GIBS is an institution that fosters entrepreneurship and has deep connections to Africa. The University of Pretoria's Business School was established in 2000 by Sir Donald Gordon, a prominent businessman and philanthropist. It evolved from a business school for business under the leadership of Professor Nick Binedell to become a top-ranked institution in Africa and a research centre under the former Dean Professor Nicola Kleyn.
Long regarded as a top business school, GIBS, under the leadership of Professor Morris Mthombeni, is now leading the charge among its global peers. This is due to a progressive focus and commitment to quality blended learning, along with meaningful experiential exposure.
Our approach is based on our commitment to lifelong learning, innovative teaching methods and ethical business practices. Access to international and local faculty means that your GIBS experience will be relevant globally and open doors to valuable global networks.
