Choosing a business school is certainly one of the most important decisions, made even more difficult in our changing times where the world has lost its old equilibrium without having found new values.
The frontiers of the economy are reforming and in continuous evolution and work opportunities are emerging. In this brave new world tertiary institutions can no longer limit itself to provide textbook knowledge and mere academic preparation reducing itself to an 'exam house' attaching titles and empty labels, neither can it continue to ignore the changing needs of a global employment market and the profound changes in the environment awaiting the students beyond the campuses.
MANCOSA's mission is to prepare a new breed of leaders, courageous, sincere individuals with the intellectual abilities, cross cultural versatility, practical skills and ethics needed to operate in today's business world. With programmes designed to accommodate individuals with diverse needs and lifestyles, MANCOSA supported distance education programmes are in great demand with the rigour and innovation to create reflective practitioners. Participants are immersed in an active education that will challenge their assumptions, disrupt their ordinary ways of doing business, and introduce them to new and unexpected ways of thinking. By participating, you will be prepared for the next step in your career and life, demonstrating leadership skills among your peers.
