Unisa MBA Application 2024/2025: Unisa MBA requirements

Applications open on 5 August and close on 30 November for the 2024 intake.

An MBA is considered by many to be a ticket to C-suite. After all, you’d be hard-pressed to find an executive who isn’t. More than anything, an MBA is structured to transform a manager into a well-rounded leader capable of leading an organization and its employees toward success. The MBA gives you access to continue your studies towards the DBL, as long as you meet the DBL’s admission requirements.

Admission requirements and supporting documents

  • A Bachelor’s degree or any equivalent (provide a clear copy of the certificate as well as a transcript indicating the symbol or percentage obtained for each module and indicating that the qualification was completed)
  • A Bachelor’s Honours Degree or a Postgraduate Diploma (minimum 120 credits), or a 480-credit Bachelor’s Degree (provide a clear copy of the degree as well as a transcript indicating the symbol or percentage obtained for each module and indicating that the qualification was completed)
  • Original documentary proof of at least three years of managerial/ professional work experience (eg a letter from your employer on official letterhead), indicating your period of service or a certificate of service.  If you operate your own business, the statement can be made by your auditor, accountant, attorney, or partner
