Stellenbosch Business School MBA information session in George

The University of Stellenbosch is presenting an Information Session Thursday, 1 December at Protea Hotel by Marriott® George King George, George, about its MBA and other programmes for 2017. Fast track your career with an MBA from a triple accredited internationally recognised business school.

Martin Butler the Head of the MBA Programme at University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) says that ‘In future successful managers will need high level of “digital quotient” (DQ)’

“The value of EQ to complement the IQ of managers is being widely recognised as a means to contribute towards an organisation’s success.”

“But in future the successful manager will also need a high level of “digital quotient” (DQ),” he says. Butler is an expert in information systems management and technology futures.

“It is important to enable MBA students to succeed in a work environment pervasive with technology and with access to large sets of ever-changing data that requires appropriate decision making amidst growing complexity,” he adds.

Butler says for this reason the USB has redesigned its MBA curriculum to equip students to manage their “digital environment”, adding that a new subject, Digital Enterprise Management, has been included as part of the core MBA programme.

“This is an exciting time to be delivering a world-class MBA, including launching a new Blended Learning Modular MBA in 2017, using USB’s pioneering synchronous virtual learning ‘glocal’ classroom,” says Butler.

The new delivery mode allows a greater number of students to engage with lecturers and other students that is attracted to the USB from across the world. In the process, says Butler, “management challenges in our country, on the continent and beyond, can be discussed, debated and addressed”.
