JBS Online MBA

A fully online MBA is now being offered by the Johannesburg Business School. This qualification has been designed to help students grow businesses and provides knowledge and guidance to develop and implement a strategy. The initial focus of the study will fall on finding your purpose, then you will learn the skills and what it takes to build a sustainable business, understanding national and international trends.

The faculty members are “professors of practice” and they have a practical approach, providing students with the knowledge and skills they need to grow a business.

There is no thesis, but rather a capstone project which requires the student to unpack a real-life business challenge they may have experienced, working with a supervisor to come up with a workable solution.

The candidates selected for this programme will benefit from experienced faculty members and networks across the globe.
