Academic Programmes
​​​​​​​​​​​This offering resonates with managers who are self-driven and highly motivated and who are looking to gain a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of business. It is for individuals who do not only want to become more effective managers, but also have the aspiration to progress onto the GIBS MBA programme.​
The programme is designed to meet the needs of the mature, self-motivated scholar. It provides a blend of individual and peer interactive learning challenges that stretch and test potential. As an outcome, the successful learner should be equipped to create scientifically grounded knowledge and contribute to positive business results through intellectual leadership.
​No two individuals are the same. At GIBS, we understand that everyone is different. That's why we've created an MBA as unique as you are. With GIBS, you get to choose exactly how your MBA will work for you. With the widest choice of electives and global experiences you can customise your MBA to suit you. Dynamic, challenging, interactive and inspiring, it's aimed at developing well-rounded and effective managers and human beings who are committed to choosing their own path.
Equipping you for business life in the fast lane. As a driven university graduate in a hurry to get to the top, you leave university with good technical knowledge and start your career with little or no business experience. The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration (PDBA) is aimed at fast-tracking high-potential young graduates into the world of business.
The GIBS Programme for Management Development (PMD) is an innovative and stimulating learning experience. Both the content and design of this intensive programme have been based on a needs analysis conducted with South African business leaders.
