At GIBS, you are assured of a business school experience that embraces technology and disruption while, at all times, finding ways to humanise and connect to the new digital world of work.
As an entrepreneurial institution with deep connections to the African continent, GIBS has changed dramatically since its founding in 2000. Established on the back of a significant endowment by businessman and philanthropist Sir Donald Gordon, the University of Pretoria’s business school has evolved from being a business school for business, under founding Dean Professor Nick Binedell, into a world-class African institution and research centre, under former Dean Professor Nicola Kleyn.
Long regarded as a business school with impeccable international credentials, GIBS is now leading the way among its global peer's thanks to a progressive focus on quality blended learning coupled with a commitment to meaningful experiential exposure.
Underpinning our approach is our commitment to life-long learning, a dedication to high-quality and innovative teaching methods, the pursuit of ethical and sustainable values, and a forward-looking view of business and its role in the world. Access to local and international faculty ensures that your GIBS experience is globally relevant and opens doors to prized global networks.
