Alliances with international business schools
We build alliances with credible business schools throughout the world so that we can enrich the learning experience of our students through exchange programmes and other educational experiences. Our Executive Education arm has partnerships with the London Business School (UK), Cranfield School of Management (UK), Makerere University Business School (Uganda), Cass Business School (UK and Dubai) and IMMD (India, USA and Singapore). Our International Executive Development Programme, for example, takes place both at the Wits Business School and the London Business School, including visits to the business centres of Dubai and Shanghai.
International speakers, professors and academics
We have several visiting professors from international schools and our own professors and staff also visit and lecture at overseas universities. We host international guest speakers and almost half of our permanent academic staff are from outside South Africa. This international and African representation (not just among our staff, but also our students) adds valuable insights into commercial and socio-economic conditions across Africa and the globe.
