Making the choice to do an MBA is a life-changing decision. Our flexible two and a half year flagship MBA programme is specifically designed for people who are employed full-time. With the pressures of a career, family and social commitments of most MBA students, experience has taught us that the quality of our programme materials and student support makes a great impact on not only our students’ careers, but also on time management in their lives, while they study.
There are a number of Business Schools and Universities that offer a one-year (full-time) MBA. Whilst this type of demanding and intensive programme may have unduly earned the notorious reputation as ‘the divorce course’, it does nevertheless require significant and radical change in the MBA student’s life to cope with this study schedule and routine. For students who may have ample spare time, flexible working hours to attend regular lectures, adequate income whilst studying full-time, limited family responsibilities and an ability to handle extreme pressure, the one-year MBA may be a feasible option and we congratulate anyone with the dedication to get through it.
For those students with busy lives, family commitments and full-time careers, we offer an alternative that allows one to balance the competing priorities in one’s life and thereby presents a much greater chance of success. By offering a supported distance learning MBA that gives the working student a realistic time frame and adequate support, our students even find that they enjoy and appreciate their studies, have the energy to apply what they learn to their working environment and benefit from having the time at the end of their course to make their research project directly beneficial to their career and/or employer.
The testimonials from our past students, attest to the way our students feel about their studies and the genuine impact our MBA programme has had on their careers. The research topics of our students are both topical and relevant. We are very proud of the research output that our students generate while on the MBA programme and for their contribution to the ever-expanding body of knowledge and research in business studies nationally and beyond.
Any significant investment demands substantial return – an MBA degree is both an investment of your time and money. Global statistics indicate that the MBA graduate can expect their earnings to increase by 130% over a three-year period after their completion of an MBA degree (
survey – 6/9/2004). These statistics are of course subject to many variables, but the fact remains that, almost universally, MBA graduates increase their earning potential as well as their potential for career advancement.
In a local context, Regent’s mission is to provide quality higher education to meet the needs of the Southern African region. Regent Business School has observed that the cost factor involved in doing an MBA is, in many cases, highly prohibitive. This is a concerning dynamic as the Southern African region as a whole and South Africa in particular, grapples with skills shortages, not least of all, an acute shortage of managerial skills and capacity across all sectors of the economy. By delivering a cost-effective and quality assured MBA programme, we aim to meaningfully contribute to the development of management capacity and thereby strengthen the growth of business in Southern Africa.
At Regent Business School we have always seen the benefit of a career-orientated MBA. Our MBA offers specialised electives, which allows our students to tailor their MBA to their career, whether their focus is health care management, finance, marketing or public sector management. We look forward to working with our students to help them achieve their professional and personal goals and develop the competencies, confidence and networks vital for future business leadership roles. We are committed to our students and committed to providing quality in every facet of our MBA programme.
