The collaboration between these two prominent institutions and the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) aims to develop a standardised national Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Management Development Programme (MDP). The programme gives impetus to the institutionalisation of B-BBEE within the economic system, and seeks to professionalise the current B-BBEE industry.


Who should enrol for the programme?

This short course learning programme equips middle-level managers with informative ways of becoming team players and achieving their goals within their relevant organisations. The course is designed to facilitate an understanding of and the ability to integrate and apply the key competencies required for each of the functional areas of business.

The dti's goal behind creating this programme is also to develop a national standardised knowledge base that capacitates the entire B-BBEE industry, which includes B-BBEE Consultants, B-BBEE Verifiers, Private and Public Sector Practitioners.

What does the programme entail?

The course format is offered over two tracks, with the duration and cost of the programme dependent on the track that the participant qualifies for:

  1. The fast track programme runs over a period of three months, with students expected to attend five contact days at the University
  2. The normal track programme runs over eight months, with students expected to attend eight contact days at the University. Participants on this track may not necessarily meet the requirements for the fast track programme, but are given the additional time and support to complete the various topics for assessment.
