UJ Business School

The Johannesburg Business School is committed to providing relevant, practical knowledge and skills. At JBS, students will experience an innovative teaching style geared to the complex environment of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), which at the same time remains authentically African.

We offer a range of Academic Programmes, including a Post Graduate Diploma, MBA (both part-time and online), and a DPhil, which are designed to provide students with relevant skills, knowledge and critical thinking capabilities suited to the challenges introduced by the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). The emphasis is on practical and useable knowledge that will have a direct benefit to the student’s business or organisation.

Our Executive Programmes, Customised Programmes and Masterclasses offer knowledge for a digitally transformed world and allow participants to develop integrative critical thinking across various disciplines, to build an understanding of global business developments and complexity.

JBS offers a progressive range of programmes to further 4IR in business, in partnership with our international associates, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), The Woxsen School of Business in India, University of California Berkley, the Higher Institute of Science and Technology of Mozambique (ISCTEM), and China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) in Shanghai.

The JBS Centre for Entrepreneurship (JBSCE) provides integrated entrepreneurial development support aimed at building the culture of entrepreneurship, developing start-ups and existing businesses for increased participation in the economy.

The JBS Centre for African Business (CAB) develops and publishes teaching case studies focused on African companies, runs webinars, and short courses linked to its research outputs, and is geared towards driving the Pan-African agenda and strategy of the JBS.
