    • The UCT GSB experience is a demanding one, how do you plan on managing the pressure of the programme; specifically what support will you have from work and family to successfully complete the programme? 
    • Assessment on the PGDip is primarily done through Action Learning Assignments that requires students to integrate and apply their learning from each course directly in their organisations/workplace.
