December, 2004

On 20 May 2004, the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) of the Council of Higher Education released results of its Master in Business Administration review. Higher education institutions that were granted conditional accreditation were requested to provide the HEQC with improvement plans indicating how they had met their conditions of accreditation. Peer review panels were then appointed and have completed site visits to three institutions that were initially granted conditional accreditation and subsequently submitted improvement plans.

Taking into account the improvement plans and the reports of the panels, the HEQC Board has granted full-accreditation to the following MBA programmes:

Rhodes University(Grahamstown site of delivery)

  • MBA

University of the Free State(Bloemfontein site of delivery)

  • MBA (General)

Management College of Southern Africa (MANCOSA)(Durban site of delivery)

  1. MBA (General)
  2. MBA Tourism Management & Development:

North West University (Vaal Triangle site of delivery: Contact mode)

This increases the number of fully accredited MBA programmes from nine to 14, at 12 higher education institutions.

The HEQC has received improvement plans from the remaining six institutions, which also received conditional accreditation for their MBA programmes. Site visits will be scheduled depending on the institutions' level of compliance with their conditions of accreditation.

Attached is the list of fully accredited and conditionally accredited MBA programmes.
