Certificate of Excellence in Global Business


The GSB offers executives from around the world access to a unique global programme. The GSB is the only business school in South Africa, and one of two in Africa, to join an alliance of 19 top global business schools that offer the non-degree programme. The Certificate of Excellence in Global Business pioneered by The Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM) allows participants to design their personal curricula by providing access to over 120 courses at leading institutions.

Participants choose courses covering critical topics across categories and locations, taught by leading academics at GNAM partner schools. To qualify for the Certificate, participants should complete three courses taken at three different schools, in at least two countries. The courses must total 15 days of executive education over a two-year period.

Participants pay an initial fee of $1 500 to join the programme and receive a 10% discount on the fee for each course they choose from each university. After completing their three chosen courses, participants must deliver a capstone presentation to a panel including a representative from each participating school to be awarded the GNAM certificate. The capstone presentation demonstrates how they have integrated knowledge from each school and how they are implementing it in their context.
