View Profile


UCT GSB Customised Programmes are essentially co-created, adding to the richness and relevance of your training intervention.
Your dedicated support team will include:

  • A Learning Design Partner will be your main point of contact. They will conduct an initial needs assessment, recommend next steps and assemble an appropriate team to design and deliver the programme.
  • The Course Convenor (Learning Integrator) will be responsible for programme design, development and facilitation. They will establish programme goals and lead a collaborative process to develop an effective learning solution.
  • Our World-Class Faculty of thought leaders with applied research expertise, will bring their skills to the classroom and employ action learning techniques to make the content relevant to your business challenges.
  • A Programme Manager will be responsible for project management and the delivery of a successful client and delegate experience - whether on campus or further afield.

You can choose the place for delivery that works best for your organisation – whether it be at the UCT GSB's world-class Breakwater Campus in Cape Town, our executive teaching facility in Johannesburg, or in-house. We are equipped to deliver off site and our footprint extends internationally.

  • Programmes can be adapted from existing short courses for continuing professional development, draw on our accredited academic programmes, or be designed from the ground up.
  • Our distinctive design approach co-creates an effective training intervention to ensure relevance and clear outcomes that are aligned to your business strategy.
  • We identify the most appropriate people to present your programme. The UCT GSB has the largest full-time faculty in Africa - and many of our academics are globally recognised. In addition, we have access to a wide network of experienced practitioners and guest speakers who help to bring content alive.
  • We offer unique insight into doing business in emerging markets.
