Postgraduate programmes

Postgraduate programmes introduce increasing levels of specialisation into the major disciplines from the Honours to Master’s to Doctoral levels. As the Faculty is mainly a professional faculty, students tend to pursue degrees to the level required by the accrediting professional bodies, usually an Honours or a Master’s degree. The Faculty has introduced a number of new Master’s programmes by coursework in areas of specialisation where there is an increasing demand for skills in the market place. All Doctoral degrees are based purely on research although the attendance of a number of modules/seminars may be required as a prerequisite.
The Faculty strives to obtain as many postgraduate bursaries as possible. The Postgraduate Bursary Committee and the Academic coordinator in the faculty office identify bursary opportunities and builds relationships with institutions such as Gauteng Treasury, MassMart and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
Prospective students must consult the faculty yearbook and/or the departmental websites hyperlinked below for detailed brochures and more information on admission requirements of the programmes offered.
