More and more business practitioners and students are getting right
away from their accustomed locations to revitalise their views. Why not
come and do so - from our vantage point?
The USB experience is tempting. These are the reasons why.
Not only is the USB situated in arguably one of the most discussed
countries in the world in so far as socio-politics and economics are
concerned, but it is also situated in a city which is one of the most
picturesque, climatically attractive and sought-after tourist
destinations in the world - namely Cape Town.

renowned player in the international business learning community.
International students in ever-increasing numbers are making their way
to this School - both on an individual basis and through study exchange
So, if it's both quality education and a vibrant, multi-cultural
learning experience you're after, look no further.
An increasingly global school
Besides our diverse mix of local students, we are welcoming growing
numbers of longer- and shorter-term MBA students from the USA,
Scandinavia, the European and greater African continents, and even from
further-flung counties such as Russia, Chile and China.
At any one time, our student body comprises about 600 MBA students,
as well as a select number doing two other Master's degrees and PhD in
business related fields. At the same time, hundreds of business people
are taking part in a wide range of non-degree executive learning
programmes, both on- and off-campus.
With the continual coming and going of international students and
lecturers, there is never a dull moment. The school's global interaction

In fact, internationalisation has become a hallmark in all areas of
the USB's activities.
Degrees satisfying local and international requirements
The USB has been successful in earning itself both local popularity
and international status.
The School not only holds a first and third position in the most
recent South African business school rankings and surveys, but has been
internationally accredited by both the European Foundation for
Management Development (EQUIS) and the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
This confirms the local standing of the school, as well as the world
standard of its programmes and services.
The USB is a well-established institution, having been in existence
for over 40 years.
Our School offers a well-rounded, balanced MBA, and provides a solid
grounding in both practice and theory, both aspects of study being
important to business leaders.
As a student, you will get plenty of opportunity to work
individually, but developing the ability to work in teams and cooperate
within the framework of a diverse group on projects and assignments is
highly prized at our School. You will also be encouraged and equipped to
generate original research - an important competency and prerequisite,
we believe, of higher learning - which will stand you in good stead for
an insightful business career.
Our MBA programme has also become known for its high-level leadership
focus, and there is no doubt that the USB experience prepares you for
doing business both in unstable, turbulent business environments and in
the global arena.
