Why study Master of Business Administration?

The Monash South Africa (MSA) Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is a professional MBA designed to provide a high level of theoretical engagement, intellectual independence and the ability to resolve complex business problems in an innovative way. This professional MBA embraces the ‘use it now’ concept where students will be able to apply all learnings immediately in their job.

The MBA prepares working professionals to lead their organisations or departments, to understand universal business problems and challenges in the South African and global context and to apply best practices and management styles.

Some of the current challenges facing business leaders include learning to think creatively and finding innovative solutions to problems. We understand that an MBA should be more than just an academic experience, so instead of doing a research dissertation all students will participate in a unique “Innovation Project”. This Innovation Project involves practical research and finding strategic, innovative solutions.

Students in the MBA are typically working in a variety of different fields. They wish to obtain knowledge and skills in functional business areas such as people management, finance, marketing, economic decision-making, innovation and creativity, entrepreneurship, project management and business strategy in a dynamic era.

The MSA MBA is taught by seasoned academics and industry experts with extensive leadership backgrounds in national and international business environments.

This programme is offered and certified by Monash South Africa. Successful completion of this programme leads to a Monash South Africa qualification.

Career opportunities

This course is particularly relevant for those who wish to lead an organisation, to understand universal business challenges, to apply best practices and to solve complex problems in the private and public sector. MBA graduates take jobs with small, medium and large organisations. They often become entrepreneurs by starting their own businesses.
