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.

This Innovation Project involves practical research and finding strategic, innovative solutions.
