REGENT Business School join forces with Université Centrale and Université Mundiapolis to offer its Global Pan African MBA programme via distance learning in North Africa
December 12, 2017, London: Honoris United Universities, the first private pan-African higher education network, today announced that its network institutions from Southern and North Africa have formed a partnership to offer a Global Pan-African MBA programme through distance learning to students in the Maghreb region.
As part of this partnership, Regent Business School, which is one of South Africa’s leading private distance learning institutions will launch its distance-learning MBA in North Africa through the Honoris United Universities network institutions that include Université Centrale Group in Tunisia and Université Mundiapolis in Morocco. The former is a leading post-secondary education group in Tunisia whilst Université Mundiapolis in Morocco is renowned for its international approach and focus on employability.
Commenting on the launch of this new programme, Luis Lopez, Ceo of Honoris United Universities, stated, “I am delighted to launch this exciting initiative that supports the concept of collaborative intelligence, cultural agility, mobile mindset which are at the heart of Honoris’ vision of higher education. This Pan-African association between our Northern and Southern African institutions – Mundiapolis and Université Centrale – and REGENT Business School – illustrates our commitment to create pan-regional profile graduates with cross-border academic and work experience to be competitive in today’s fast-paced and demanding labor markets”.
The Global Pan-African MBA is aimed at contributing to enhancing leadership and management skills whilst developing the socio-economic environment of the African continent. The core curriculum of the MBA programme primarily deals with generic global business and management issues. It is unique in the sense that all core courses are embedded with reading material and case studies that are Africa-centric. In addition, global problems and challenges such as Sustainability, Governance, Political Economy and Ethics are included in the core curriculum. The MBA programme will also offer electives in Islamic Banking, Health Care Management, Doing Business in Africa, Emerging Markets and the Digital Economy.
The MBA has been benchmarked with many international institutions’ programmes, including business schools in Africa. This standard enables students with sufficient and relevant work experience and appropriate qualifications to further develop their functional and reflective competencies in business management and administration. The MBA will also enable students in the private and the public sectors to develop in-depth, advanced discipline-specific skills and applied competencies that will provide them with opportunities for personal intellectual growth, more purposeful employment, and the ability to make a meaningful contribution to society.
