Why not study Business Management at USB in South Africa?


If you need to freshen up your outlook on business management and broaden your particular perspective on world business, come to the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) in South Africa to do so. There can be no better - nor more pleasurable place - in which to do your MBA - or any other business management specialisation, for that matter.

More and more business practitioners and students are getting right away from their accustomed locations to revitalise their views. Why not come and do so - from our vantage point?

The USB experience is tempting. These are the reasons why.

Not only is the USB situated in arguably one of the most discussed countries in the world in so far as socio-politics and economics are concerned, but it is also situated in a city which is one of the most picturesque, climatically attractive and sought-after tourist destinations in the world - namely Cape Town.

Added to this, the USB has become, over the last number of years, a renowned player in the international business learning community. International students in ever-increasing numbers are making their way to this School - both on an individual basis and through study exchange agreements.

So, if it's both quality education and a vibrant, multi-cultural learning experience you're after, look no further.



An increasingly global school

Besides our diverse mix of local students, we are welcoming growing numbers of longer- and shorter-term MBA students from the USA, Scandinavia, the European and greater African continents, and even from further-flung counties such as Russia, Chile and China.

At any one time, our student body comprises about 600 MBA students, as well as a select number doing two other Master's degrees and PhD in business related fields. At the same time, hundreds of business people are taking part in a wide range of non-degree executive learning programmes, both on- and off-campus.

With the continual coming and going of international students and lecturers, there is never a dull moment. The school's global interaction with more than 30 top international business schools in Europe, the UK, the USA and Australia opens up opportunities and lends an exciting and diverse experience.

In fact, internationalisation has become a hallmark in all areas of the USB's activities.



Degrees satisfying local and international requirements

The USB has been successful in earning itself both local popularity and international status.

The School not only holds a first and third position in the most recent South African business school rankings and surveys, but has been internationally accredited by both the European Foundation for Management Development (EQUIS) and the Association of MBAs (AMBA).

This confirms the local standing of the school, as well as the world standard of its programmes and services.

The USB is a well-established institution, having been in existence for over 40 years.

Our School offers a well-rounded, balanced MBA, and provides a solid grounding in both practice and theory, both aspects of study being important to business leaders.

As a student, you will get plenty of opportunity to work individually, but developing the ability to work in teams and cooperate within the framework of a diverse group on projects and assignments is highly prized at our School. You will also be encouraged and equipped to generate original research - an important competency and prerequisite, we believe, of higher learning - which will stand you in good stead for an insightful business career.

Our MBA programme has also become known for its high-level leadership focus, and there is no doubt that the USB experience prepares you for doing business both in unstable, turbulent business environments and in the global arena.


A technologically advanced campus

The USB is situated on a modern, technologically advanced and well-equipped campus, about 15 km from the centre of Cape Town.

You will have the use of a world-class electronic information centre that will make life as a student easy for you. This hybrid (paper and electronic) library puts you in touch with global information.

The top-of-the-range IT facilities provide you with the full range of internet and e-mail services on campus, while you also have access to the latest software, an e-classroom, a cyber cafe a 'hotspot' covering parts of the campus, a wireless internal network, and an e-learning platform that keeps you in touch with your lecturers, your study material and your personal academic administration. Academic and career counsellors are at your disposal. Convenient lodging and restaurants are available on campus.

What could be easier?



And if you desire recreation?

When you want a break from studies, the splendid tourist attractions of the Cape are within easy reach. Take your pick.

  • You may, for instance, like to visit the nearby countryside with its rolling vineyards and historic Cape Dutch homesteads, to sample Boland wines in the dappled shade of ancient oak trees.
  • You may like to socialise with fellow students at Cape Town's popular Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, while sitting on the apron of great Table Mountain (a world heritage site), at the very water's edge, with seagulls wheeling above.
  • You may like to take a leisurely drive along the breathtaking coastal passes, to visit the wave-battered Cape of Storms, which unnerved early seafarers around this southerly point of Africa.
  • You may like to take the inspirational ferry ride to Robben Island and enter the prison cell inhabited for so many years by South Africa's greatest son, Nelson Mandela.

The list goes on

The USB experience, in its infinite variety, is tempting in all respects.
