USB’s MBA is aimed at producing managers, professionals and entrepreneurs who can lead responsibly, make sound decisions, think strategically, communicate effectively and act as stewards of society. If you are aiming towards senior management positions and leadership roles, the MBA will prepare you for this. USB’s MBA is rigorous. It balances solid quantitative modules with personal development and leadership skills to deliver well-rounded graduates. Collaborative learning – where students learn from each other – is a key feature of the USB MBA. Our MBA students are mature people: 34% of them have between 7 and 11 years of work experience while 42% have 12 or more years of work experience. Also, the students are diverse in terms of their undergraduate studies, work experience, geographies and cultures. The unique knowledge that each student brings to the table adds considerable richness to collaborative learning, enabling students to work with different perspectives. USB’s MBA offers a generalist stream, for those who want to manage the functional areas of any business at senior manage level (career switchers), and two specialisation streams, for those who want domain expertise at senior management level in either in Health Care Leadership or Managing International Organisations:
It is important to note that the core modules of all the MBA streams are the same. Two of the MBA streams have concentrations of modules that allow students to acquire specialised knowledge of the management of either international organisations or health care. These streams do not denote separate MBAs. All students will graduate with an MBA from Stellenbosch University.
