We aim to deliver leaders who can shape the future of Africa
Wits Business School is the graduate school of business administration of the University of the Witwatersrand, one of the top tertiary institutes in Africa.
The School offers a variety of postgraduate academic programmes and executive education programmes as well as weekly public seminars. WBS also designs tailor-made, in-company programmes, partnering with client organisations to develop management capacity. With a full suite of programmes on offer, WBS delivers innovative, transformative, and immersive learning experiences using generative thinking methodologies.
The School’s aim is to deliver leaders who can fashion the future of Africa and raise the values-bar on how business is done on the continent. Learning is therefore relevant to the challenges and opportunities that we face on this continent, providing students with a deep understanding of the complexities of doing business in Africa within a global context.
Our academic faculty comprises highly qualified academics with almost all of them holding PhDs, more than any other business school on the continent.
WBS has an extensive Management Library, 24-hour meeting rooms. The WBS case centre is still the largest case centre in Africa, housing over 300 real-life cases that bring relevant business challenges into the classroom.
The main campus is in Parktown in central Johannesburg, the vibrant, commercial hub of the continent. The campus offers a modern learning environment modelled around the Harvard School of Business classroom design – the classic ‘horseshoe’ format – which encourages maximum student-teacher engagement.
