WBS MBA student testimonials
The WBS MBA turned out to be a personal transformation journey which was well worth the time and financial investment. It equipped me with the tools that gave me clarity of decision with regards to what career path I should pursue further, and I got to understand the holistic view of the business ecosystem, its interaction with government as well as with the resource markets.
I also understood that one should not go into business without a game-changer offering in the market one intends entering or a growth strategy in place for expected returns. I have since gained a competitive edge in my career as the MBA gave me that something-extra that separates me from my peers.
The WBS MBA has turned out to be one of the best career decisions I ever took to this day.
- Dumisani Sibanda, MBA graduate (2019/2020)
One of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life, was obtaining the WBS MBA. The skills developed through my MBA have allowed me to think globally when it comes to tackling current and future business challenges. It has positioned me as one of the leading industry experts, in my sphere of work, within the banking sector.
Today I work for one of the leading multinationals in within the financial services sector and empowered to make key business decisions that drive the bottom line but most importantly, those that positively and sustainably impact our customers and communities in markets within which we operate across Africa.
- Tumi Phungwayo, MBA graduate (2017/2018)
While the full time MBA gave me the ability to take a step back and really understand, holistically, what goes into running a business, it did so much more than that. It gave me lifelong friends from all over world, refined critical thinking skills and access to incredible business resources in the form of panel discussions, thought and business leaders, personalised career management tools and mentors. But most importantly, the MBA put me on a path to maximising my personal growth. The syndicate work helped improve my group work skills, the Leadership Quest helped me discover how I can be the best and most authentic version of myself, and the international exchange helped me develop the independence and perseverance needed to pursue my passions. No-one can deny that doing the MBA is tough, but it was also one of the best years of my life.
