Why study an IIE MBA?

This IIE Master of Business Administration programme is designed to provide a high level of theoretical engagement, intellectual independence and the ability to resolve complex business problems in an innovative way. The IIE MBA prepares working professionals to lead their organisations or departments, to understand universal business problems and challenges in the South African and global context and to apply best practices and appropriate management styles.

Some of the current challenges facing business leaders include learning to think creatively and finding innovative solutions to problems. We understand that an MBA should be more than just an academic experience, so instead of doing a theoretical dissertation all students will participate in a unique “Innovation Project” which involves practical research and finding strategic, innovative solutions.

Students are typically working in a variety of different fields. They wish to obtain knowledge and skills in functional business areas such as people management, finance, marketing, economic decision-making, innovation and creativity, entrepreneurship, project management and business strategy in a dynamic era.

The IIE MBA is taught by seasoned academics and industry experts with extensive leadership backgrounds in national and international business environments.
