GIBS Formal Academic Programme
As a tuition centre of GIBS, TWIMS offers the GIBS PGDip and MBA (manufacturing specialisation), with both courses taught on an extended block release programme by GIBS faculty.
Best of Both Worlds
GIBS, in partnership with TWIMS, has developed a range of manufacturing specific courses for its MBA (manufacturing specialisation). These include Future Manufacturing, Green Manufacturing, Lean Operations Management, Lean Supply Chain management, and African Trade and Industrialisation.
GIBS PGDip [Manufacturing Specialisation]
This offering resonates with managers who are self-driven and highly motivated and who are looking to gain a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of business in a manufacturing context. It is for individuals who do not only want to become more effective managers, but also have the aspiration to progress onto the GIBS MBA programme.
GIBS MBA [Manufacturing Specialisation]
The manufacturing focused MBA is an academically rigorous degree that will enable you to identify, assess and interpret a business problem within a specific manufacturing context and propose relevant, effective and ethical solutions. The program is completed in 18 months of part time study in a format that allows you to minimise time away from the office.
Manufacturing Ambassador Scholarship
TWIMS is acutely aware of the complex operating environment facing South African based manufacturers and acknowledges that many deserving individuals are unable to pursue the GIBS MBA (manufacturing focus) due to financial constraints. In response to this challenge, TWIMS is honoured to announce that it is now able to offer such individuals the opportunity to apply for the Manufacturing Ambassador Scholarship. As the result of a generous endowment from the Toyota South Africa Educational Trust, TWIMS will be able to fund up to 20 Manufacturing Ambassador scholarships annually from 2021. The scholarships will cover up to 70% of student tuition and global module expenses; and all residency costs at TWIMS during block release and exam periods.
