Study for a postgraduate diploma designed around your needs at an internationally accredited South African Business School

If you want a postgraduate diploma that will equip you with employable skills, and that makes it easy for you to study while you work, then the PGDips at the University of Stellenbosch Business School will serve you well.

They have been newly designed with content relevance, flexibility and convenience in mind to offer postgraduate diplomas in Botswana – and even further studies should you consider an MBA or other Master’s degree after that.

For the redesign, we have consulted with top industry and learning design experts, and benchmarked our objectives with elite international business schools. We did all of this to ensure that these new PGDips in Botswana will help you benefit from our business school’s most recognised areas of expertise.

Importantly, you will be studying at a business school with all three of the major international accreditations – AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. Only about 1% of the world’s business schools have the “Triple Crown” of accreditations. Also, we were the first business school from an African university to have achieved these accreditations.

Flexibility – so you can study while you work

We have redesigned the courses to ensure that you have the ultimate study flexibility. You can choose the course duration and attendance option most suitable for you. This means you can choose to complete your Postgraduate Diploma in Botswana over one year or two years. You can also choose the study format: blended learning (regular online classes, usually one late afternoon session per week if you want to complete your studies in one year, or every fortnight if you are spreading your studies over two years) or modular (blocks of classes spread over time).

The modules of the redesigned PGDips are offered in two phases: a foundation phase and a specialisation phase. The foundation phase modules focus on responsible leadership, understanding the local and global ecosystems in which we operate, thinking frameworks for better decision making, and more. The modules in the specialisation phase are programme-specific.

More about the convenience of blended learning

The blended learning classes are not just any type of online classes. They are offered in a specific time-slot in a high-tech environment that enables you to immerse yourself in a premium learning experience using an internet-linked laptop from wherever you are in the world. Our lecturers are trained in the art of virtual facilitation and teaching.

This means that for most of your studies, you can stay in your country – logging in from your board room or home office, or wherever your work is taking you. This also implies savings on travel and accommodation costs.
