About

University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business (UCT GSB)

With a spectacular Waterfront campus in the heart of one of South Africa’s most picturesque cities, The University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business can compete with any business school when it comes to aesthetics. Thankfully though, there is much more to UCT GSB than a pretty campus. It is one of just three business schools in Africa to have received the coveted triple crown accreditation, whilst its MBA programs have been ranked amongst the top 50 in the world by the Financial Times and QS. There is little doubt that UCT GSB has positioned itself as one of the top business schools in Africa and one that is now globally-recognised.

Africa is set to have the largest workforce in the world by 2035, so the responsibility of creating jobs to fulfill this demand will fall to graduates from leading African business schools such as this one. Those who choose to study here will have the opportunity to impact upon the future success of an entire continent by starting innovative businesses, developing Africa’s links with the global economy and exchanging knowledge with fellow business leaders.

The MBA programs here come in three formats: modular, full-time and executive. They all focus not only on Africa itself but its place within the wider global economy. You’ll gain a greater understanding of international business within an emerging market context as well as improved critical thinking, problem solving and analytical skills. You will then be able to apply these skills to real-life situations, with an estimated two-thirds of the Executive MBA program, for example, taking place in the workplace. Succeeding in a complex and globalised economy is no easy task, but the UCT GSB MBA will give you all the tools necessary to do so.
