If you are seeking the flexibility of combining work with study, our supported distance-learning MBA offers you the perfect solution. It allows you to fit learning and development into your busy work and family lifestyle.
We have mastered the art of combining supported distance-learning with self-study, workshops, enrichment classes, case analysis, conceptual exercises, individual tutor and strong web-based support. This method encourages analysis and discussion of real business cases and contributes to deep learning. The use of internet technologies such as email and web-based support, brings the students and faculty together across any distance or cultural boundary. This allows learning to take place across great distances and brings an interesting cosmopolitan mix to MANCOSA's future graduates.
Our method provides the frameworks and concepts of MBA education in a richer and relevant context – and is responsive to the demands of contemporary business. The programme combines theory with practice to help students acquire a firm grounding in the fundamentals of business management. We place strong emphasis on the practical application of theory so that learning can be applied to real-life work situations.
We give insight into the fields of management, marketing, human resources, operations, economics, corporate strategy, international business and finance. The programme culminates with a research project that not only empowers you with strong research and analytical skills, but enables you to improve your organisation through research. Our experienced faculty will assist and guide you through your research component.
Our practitioner-led approach enables you to immediately implement new knowledge and skills in the everyday workplace. Case studies are an integral part of our programme. When students are presented with a case, they place themselves in the role of a decision maker as they read through the situation and identify the problems encountered. The next step is to perform the necessary analysis – examining the causes and considering alternative courses of action to come to a set of recommendations. This method transforms students into problem-solvers, innovators and team leaders.
