University of Cape Town, Graduate School of Business

Rated as the best business school in Africa by its global peers, the UCT Graduate School of Business is a school on the move, with a vibrant and pioneering spirit. Although small by international standards, it wields a reputation for excellence and emerging market expertise. It is one of just three business schools in Africa with triple-crown accreditation (AMBA, EQUIS, and AACSB) and boasts the only full-time MBA in Africa ranked in the Financial Times Global Top 100 MBAs. Understanding that emerging economy business is confronted by high degrees of uncertainty, complexity and often, excessive inequality, the GSB is focused on developing a more values-based, sustainable approach to business. To be successful today, managers need resilience and courage. They need to challenge taken-for-granted assumptions and practices and be able and prepared to innovate. The GSB takes a four-pronged approach to excellence that combines academic rigour, societal relevance, innovation in teaching and thought leadership to transform students - taking them from a place of knowing, to doing, to being.
