Business Management, Entrepreneurship and New Technologies




This short course is especially adapted to those students who dream of opening up their own business one day and who want to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Students also understand the impact of new technology on our world and the power of exponential growth. Students will be able to learn and gain exposure to valuable material in lectures and to apply it in a business or non- profit organization once graduated.


Throughout the course, students are encouraged to build plans on how they see challenges, at local or regional level, and what needs to transpire in order for these challenges to be addressed and solved. Students who come up with a business plan and opt to open up their own business will join either a Tier 1 or Tier 2 business support system and mentorship programme. Students who fall within Tier 1 will be appointed a Board of Directors who themselves are successful directors from existing South African companies. Students will be appointed Directors of their own company, and the appointed Board of Directors will actively guide the student, or students, and the newly formed company so that it can commercially develop. Tier 2 students will receive business mentorship until such time that the newly formed idea has matured into a firm business plan ready for funding. This course will educate and empower students to learn and apply entrepreneurial skills and new technologies in order to address company and societal needs and challenges. The course equips students with the skills to effectively communicate with scientists, engineers and business leaders, whilst themselves not needing to understand the depths of content of those disciplines.


The course also covers creative and critical thinking as well as emotional and social intelligence introducing students to a wider range of relevant topics and subjects that impact on day to day inter-personal interaction. Finally, students will be exposed to guest lecturers from relevant external companies and organizations.


We partnered with leading international universities to deliver specialized and focused content. They include:
