Top Masters Degrees in Management in Africa 2017

Management

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Management studies can prepare students for a management position in a variety of organizations, including the government. Many programs allow students to specialize in an area of their choosing, such as finance, marketing, economics or accounting.

Can any other region can match the variety and dimension of Africa? With imitable history, landscape and cultural contributions, hardly any regions offer a study abroad encounter that is more challenging or more satisfying in terms of studying.

A word from the Academic Director "Being SMIB is not only a label that you get when joining the academic programme. It is a real mindset, attitude and way of living that will stick to you all along the years. I can assert this, not only as the appointed Academic Director of the programme, but also as a former SMIB myself. This would be the summary of this SMIB-spirit: business-oriented, open-minded, bold and authentic. Being open-minded is not an advertising catch phrase for the SMIB programme. We really live diversity in our daily life: when on campus, through the various nationalities represented in the programme; when on business trips; when at work, through the many chosen expatriation paths that SMIBs are in… So how do we do it? Simply because our focus is on excellence, in whatever we do. And to be excellent, one needs emotional, cultural, theoretical and practical intelligence. So if you are not fully convinced, read on!"
