The South African Business School Association (Sabsa) will hold its sixth yearly Business School expo later this month, showcasing the country’s 18 Masters of Business Administration- (MBA-) accredited business schools.

Sabsa president Professor Helena van Zyl said the MBA has become a sought after qualification and is equipping a new generation of managers, executives and entrepreneurs with the tools necessary to compete with their international counterparts.

“In the current competitive business arena, leaders and organisations need exposure to global benchmarks, new knowledge, improved leadership and managerial skills. This cannot be achieved through work experience alone and the MBA is a well-respected qualification for managers, executives and entrepreneurs aspiring to get ahead,” she added.

Van Zyl believed a culture of lifelong learning was critical to both individual and business success and the MBA provided a holistic view of management, as well as a platform to develop an individual’s leadership and managerial skills. She added that companies were looking at how well graduates could integrate all the facets of management.

The Business School expo presents the many career- and business-related initiatives and executive education programmes that are available at the various business schools. It will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre, in Sandton, north of Johannesburg, on August 25.
