Studying towards a MANCOSA MBA is an important investment because it enables you to set ambitious personal goals, chart a rewarding career pathway and accomplish key milestones on the way to success. While doing all of this, you can make a lasting contribution to your organisation and society. The highly recognised MANCOSA MBA degree programme is benchmarked, internationally, for consistency and tailored, regionally, for contextual relevance. The programme equips students with a solid working knowledge and understanding of cutting-edge management systems, approaches, practices and decision-making tools for ensuring business success. Some of the critical management skills and abilities acquired are crafting and implementing strategy, re-engineering business management systems and processes, marketing the organisation in a competitive economic environment, making sound financial and business decisions, managing and measuring performance, communicating clearly and leading teams across different functional areas of the organisation. If you are seeking the flexibility of combining work with study, our supported distance-learning MBA offers you the perfect solution. It allows you to fit learning and development into your busy work and family lifestyle. MANCOSA has mastered the art of combining supported distance-learning with self-study, workshops, enrichment classes, case analysis, conceptual exercises, individual tutor and strong web-based support. This method encourages analysis and discussion of real business cases and contributes to deep learning. The use of internet technologies such as email and web-based support, brings the students and faculty together across any distance or cultural boundary.
