“I joined MAP at the end of March 2016, from there on in my life changed for the better. It has been the most amazing year of my life because I got to interact with such diverse people.  The lecturers were phenomenal, every lecture just heightened my thirst for the immense knowledge they departed. The style of lecturing and the syndicate and individual  assignments given as part of the course, pushes you to your full potential! My experience at WITS Business School has definitely been an unforgettable one, our programme managers were always available and provided exceptional assistance and advice when required. Together with the lecturers and my class mates, they have given me the best post graduate experience I could have asked for”. - Bashni Naidoo, Head of Group BCM, Group Enablement – Professional Services, Liberty

"The MAP is a structured learning curriculum that seeks to afford managers across different industries with knowledge and skills required within the leadership and management terrain. The programme is delivered by quality lecturers and researchers who bring a wealth of knowledge that makes the classes interesting and vibrant."  - Matsobane Lebese, Gauteng Provincial Government

"Coming into MAP, I wanted to improve my business acumen—to learn more about strategy, marketing, and other topics. I expected to acquire a theoretical framework, but the program is so much more than that. Not only does it cover those business topics, I also learnt about a few formulas or concept – I have really grown as a person and a leader. It’s like belonging to a group of people that not only have passion and drive in their respectful careers but it’s also a family of learning.  I’ve met some amazing people and made meaningful connections that I am confident will be a part of not only my professional life but also my personal life in the future!" - Kgomotso Mosiane, Marketing Manager, Estee Lauder Companies, Sub-Saharan Africa
