Wits global MBA status under threat

Cape Town - The Wits Business School (WBS) could be stripped of its internationally recognised accreditation for its (MBA) degree, according to the Financial Mail.

WBS has featured among the top business schools globally and has also broadened its subject base, but low student numbers are threatening the internationally recognised degree because the school has only 14 candidates this year.

According to the Association of MBAs (Amba) - which accredited the school’s MBA - there must be a minimum of 20 students per programme.

This year the WBS was incorporated into the university’s central enrolment system.

"I have no doubt this has had a negative effect on enrolments here,” WBS director Wendy Ngoma was quoted as saying.

Ngoma said she has compiled a report for Wits university vice-chancellor Adam Habib, outlining some of the challenges the WBS is faced with under the new dispensation.

Amba is not likely take any action against the school until after a year, the agency reported.
