The UCT GSB is proud to be part of a strong international academic community – one which celebrates diversity, encourages exchange and fosters collaboration.

We have partnerships with leading business schools, that all have excellent reputations and rankings, including MBA exchange programmes with 47 business schools around the world. Our exchange partners offer UCT GSB students a prized opportunity to spend a term studying abroad, without the burden of paying international student fees.

We are also the only business school in South Africa to be part of the 32-member Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM) hosted by the Yale School of Management in the US. This gives UCT GSB students preferential access to various elite global business schools for intensive one-week programmes, an array of online courses, global case study competitions, and an increasingly active GNAM Alumni network. This partnership also increases the number and diversity of international visiting students to the UCT GSB.

As part of the CEMS Alliance the GSB joins top business schools in 34 countries around the world to offer the CEMS Master in International Management. UCT GSB MIM students have the opportunity to participate in a one-term exchange at one of 34 CEMS international partner universities with around 70 corporate partners – giving them a unique African experience with unparalleled global reach.
