SPL (School of Public Leadership)
Welcome to Stellenbosch University



Executive Short Courses

To overcome the many contemporary challenges facing public service delivery, a high degree of management sophistication is required within an organisation.

The executive short course programmes and products of the School of Public Leadership are the result of knowledge gained from rigorous research on contemporary issues and international best practices. All facilitators / researchers are permanent or extraordinary academic appointees of Stellenbosch University, and all courses are fully quality controlled and accredited as determined by the University and the Higher Education Qualification Committee.​​​​

Our products are the only sector-specific accredited products of Stellenbosch University with articulation to advanced degrees in public and development management. They provide access to, or credit for modules of the advanced degrees. Our stand-alone courses are either accredited modules or part of modules of our various formal programmes. We also offer a range of general public management as well as sector-specific management development programmes.​​​​​​
