USB Online Information Session
in Mauritius

  • 05 SEP 2018

We invite you to discover our MBA and Futures Studies programmes at this interactive Online Information Session.

Join us for this Online Information Session, otherwise known as a Webinar, where Prof Marlize Terblanche-Smit, Associate Professor in marketing communication, branding and consumer behaviour at the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB), will discuss what you can expect when you do your MBA with us.

Our MBA has been designed to turn managers, professionals, specialists and entrepreneurs into responsible leaders, expert decision makers, effective communicators and stewards of society. All MBA students also need to do the compulsory International Study Module to enhance their international exposure.

Our MBA is offered in three formats: Full-time, Modular and Blended Learning. The Blended Learning MBA over two years is ideal if you want to implement your newly acquired skills at work right from the start, because you attend one on-campus study block at the start and two on-campus blocks during the second year. In between, you attend weekly classes online (or on campus – your choice!). This format offers increased flexibility as it requires the minimum leave from work. It also lowers the opportunity cost to do your MBA at USB as it reduces travel costs.

Prof Terblanche-Smit will be joined by Doris Viljoen, a USB alumnus who completed her Future Studies programmes, where she will share her USB journey and experiences with you. A programme in Futures Studies will help you to develop innovative and long-range decision-making skills to mitigate risks and to identify opportunities.

During the session you will also have the opportunity to ask them questions.

17:00 – 18:00 (GMT +02:00; CAT)
19:00 – 20:00 MUT
Cost: Free
