The GIBS MBA programme is currently fully operational in a hybrid environment via a blend of online and classroom-based learning methods. We are managing admissions on the view that the 2022 intake will return to full classroom-based learning. If not, we will fall back to our current mode of operation.
Are you keen to start your own business, or gain a deeper and all-rounded understanding of business to become a more effective manager? If so, this executive Master's in Business Administration (MBA) programme is ideal for you.
This postgraduate qualification is attractive and
unique, as it resonates with individuals who are self-driven, highly motivated,
and entrepreneurial-minded. In obtaining the GIBS MBA, you will gain a powerful framework for making decisions throughout your career. In 2020 the annual UK Financial Times Executive Education rankings, a global benchmark for providers of executive education once again ranked GIBS business school as the top South African and African business school. This is the 15th year running that we have been ranked among the top business schools worldwide. In April 2020, our Master's in Business Administration qualification was ranked among the top 60 business schools globally in the prestigious Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Executive MBA Rankings.
The MBA programme is offered as both a full-time programme over one year or in a modular format over two years. Students need to successfully complete all requirements for the Postgraduate Diploma in General Management (PGDip GM)in order to be eligible to gain entry into the GIBS MBA. The PGDip GM is phase 1 of the MBA Programme. A 60% average is required in this phase in order to proceed onto phase 2 (MBA programme phase). Combined, both phases take two years to complete if done in the part-time/modular format, or one year for full-time students. Should you already hold a postgraduate qualification, you may apply for credits only when you have been accepted into the MBA programme.
