Strategic Plan

The WBS strategic plan is firmly rooted in the belief that the school can play a significant role in Africa as the continent undergoes economic regeneration and unprecedented expansion.

It recognises that tomorrow’s African leaders will need a different leadership toolbox and skillset. This requires reimagining graduate business education and graduating leaders with the capacity to grow and achieve beyond themselves.

Our portfolio of programmes is built on four pillars of excellence – academic, research, leadership and character – to prepare leaders to excel in delivering business results, social responsibility results and public leadership.

The strategy envisages that by 2020, WBS will be recognised as the most admired business school in Africa by the world’s leading business publications, have the most diverse pool of applicants of any business school on the continent, be recognised as one of the top 50 research-based business school in the world and be at the centre of critical discourse about the economic, social and public policy future of Africa.
