Why USB?

USB was the 1st school from an African university to receive all 3 international accreditations - AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. Together, the three accreditation bodies look at business schools from three different geographical and quality perspectives to give you an independent and world-benchmarked view of our programmes.

USB’s programmes are underpinned by a global perspective combined with unique African contextualisation. Our students regularly mention collaborative learning with fellow students from different industry backgrounds and geographies as one of the highlights of their learning journey.

The school is centrally located in the Tyger Valley business district in northern Cape Town.
