“The Cape Peninsula University of Technology’s Global Business School, based in Cape Town, South Africa, is an environment where you would want to complete your internationally recognised postgraduate studies and continue your professional development, reflect on current and best practices and open your mind to a world of opportunities and possibilities,” says Prof. Mzikayisa Binza, Dean of the Faculty of Business.

“Nelson Mandela said that education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

 Driven by this statement, the Global Business School seeks to integrate best practice, with the focus on Development Leadership and Responsible Business Practice. We do this in a global context but from an African perspective. Built into all our qualifications is the awareness that we have a responsibility to society and a philosophy of ‘doing good to do well’. Our unique approach is to use an academic base to provide programmes and business expertise that are practical and achieve the difficult balance between theory and practice. We provide programmes that add value and are relevant to personal and professional life and underpin a management career.

The Business School has strong, mutually beneficial relationships with our international, public and private partners. We rely on these partners for work-integrated projects, funded research opportunities, postgraduate placements and trend-setting case studies testing future best practice. Added value lies in providing to partners and current and former participants, a stimulating forum for the exchange of ideas and excellent networking opportunities.

In the current international economic climate business, industry, government and education need to think critically, creatively and  innovatively about how best to integrate ‘responsible business practices’. To accommodate our partners and participants various blended learning delivery modes are available. These include full thesis research and course based block-release programmes with four one-week contact sessions per year and customised in-house management. In addition, leadership, coaching and mentorship qualifications and short courses are on offer, all supported by our e-learning student support system, incorporating latest technology.

Certain programmes offer community based experiential learning or semester study abroad opportunities. International students are welcomed as they lend an alternate world view, depth and new dimensions to discussion. As a result, this influences the social, political, cultural, educational and economic environments that have an impact on leadership, professional management, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.
