IIE MSA

We were founded in 2001, as a campus of Monash University, Australia. On our campus in Ruimsig, Johannesburg, our student population increased steadily over the years and we have advanced to become the largest private higher education precinct in South Africa.

Laureate International Universities became our majority shareholder in 2013, a period that shaped our local identity through the introduction of more than 15 new MSA programmes, whilst establishing MSA as truly African brand, rooted in Africa.

MSA became a world class higher education institution, with a legacy of academic quality and student outcomes and allowing its students to shape their studies, shape their career and shape their future.

In April 2019, ADvTECH acquired MSA from Monash and Laureate. Our name changed to IIE MSA, and became a leading brand of The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE). The IIE is the higher education subsidiary of ADvTECH, and the most accredited (British Accreditation Council) private higher education provider in South Africa.

You willll find us in Ruimsig, in the province of Gauteng, 25 kilometres northwest of the Johannesburg city centre. Our attractive, secure, state-of-the-art campus is complete with student accommodation, computer labs, restaurants, high-tech lecture theatres and sports facilities, including a gym.

MBA Overview

The IIE MSA Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree offered at IIE MSA is a professional MBA programme designed to provide a high level of theoretical engagement, intellectual independence and the ability to resolve complex business problems in an innovative way. This professional MBA embraces the ‘use it now’ concept where students will be able to apply all learnings immediately in their job.

The programme prepares working professionals to lead their organisations or departments, to understand universal business problems and challenges in the South African and global context and to apply best practices and management styles.

Some of the current challenges facing business leaders include learning to think creatively and finding innovative solutions to problems. We understand that an MBA should be more than just an academic experience, so instead of doing a research dissertation all students will participate in a unique “Innovation Project”. This Innovation Project involves practical research and finding strategic, innovative solutions.

Students in the programme are typically working in a variety of different fields. They wish to obtain knowledge and skills in functional business areas such as people management, finance, marketing, economic decision-making, innovation and creativity, entrepreneurship, project management and business strategy in a dynamic era.

The IIE MBA is taught by seasoned academics and industry experts with extensive leadership backgrounds in national and international business environments.

Career opportunities

This programme is particularly relevant for those who wish to lead an organisation, to understand universal business challenges, to apply best practices and to solve complex problems in the private and public sector. MBA graduates take jobs with small, medium and large organisations. They often become entrepreneurs by starting their own businesses. There are many job opportunities available in nearly every business industry imaginable.

Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this IIE MBA it is expected that graduates will be able to:

  • identify and appreciate the opportunities and challenges of local and global businesses in an era of global communications, cultural diversity, ethical challenges and rapid innovation
