For those adventurous souls with a thirst for travel, if you’re thinking of completing a business degree abroad, South Africa may just be the place. MoneyWeb reports that the annual UK Financial Times Executive Education rankings listed the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) the top South African and African business school.
“This is a tremendous achievement for GIBS and clearly places us among the best business schools in the world,” GIBS’s dean Nick Binedell said.
“We live by our ethos of aiming to significantly improve the competitive performance of individuals and organisations through business education and this accolade will drive us to continue to improve our programmes even further in line with the ever changing economic landscape.”
The Financial Times’ survey has been ranking schools for 3 years. GIBS has been a top business school globally for nine years.
