Process of Discovery & Knowledge Generation.

The Master of Business Administration is a postgraduate programme that blends academic and professional knowledge, where learners are exposed to cutting-edge research and process of discovery and knowledge generation. The programme offers an international perspective for professionals to engage effectively in a global environment, as well as networking opportunities.

Offered in collaboration with the Institute of Enterprise Risk Practitioners (IERP®), the MBA is a postgraduate qualification that focuses on Enterprise Risk Management.

Risk occurs in all areas of day-to-day life but its effective management is increasingly important in the complex, fast-paced world of business. Risk management is a key business discipline. It supports the requirements of corporate governance, enhances corporate strategy, and adds significant value to any organisation’s performance. A good risk manager reduces the negative impact of risks, while identifying and maximising any potential opportunities that arises.

The affiliation with the IERP® ensures that the Enterprise Risk Management specialism curriculum focuses on practical and holistic aspects of enterprise risk management. The MBA also offers graduates exemptions from the IERP®’s Enterprise Risk Manager Professional Certification for all relevant subjects undertaken during the programme, as well as participation as a student/associate member at the IERP at a nominal fee.

This programme is best suited to undergraduate students wishing to pursue higher education or work practitioners wanting to enhance their qualification or knowledge. Graduates will be well prepared for any professional positions in any organisation / industry nationally, regionally, or internationally.
