UCT Graduate School of Business
The University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business is home to the only full-time African MBA ranked in the top 100 by the prestigious Financial Times and as just one of just 73 schools world-wide to be “triple-crowned” (schools which are accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and the AACSB), the school is among the best in the world.
We take a four-pronged approach to excellence that combines academic rigour, societal relevance, innovation in teaching and thought leadership to transform our students – taking them from a place of knowing to doing to being.
The GSB is committed to making business better. Our full-colour thinking approach challenges taken-for-granted assumptions and practices and encourages students to do the same. With our roots in Africa, our focus is on emerging market business and our teaching and research is geared towards driving development and understanding in this context, which is characterized by high degrees of uncertainty, complexity and inequality.
Through initiatives like the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Allan Gray Centre for Values-based Leadership and the MTN Solution Space, we seek to build a new kind of business school: one that is rooted in values and enables positive new ways of thinking and acting in business to achieve sustainable success.
We offer a range of study options, from our academic programmes, including the MBA and the Executive MBA, to Executive Education short courses as well as masters and doctoral studies. Our campus is located in the heart of the City of Cape Town – one of Africa’s most vibrant and culturally diverse cities.
