We are home to the only internationally (AMBA) accredited MBA in Africa for both contact and online distance learning.

Underpinning our approach to teaching and research is a philosophy of ethical and sustainable business that is aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
MBS is the only business school in South Africa that focuses its postgraduate qualifications within Financial Services, which can lead on to the MBA programme. This includes Postgraduate Diplomas in Banking and Investment Management.
Our highly qualified academic staff have extensive industry experience, which ensures a learning environment that promotes growth-producing experiences for students.
We have 24 years experience in delivering online business education solutions.
Our mission is developing ethical leaders for the common good and our business school is a key contributor to ethical and sustainable business practices.
We do this by employing our academic commitment:
Academic leadership and management provided by qualified and knowledgeable academic staff
Diversity in the student and teaching body
Technology that supports teaching and learning
Quality at the core of all our activities
Research that informs and enhances teaching and learning
There is always valuable theory in a book, but the actual magic happens when students apply their knowledge, supported by our learning philosophy that promotes constant involvement and engagement in the learning process. It is through this immersion that is built into our course modules, that the knowledge and the skills start being inculcated into behaviours, and the competence is learned.
Our qualifications deliver on our promise to instil future-fit skills for ethical and sustainable business practices and enable our students who have journeyed with us to navigate changing environments effectively.
