MBA Structure


The Tshwane School for Business and Society (TSB) MBA programme for executives is offered in Pretoria, Mbombela and Polokwane. Classes run on Saturday mornings from 08:00 – 14:00. All classes are delivered from the Pretoria Campus and, at the same time, streamed to MBA students in our Mbombela and Polokwane campuses. Safe and secure parking is provided to our students on our campuses in Pretoria, Mbombela and Polokwane.

Our MBA programme is structured into eight compulsory semester modules, two year-long modules and a choice of three elective modules. The two year-long modules, Research Methodology and the Research Project, are offered in the first and second year, respectively. They are integrated with the other trimester modules over the two years of the MBA programme. The other programme modules are:

  • Leadership and Organisational Behaviour
  • Human Resource and Change Management
  • Quantitative and Qualitative Data Analyses
  • Business Strategy
  • Macro & Micro Economic Analyses
  • Strategic Marketing
  • Accounting and Financial Management
  • Operations Management and Operations Research

The current list of electives from which students must chose three modules are:

  • International Business
  • Management of Technology and Innovation
  • Project Management
  • Public Sector Leadership and Governance
  • Quality Management and Monitoring & Evaluation
  • Entrepreneurship and Business Development

International field trips that are linked to electives form an integral part of our MBA programme. Students apply to be part of an international fieldtrip and if successful, have the cost of the trip levied against the specific elective to which the fieldtrip is linked. As such, the cost of the international trip becomes part of their student fees. The purpose of the international field trips is to expose students to international business developments, various cultural differences and differing ideologies. These fieldtrips offer students first-hand experience of the business cultures and approaches in different countries and contribute to the learning experience in the specific elective. TSB currently offers four elective linked international field trips to MBA students.
