VALUE PROPOSITION 

As Africa’s leading business school, the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business (UCT GSB) is actively promoting a new model of business school, focused on developing leaders in emerging markets, grounded in ethical values, and equipped to handle complexity, uncertainty, and continuous change.

This approach has been internationally recognised; the GSB remains the only business school in Africa ranked in the Financial Times Full-Time MBA Top 100 for its full-time programme, and the Cape Town-based school is one of just 59 schools world-wide to be “triple-crowned” (schools which are accredited by AMBA, EQUIS, and the AACSB). The school was also ranked 59 in The Economist’s ranking of executive MBA programmes 2013, the only African business school to make the inaugural, ‘Which MBA?’ ranking. The GSB maintains its position as Africa’s top business school through its thought leadership, research, and teaching. The school is dedicated to pioneering inclusive business thinking, values-based leadership and social innovation in Africa.

Key initiatives at the UCT GSB that are geared towards fulfilling this vision and mission include the: 

• Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship

• Solution Space/Workshop 17, an innovation and entrepreneurship hub to foster African innovation

• Allan Gray Centre for Values-Based Leadership Recognising that there are multiple realities and truths, the school teaches students to engage with different ways of understanding what’s real and true, leading to the discovery of new tools for living in the midst of complexity.
