We are very excited to welcome you to this special place.

Student societies are a great opportunity to extend your networks and business skills. They are open to all UCT GSB students and alumni.

UCT GSB Career Fairs are much-anticipated annual attractions, that showcase our talent. The fairs allow recruiters to engage on a one-to-one basis at the UCT GSB, at a time when most students are available. Hosted over two separate half days and focussing respectively on: Corporate and Consulting and Innovation and New Ventures, the fairs take place annually and are normally structured a week apart in May.

The Cape Town Breakwater Campus is a unique campus in a unique city. The campus derives its name from the fact that the site once housed convicts who built the breakwater for the Cape Town harbour in 1861. The present building dates from 1901 and is equipped with all essential services and offers easy access to the city, shopping district and sporting facilities.

Studying at the UCT GSB can be intense and sometimes, our students need a place to relax and unwind. The stylish student bar, The Brig, forms an integral part of the student campus experience hosting student social events throughout the year.

The UCT GSB's exchange programme enables students to spend a semester at an international university to gain a fresh perspective on their development. Students typically go on exchange in January after they have completed their course work. Although they do not obtain credits for courses they take, they are given a certificate listing the courses attended.
