Learn and develop

Delivered by world-class faculty, the GIBS MBA curriculum creates an opportunity for you to become a well-rounded and effective manager, offering students boundless opportunities to learn and develop, both personally and professionally.

Through a potent mix of classroom lectures, case studies, business simulations, company visits and syndicate projects, as well as relevant exposure to the best practices of South African and global leadership, the GIBS MBA gives you a competitive edge in the short-term application of relevant knowledge which has long-term strategic value for your career.

A good business school recognises shifting dynamics within the industry and accommodates them in its curriculum. The compulsory global module, a distinctive element of the GIBS MBA programme, provides students with global exposure in a destination that is linked to global best practice and allows students to study first-hand how their peers in diverse markets operate.

In turn, that learning is translated back into their own companies. Potential destinations includeIndia, Latin America, China, Japan and the East and West coasts of the USA.
