Statement from the Director
We are one of the most established and comprehensive providers of business and management education in Zimbabwe. We have nurtured leaders from Zimbabwe and the region, employing innovative pedagogy that melds rigorous academic theory with real world business practice, ensuring that our graduates thrive and succeed in today’s increasingly dynamic and interconnected world. Our academic excellence and industry relevance is well recognised globally by independent publications and organizations as proven by our accreditation to the Association of African Business Schools (AABS).
To achieve sustainable success, managers need an expanded skill set that creates new models of business. We see our role as enablers of these new ways of thinking and behaving. We do not believe in taking for granted assumptions and practices but endeavour to cultivate in managers an ability to draw from a full spectrum of disciplines and cultures.
We also understand that emerging economy business is confronted by a high degree of uncertainty, complexity, and often excessive situations of inequality. Such a world needs innovative solutions. We are therefore focusing our energies on becoming a leading business school in the paradigm of the emerging economy, both in our research and our teaching. Through this concerted effort, the GSBL aims to both raise the profile and provide students, both local and regional/international with the knowledge and skills to take on the challenges of this, the emerging market decade.
GSBL programmes enable the development of managers and leaders at all levels. The School offers two core academic programmes MBA and the Executive MBA and a range of Executive Education short courses that cater for generalist and professional development needs. In addition, the Executive Education unit provides accredited academic learning or professional development programmes that can be tailored to the needs of specific clients.
If you want to make a difference in business and society and you feel that this needs a more values-based, sustainable approach, then MSU Graduate School of Business Leadership is the right place for you.
We look forward to welcoming you on a transformational journey to professionalism.

Director of the GSBL
