A dynamic addition to the spectrum of management programmes on offer is the  Bachelor of Management Leadership (BML) aimed at working adult learners.  This qualification is based on experiential learning and the assessment and recognition of prior learning.  The objective of the BML is to deliver a new generation of formally qualified and innovative managerial leaders equipped to excel in and add value to today's corporate and business environment.

The BML programme was developed in collaboration with the School for New Learning at De Paul University in Chicago.


Next intake is July 2018

Admission tests must be written by all applicants. A review committee will consider all applications and a policy of limited enrollment will be applicable.  Selection test dates will be communicated.

The test battery assesses learning potential, as well as verbal and numeracy skills and specific 'competencies' that was identified in order to pass the BML programme successfully. No preparation needed.
