Introducing our new PGDip Futures designed around you

You’ve spoken. We’ve listened.

We’ve heard your stories over the past year, and our business school has responded to this era of hyper-change with a revolution of our very own: a set of postgraduate diplomas designed with you in mind.

After taking key learnings from the pandemic into account, as well as factoring in your recent experiences, this new PGDip is specifically designed to give you the invaluable flexibility for studying while you work. It will also help you acquire cutting-edge skills relevant to our unique modern circumstances. Most of all, this new PGDip allows you to do it your way.


What’s new?

  • More options and flexibility: Choose between 1 or 2 years of study, and from one of two convenient formats: Blended Learning or Modular.
  • Foundation and Specialisation Phase modules: The modules of the redesigned PGDips are split into foundation and specialisation phases.
  • Access flexibility: Start your postgraduate career with the completion of short courses that you can present in lieu of modules in your foundational phase.
  • More accessible entry into MBA or Master’s degree: Obtaining an overall average of 65% on your PGDip will contribute significantly towards being admitted to the corresponding Master’s degree at our business school.
  • Diversity and networking: Attend each of the redesigned PGDips’ foundation phase classes together with other students who have chosen the class.
  • More competitive pricing: The redesign enables us to provide you with the most competitive pricing on fees for these new programmes.

  • Create a desired future: Gain insight into the underlying trends and forces that shape the future.
  • Deal with rapid change: Understand how to handle the increasing complexity of an ever changing world.
  • Flexible learning formats: Learn while you earn through each Futures Studies programme (see “Flexible learning formats” below).

Who should apply?

You could be a strategic planner, managing director or a CEO involved in the strategy of your business. You could be someone who requires a holistic understanding the underlying forces and trends that shape the future. Whichever level of management you’re on, if you want to play a role in creating a better future for South Africa and beyond, a qualification in Futures Studies is for you. The PhD will serve you well if you are interested in an academic career.
