The health, safety, and well-being of the UCT GSB community is our top priority.

As a result of the outbreak of COVID-19, we have a made an informed decision to postpone all our Executive Education courses until further notice. In their stead, a number of online short courses are being made available through strategic third-party partnerships, or being delivered via UCT's Emergency Remote Teaching protocol. The UCT GSB is operating under the advice of UCT and UCT Health Services, which are monitoring information from local health officials, the South African National Department of Health and the National Institute of Communicable Diseases.

While we endeavour to update each course page with the new dates as and when they become available, the situation remains fluid. Rest assured that should the course for which you have booked not run, you will be fully refunded.
