Rhodes Business School

Introduction

Leadership for Sustainability

Welcome to the South African business school that takes sustainability issues seriously. Thank you for visiting our website. We trust that you will find interest in what we do in the business education arena, as well as in how we do it. Sustainability embodies two main ideas. Firstly there is the idea of “business continuity” and organizational longevity, and secondly, there is the idea of “sustainable development”. Both ideas are tied up with the concern of “meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs”. In all its courses, both short courses and the MBA, Rhodes Business School emphasizes the balance which needs to be placed on the social, environmental and economic performance of organizations which is essential to their successful long-term performance. As a result of the concerns with global warming, for example, there is a risk that public policies and social movements will speed up the demands for companies and other organizations to operate in a more sustainable way. All organizations need to understand these imperatives, as well as to be empowered to respond practically and appropriately. The Rhodes Business School offerings aim to do this.

Post Graduate Diploma in Enterprise Management

There are two options for the PDEM. A full-time option and a part-time option.

Both options are based on the action-learning philosophy. Students on the programme will be expected to learn by doing and to develop conceptual understanding and practical skills through a process of simultaneous interaction. This means that programme differs somewhat from the typical university course.

The target group for the programme is normally postgraduate students from any faculty who have typically NOT majored in Management, Business Administration, Business Management or the equivalent (Although each application is judged on its own merit and context). The Rhodes Business School wishes to bring together a rich diversity of students from different educational backgrounds to create an entrepreneurial group which is representative of the South African people....
