excellence in management education in Africa through collaboration, capacity building and quality improvement. And our full-time MBA was ranked in the Financial Times Global Top 100 MBAs for 12 consecutive years and was the only African business school to feature in this ranking.

Our teaching, learning and research is directed towards building a more economically prosperous, more equitable, and more integrated continent. Our faculty is inspired to transform innovative ideas into relevant solutions for emerging market problems and to generate top-notch teaching materials to help others to do the same. The school is constantly investing in quality scholarship and strong partnerships to support these aims.
