The MBA is by far and away the most successful degree of the 20th century. Look at the American statistics. The first degree was not given out until the 1900’s. By the end of the 20th century it had a 27% market share of all graduate degrees given out.

A 1-year MBA (Master of Business Administration) allows students to complete the coursework required for an MBA in a shorter amount of time. Classes may include finance, accounting, business operation, management, human resources, and ethics.

USB’s NEW 1-year professional MBA USB’s MBA has been redesigned to better fulfil the needs of today’s students. The previous (longer) MBA, presented up till 2015, has now been restructured into a 213-credit programme on NQF Level 9. All formats of the USB MBA have been shortened and this takes effect from 2016. Important: You must now have a 4-year Bachelor’s degree or an Honour’s degree or a 3-year Bachelor’s degree plus a Postgraduate Diploma before you are allowed entry into the new MBA. USB’s new Full-time MBA in a nutshell Duration: 1 year (2 years in the past) Contents: 18 compulsory modules (including International Study Module at foreign business school and Research Assignment) and electives Why choose USB's Full-time MBA? If you want to operate at senior management level and lead with confidence, USB's triple accredited MBA will prepare you for this. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider our Full-time MBA: 3 international accreditations: AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA Increased international exposure: In the Full-time MBA class, you will be joined by international students and exchange students from all over the world, allowing you to learn from their work experiences and cultural backgrounds. All MBA students also have to attend a compulsory International Study Module at a foreign business school (cost of module included in MBA fees) Single-minded focus: Immerse yourself in your studies (11 months of classes) without the demands of a job Preparation for a career change: Take a break from full-time employment and prepare yourself for a new career Contact with business environment: Make the most of speaker and networking events in class and on campus to meet business leaders and industry experts. Structure and content USB’s MBA is structured into 18 compulsory modules and a choice of electives. The compulsory modules include the Research Assignment, which spans the entire MBA, and the International Study Module at a foreign business school. THE COMPULSORY MBA MODULES Accounting for Decision-Making (8 credits) Business Communication Skills (4 credits) Business in Society (8 credits) Contemporary Decision-Making (12 credits) Corporate Finance (12 credits) Digital Enterprise Management (8 credits) Economics for Managers (8 credits) Human Capital Management (8 credits) Integrated Case Studies (8 credits) International Study Module (8 credits) Operational Excellence (8 credits) Perspectives on African Frontiers (8 credits) Managerial Accounting (8 credits) Managerial Statistics (8 credits) Research Methodology and Assignment (45 credits) Strategic Management (12 credits) Strategic Marketing and Branding (8 credits) Values-Based Leadership (16 credits) ELECTIVES You need to select two electives of 8 credits each, or one elective of 16 credits. The electives have been grouped together in specialisation streams. By choosing electives from the same speciality, students can acquire areas of expertise in Strategy, Leadership, Finance, Marketing, Developing Markets, Project Management or other management areas. The structure and content of the Full-time course is identical to that of the Modular programme, but the course is completed over a shorter period of time. The compulsory International Study Module (one week) at a foreign business school (various options) usually takes place during the June-July holiday break. Full-time MBA timetables for 2016 Term 1: 13 January – 18 March Term 2: 5 April – 24 June Term 3: 18 July – 30 September Term 4: 10 October – 12 November Deadline for applications South African students: 30 November each year Foreign students from (visa-exempt) SADC countries: 30 October each year Foreign students from other African countries and rest of world: 30 September each year Important Study permits for foreign students at USB: Obtaining a study permit (study visa) from the South African authorities takes up to 12 weeks from the date of being offered a place on a programme at USB – hence the early application deadline for foreign students. Multiple-entry visas: Students from non-SADC African countries and other countries with visa requirements who need to apply for study visas can obtain a letter from USB confirming the duration of registration at USB. This will help students to obtain multiple-entry study visas in case of modular studies. Timetable changes: USB reserves the right to change dates of the lecture schedule or subjects per term table. Students will be informed of any changes in good time. Late applications: USB will do everything possible to accommodate applications submitted after the closing date. [-]
