We are back!

This past weekend our MBA students returned to campus bringing life back into our beautiful building. With the right safety measures in place we are excited to welcome you back with the first of our short courses taking place in August. 

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered. ” Nelson Mandela 

Executive Development Programme

After months of delay and uncertainty we are pleased to announce that the first two of our short courses will be run in august. Future of Manufacturing (18th-20th August) and Green Manufacturing (25th-27th August) will be run as 3 day courses on our Kloof campus.

Future of Manufacturing 
18th-20th August

The Future of Manufacturing course focuses on applying a range of strategic tools to interrogate and engage with potentially highly disruptive market, social and technology forces that are re-framing the manufacturing sector’s development trajectory. Over the course of the three days we explore the rapid rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial IoT, and the use of “big data” that will have major disruptive consequences for manufacturing and try answer some important questions. Are new business models likely to emerge? Is South African manufacturing closeted from these developments, or will changes occur domestically in the same manner as being observed internationally?

Green Manufacturing 
25th- 27th August

Climate change continues to be one of the biggest threats to humanity. As legislation moves to force companies to go green it is no longer a matter of if you will change but when you will have to change. The Green Manufacturing Executive Short Course considers the pertinent issues surrounding the green economy debate and why they are critical to the manufacturing sector. The course focuses on the different green discourses potentially shaping the development trajectory of manufacturing, while also providing an analysis of the key interventions and strategies that are relevant to green manufacturing.

MBA Open Evening 

Our applications for the MBA and the scholarship are open! We know that many of you have some burning questions and this is your opportunity to ask! 

On Wednesday the 8th of July at 6pm we will be hosting an online MBA open evening. Prof. Justin Barnes and Dr Lisa Kinnear will be discussing the MBA, why the manufacturing focus and the scholarship opportunity.

Registration for this event is necessary and you are welcome to join in from anywhere!

That is it for July. We are looking forward to having you back on campus!
