EMBA

Overview

If you want to invest in yourself and your future, there is no better programme than the MBA in Executive Management (EMBA) at the UCT GSB.

Study with the best

The EMBA is an applied learning experience for executives and leaders that will help you to develop in your executive role so that it is more fulfilling and purposeful. Study part-time over two years with some of the best thinkers in the field of management and leadership development at Africa’s top business school and allow new possibilities to emerge.

Move from doing to being

Theory alone cannot explain practice; for that we need to be - and the EMBA fosters a sense of being in management that is powerful. It allows leaders and executives to become more mindfully present and develop practical wisdom and prudence so that they are able to prioritise in complexity and attend to what matters most.

Being yourself

The EMBA builds a crucial bridge between theory and practice. It will demand that you integrate the raw experience of being in management with progressive theory. You will emerge more comfortable with complexity, better able to manage in paradox, and committed to engaging with the social and economic challenges that 21st century organisations have to navigate.

Go beyond

More than a traditional MBA, the EMBA is targeted at senior, experienced individuals working in executive roles who consciously identify a need to enhance their ability to conceptualise and strategise, rather than focusing on their proficiency in functional management. The programme assumes competence in the fundamentals of business and emphasises process, synthesis, critique and insight leading to the application of new learning relevant for the executive level.
