At the EMS Faculty you will receive the best support and additional study resources online to help you graduate on time with a relevant and internationally recognised degree that carries an excellent reputation amongst the top corporate employers in South Africa and abroad. You will also have the opportunity to gain critical skills that will allow you to start your own business as an entrepreneur.
The Faculty offers a wide range of specialised degrees at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and focuses on three broad areas, namely financial sciences, economic sciences and management sciences – the cornerstones of global economies.
A number of our degrees are accredited by statutory and professional bodies at national and international level.
The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International awarded the EMS Faculty its prestigious international business education accreditation. EMS is now part of an elite group of 6% of institutions worldwide accredited by the AACSB. Established in 1916, the AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting learners, educators and businesses worldwide.
The Faculty’s AACSB accreditation is a significant achievement for the University, as EMS is the first faculty of its kind in South Africa and Africa to be accredited by the AACSB. In South Africa, only three business schools are accredited, including UP’s Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS). The EMS Faculty now joins a list of only nine AACSB-accredited institutions in Africa.
