USB is recognised as a top school in the international business school network. It was the first school from an African university to receive all three international accreditations: AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. The University of Stellenbosch Business School, located in the Tyger Valley business district in the northern part of Cape Town, offers a wide range of internationally accredited management and leadership programmes. Over and above the flagship MBA, programmes in Development Finance, Leadership Development, Management Coaching, Futures Studies and Project Management are offered.

The joint MBA stream benefits from UNSSC’s strong experience in innovative leadership and management development and network of senior UN leaders contributing to the delivery of the modules and serving as research supervisors.
