Masters in Business Administration

Programme Description

Two-year (Full-Time) MBA

The uniqueness of the MBA programme that is being offered by SBPPSE is that elements of public policy and social entrepreneurship are integrated into the programme as core courses and electives with the possibility for a student to specialise in any of these areas in addition to the functional areas of management. Moreover, at the end of completing the two-year programme it is hoped that at least a small percentage of graduates will be choosing to start their own enterprises, especially in the social sector.

The curriculum of the two-year (full time) MBA programme has an innovative course structure incorporating the latest developments in management education.  The uniqueness of this programme is based on its approach to business and profit within a holistic context of the wider society and economy.  The curriculum is designed with the hope that it will bring about a radical change in the way students think, act, and perceive the world around them.
