Program description

Master of Business Administration

The IIE Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a professional degree providing a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual independence while developing the ability to resolve complex business problems in an innovative way. This MBA embraces a ‘use it now’ approach to the curriculum intended to enable students to apply all learnings immediately in their place of work.

The MBA prepares working professionals to lead their organisations or departments, to understand universal business problems and challenges in the South African and global context and to apply best practices and management styles.

Some of the current challenges facing business leaders include learning to think creatively and finding innovative solutions to problems. We understand that an MBA should be more than just an academic experience. Instead of doing a research dissertation all students participate in a unique “Innovation Research Project”, which involves practical research and finding strategic, innovative solutions.

The MBA is taught by seasoned academics and industry experts with extensive leadership backgrounds in national and international business environments.

Successful completion of this programme leads to an IIE qualification.

Career opportunities

The MBA degree is particularly relevant for those who wish to lead an organisation, to understand universal business challenges, to apply best practices and to solve complex problems in the private and public sector. MBA graduates also take jobs with small, medium and large organisations. They often become entrepreneurs by starting their own businesses. There are many job opportunities available in nearly every business industry imaginable.


Students can join any time during the year and enrol for the next module.


Classes are offered at our Ruimsig campus on the first, third and fifth Saturday of the five-week schedule per module.
