The GSB Masters in Business Administration (MBA) is the only MBA programme in Africa listed in the Financial Times Top 100 Global MBA ranking.

The programme is transformative. It pushes students to their limits and empowers them to reach their best, personally and professionally.

The curriculum is international in scope and standard but with a distinctive orientation to the (South) African context. It has a strong practical emphasis and in addition to addressing the functional areas of business, new streams of learning around communication, leadership and entrepreneurship keep it at the cutting edge of professional development.

The MBA is offered as a one-year, full-time course or in a two-year, modular format for delegates who are unable to study full-time.  Please see the funding opportunities here.
