GSB new initiative for global students

UCT's Graduate School of Business (GSB) has launched a new initiative that will see MBA students and graduates from around the globe visit the school for a term of study. As part of the new Study Abroad initiative, visiting students will spend three months on the MBA programme, obtaining credits that are transferable to their own institution.

Elspeth Donovan, director of the MBA programme, said the Study Abroad initiative would give international MBA graduates and students a valuable opportunity to visit Cape Town and tap into the school's emerging-market expertise.

Pat Boulton, administrator at the GSB's central admissions, said the initiative was born from the interest in the school from students and graduates at international MBA fairs.

"We already have the first handful of these international students signed up for the initiative's first term."

The Study Abroad initiative will run in tandem with the GSB's existing exchange programmes, which operate on exchange agreements between the GSB and it's partner business schools around the globe.

Students typically go on exchange after they have completed their course work and do not obtain credits for courses they take while on exchange.
