The USB's academic offering
The University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB), situated in Bellville near Cape Town, offers MBA, Master's, MPhil and PhD programmes.  We also offer shorter business programmes, seminars, workshops and consultation services.  Focusing on leadership competencies, we equip students with a thorough understanding of the unique demands of the South African as well as international business environment.

International accreditation
The USB was the first business school in Africa to receive an international
EQUIS accreditation. The USB was also the first business school of a South African university to receive the international
AMBA accreditation for its MBA programme. 

South African accreditation
The USB MBA is fully accredited by the Council on Higher Education. The USB is one of only six South African business schools offering an MBA with full accreditation.

As an internationally accredited business school with an internationally accredited MBA programme, the USB offers you the benefits of quality education focused on the development of management and leadership in South Africa. 


Degree programmes
The University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) offers
MBA, Masters, MPhil and PhD programmes - all focused on the business development of management and leadership in South Africa.  Our contribution to knowledge comes from the extensive research on all aspects of management and business undertaken by our lecturers, PhD students and research centres. 
The USBoffers an internationally accredited full-time MBA (1 year of lectures plus research report),
part-time MBA  (lectures over 2 years plus research report) and modular MBA (lectures over 3 years plus research report). 
Our MBA programme is aligned with international best practice and focuses on the development of
high-level leadership competencies which lead to organisational success in unstable environments.
The programme's four phases cover the basic principles of management, functional and integrated management, management in context and finally a research report.  The core course includes general and financial management skills, marketing, human resources, information systems management as well as production, international and strategic management. 
Although a generalist approach is followed, there is ample opportunity for specialisation through a selection of electives.  We also have a strong research focus in order to contribute to new knowledge
and we believe in a high level of interaction between student and lecturer.
Because of the exchange rate favouring European and American students, these students will find that they can follow programmes of international standing at our School at extremely competitive prices.  The MBA fees are payable in ZAR (SA Rand) and the cost for 2004 is 11 000 Euro.
