As businesses across the continent rise to the opportunities and challenges that managers and leaders face in starting, building and running businesses, we rely continually on theories and models of practice that often were created under very different circumstances and for different audiences. It's time for us to generate thought leadership that assists countries, businesses and leaders to make better business decisions. Our doctoral programmes are dedicated to developing the knowledge, skills and attributes that enable our students to contribute to creating thought leadership about business in Africa. The GIBS DBA is accredited through the Association of MBAs, making the degree the only internationally-accredited business doctorate in South Africa.
The programme is designed to meet the needs of the mature, self-motivated scholar. It provides a blend of individual and peer interactive learning challenges that stretch and test potential. As an outcome, the successful learner should be equipped to create scientifically grounded knowledge and contribute to positive business results through intellectual leadership.
I trust that the information on this website will guide you in making your decision to be a part of this vibrant and growing community of scholars.
