MBA – Master of Business Administration

Applications for the 2021 intake are open from 15 September to 15 December 2020

An MBA is regarded by many as the ticket to the C-suite.  After all you’d be hard-pressed to find a CEO who doesn’t have one.  More than anything, an MBA is structured to turn a manager into a holistic leader capable of steering an organization and its people to success.  The MBA gives you access to continue your studies towards a DBL, providing you meet the admission requirements of the DBL.

Admission requirements and supporting documents

  • A Bachelor’s Honours Degree or a Postgraduate Diploma, with a minimum 120 credits, OR a 480-credit Bachelor’s Degree. Please supply a copy of your transcript, indicating the symbol or percentage obtained for each module and indicating whether or not the qualification was completed.
  • Original documentary proof of at least three years’ managerial/ professional work experience. This could include a letter from your employer on an official letterhead, indicating your period of service. Alternatively a certificate of service could be provided.  Applicants operating their own business, should submit a statement from their auditor, accountant, attorney or partner.
