EduCatis offers students the opportunity to complete an Integrated Masters in Business Administration Degree (IMBA)
which combines the traditional 3 years of undergraduate study at Bachelor (graduate) level (Dip.Man
) and one academic year of Masters (post-graduate) study (PGDip.Man
plus MBA-Top-Up (Capita Selecta and Dissertation phase) into a 30 month academic cycle depending on the progress and commitment of the student. Students who have registered for the Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) and have completed the GDip.Man
(3rd academic year also have the option to proceed directly to the Integrated Masters in Business Administration (IMBA). EduCatis also offers the mature student who has successfully completed studies at Bachelor level with the opportunity to register for an Accelerated Masters in Business Administration Degree (AMBA)
resulting in an MBA at an UK/USA/Swiss or alternative government registered university or business school in approximately 12 – 18 months (depending on the commitment and progress of the individual student).
The Accelerated Masters in Business Administration (AMBA) Degree follows a generic curriculum prescribed by the UK-OFQUAL
Qualification Authority and is intended to provide an accelerated study pathway relevant to post-graduate students who have already completed a professional/speclialised degree at a registered university. The curriculum is made up of the following components: Diploma in Business Management (Dip.Man)
(BBA/MBA-Foundation Curriculum including SA/USA/UK curriculum orientation) (3-6 Months) (Online Assessment) (120 Credits); Post-Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDip.Man)
(ATHE Diploma in Strategic Management (Level 7 Ofqual Diploma) (9 Months) (120 Credits) followed by an MBA Top-Up Degree
(Capita Selecta and Dissertation at dedicated university/business school) (60 Credits) (3 Months) at an UK/USA/Swiss or alternative international university (Online or Residential) at a substantially discounted cost in comparison to South African or overseas universities. The generic nature of the programme is reflected by the inclusion of a general curriculum component comparable to curriculums taught at most USA universities/business schools as well as a localized curriculum component applicable to the specific geographical region where the student obtained his/her initial degree (in this case Southern Africa). This enables the student to qualify with a MBA aligned and accredited via the UK-Ofqual
university system while at the same time being prepared for both the local and wider international business and corporate environment (and further studies at higher academic level).
