Project management is universally accepted as a scarce skill, and proficient project managers are in high demand. It is therefore completely understandable that Fortune Magazine has identified project management as the number one career choice. To learn more, join the Project Management course at Stellenbosch University.


Companies are looking for professionals who are proficient in both project management fundamentals and key business disciplines such as strategy, finance, operations management and marketing. These highly skilled professionals offer a unique value proposition as they are able to bridge the understanding between the project management and business management elements of the entity. Traditionally, project management has been associated with the construction, engineering and energy sectors. Now, newer industries such as IT management, health care management, financial services and research also employ project managers.

At Stellenbosch Business School, you will also benefit from our association with the USA-based Project Management Institute’s South Africa Chapter. This gives you access to workshops, conferences, speaker events, research and collaboration, and outreach activities – all aimed at enriching your learning journey.

By honing your project leadership skills and project management skills on MBA level, you will help to create a strategic value chain that gives your company an edge on competitors.


Stellenbosch Business School’s MBA aims to develop you into a responsible leader, expert decision maker, strategic thinker, effective communicator and steward of society.

The Project Management course at Stellenbosch University is rigorous, as can be expected from a programme with three international accreditations. It balances solid quantitative modules with personal development and leadership skills. Management tools and techniques from disciplines such as strategic management, economics, operations, finance and marketing are important core competencies of the MBA graduate. This is balanced by competencies such as responsible leadership, communication and understanding the role of business in society in order to develop the skills of adaptability, flexibility, self-awareness and contextual awareness – all of which are in high demand in the business environment.

One of the key differentiators of our MBA is the Leadership Module which focuses on responsible leadership and allows you to develop your own authentic leadership style. The International Study Module at a foreign business school offers you a global perspective that supports the other elements of this course. Collaborative learning – where students learn from each other – is another key feature of our MBA. The unique knowledge from each student adds depth to collaborative learning.
