Broadening access to postgraduate education

  • The UCT GSB is committed to ensuring that a world-class business education is accessible to a diverse pool of future leaders.
  • High potential individuals, who may have the talent to create much-needed significant transformative impact on business and society on the African continent, are too often dissuaded from pursuing their business education goals due to financial constraints.
  • As such, the GSB is committed to making funding and scholarship opportunities available to talented, motivated and deserving individuals who meet the entrance criteria for our academic programmes.
  • **PLEASE NOTE – All scholarship applicants MUST first have begun the application process for their academic programme of choice.
