Change the world

Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences

Welcome to the Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences. As the name suggests, the Faculty combines and integrates two main foci, namely a focus on engagement with and service to the Business Community and a focus on the Economic Sciences

As part of a university we are fully committed to our engagement with Science, but at the same time we also understand that, as a public institution, we have a special role to play within the community. We believe that the effective integration of these two foci not only adds value to the broader community, but also adds a differentiating value to our graduates and our faculty.

Our faculty’s special character is further derived from the fact that the Nelson Mandela University is one of the few really comprehensive universities, not only in South Africa, but in the world. This means that we offer a wide range of business-related study opportunities that vary from general formative programmes to programmes with a strong career orientation. This inclusive programme mix does not only allow students a wide choice, but also the opportunity to articulate between programmes while retaining credits – all of this within the same institution. At the same time we offer programmes over the full qualification spectrum, from undergraduate diplomas to doctoral degrees. This website is a user-friendly tool to explore our vast range of programmes.

The Faculty has an excellent human resources and physical infrastructure. This infrastructure, combined with our commitment to customer service, makes us a world-class institution.

An institution of Higher Education in general, but specifically a Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences, has to be part of the global community. We actively promote our international engagement and relevance through a wide and expanding range of initiatives that include student and staff exchanges, international accreditation and recognition of programmes and joint research initiatives.
