MBA unisa – Master of Business Administration

Applications open 5 August and close 30 November for the 2021-2022 intake.

An MBA is regarded by many as the ticket to the C-suite.  After all you’d be hard-pressed to find a CEO who doesn’t have one.  More than anything, an MBA is structured to turn a manager into a holistic leader capable of steering an organisation and its people to success.  The MBA gives you access to continue your studies towards a DBL, providing you meet the admission requirements of the DBL.
