Partnering for High Performance
A special feature of the GIBS management programme learning experience is that you will be working in a syndicate group. Each syndicate group will be structured so that there is a balance of skills and backgrounds in the team and each team will be required to assist each other with the necessary syndicate assignments.
Company-based mentors are an important feature of the programme. You will need to identify someone in your organisation who will provide you with leadership training and act as a coach or mentor during your studies. He or she will be required to give you advice as needed, provide support and assist with finding information or opening doors in the company where company-related tasks are set by the lecturers. Should you be unsure about the steps to follow in appointing a mentor, you can contact the programme management team via email at

If you have a special need, GIBS will look into accommodating this. However, it is a requirement that the student will need to provide medical certificates and supporting documentation as requested by the GIBS Admissions Office. To request special needs assistance, please contact the Admissions Office before you complete your application.
Observant students will be excused from class, but the onus is on the student to make up for missed class and to plan in advance with the programme management team.
