The Faculty occupies three buildings on the main (Stellenbosch) campus, while the postgraduate programmes of the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) and the School of Public Leadership (SPL) are offered at the Bellville Park Campus.
Our training for professional registration in specialist fields such as Accounting, Actuarial Science and Financial Planning enjoys national and international accreditation by professional institutes and our students' performance in external examinations is proof of the quality of our programmes. In a similar vein our programmes in Industrial Psychology and Human Resource Management are acknowledged by professional bodies. In other disciplines, excellent quality of tuition is ensured by cooperation agreements; these cover matters such as the exchange of students and teaching staff, and joint research projects with internationally recognised academic institutions.
For the past years, the Faculty has been strengthening and diversifying its postgraduate platform. Contributing to this is the postgraduate school in Economic and Management Sciences. The school offers researchers from Africa and the rest of the world a full-time bursary programme to enable them to complete their doctoral studies in three years.
Most postgraduate students study at the School of Public Leadership, the USB and the School of Accountancy. USB was the first school from an African university to acquire all three international accreditations for business schools, namely AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA.
The Faculty vigorously pursues research excellence and capacity development. We are therefore very proud of our NRF-rated researchers and the Research Chairs hosted by the Faculty.
