PMR Golden Arrow Award marks UKZN GSB&L's upward trajectory
The University of KwaZulu-Natal’s (UKZN) Graduate School of Business and Leadership (GSB&L) is ranked second overall in the 2019 Professional Market Research Africa (PMR.africa) annual national survey of Accredited Business Schools offering MBA degrees in South Africa. The UKZN GSB&L scored 8.15 out of a possible 10, and within the pool of 18 business schools rated this year.

Professor Ana Martins, Acting Dean and Head of GSB&L, says: “We have been on an ascending path in the PMR rankings over the past five years, moving from sixth place in 2015 to our new position. This has motivated our academics and support staff to think beyond the need to merely achieve enrolment targets and filling programmes, while also embracing quality and professionalism".

The School Operations Manager, Mr Dhashendra Naicker says, the PMR Golden Arrow Award is an opportunity to celebrate excellence as recognised by the employers of MBA graduates in South Africa. “Through the years these rankings have helped us set bench marks for ourselves and to aspire to greater heights. The current ranking has given us the opportunity to recognise the collective effort and the hard teamwork of both the academic and support staff”.

The GSB&L will focus on curricula redesign and realignment, cognisant of local, continental and international needs. It will also concentrate on the targeted use of adjunct, associate and visiting professors, to augment the current skill mix. It will also pursue more robust industrial and academic partnerships.

Professor Martins adds, “Our students are able to create value by possessing a deep understanding of the global business climate that is dynamic, multifaceted and in constant flux by instilling in the students higher order skills necessary to solve challenges that arise. We infuse value-laden leadership and management skills in our students enabling students to work in teams, across diverse cultures and to communicate proficiently. Therefore, our students emerge as ethically-driven performers, adroit with skills sets to address global concerns”.
