Principal’s Message

MANCOSA sets a high standard for its programmes and high expectations for its participants. In the next few years you will be rewarded with an experience unparalleled in supported distance-learning education.

For more than a quarter of a century, MANCOSA has consistently provided quality education that is responsive to the educational and economic challenges of our time as well as those of the future. In the words of the MANCOSA founder and former Principal, the late Professor Yusuf Karodia:

“Students will be immersed in an active education that will challenge their assumptions, interrogate their ways of conducting business and introduce them to innovative and unexpected ways of thinking. You will be prepared for the next step in your career and life, demonstrating leadership skills among your peers. Most importantly, you will return to your organisation with fresh ideas, new business skills and a greater capacity for addressing the challenges within your organisation.”

MANCOSA programmes promote high levels of independence through innovative learning and assessment interventions. You can expect a carefully integrated mix of webinars; access to well-
designed self-study materials and online learning resources.

One of the most distinctive features of MANCOSA is its use of case studies. This active learning model teaches students how to assess, analyse and deal with complex business situations. Rooted in real-life experiences, the business case method develops analytical skills, sound judgement and the leadership potential within each student. This will equip you with cutting-edge skills that will position you to be a leader in your organisation and community.

Honoris United Universities joins the expertise of its member institutions to create pan-regional profile graduates that are competitive in today’s fast-paced and demanding labour markets.
Our dynamic economies require business leadership skills across national boundaries that reflect many cultures and interests. We deliberately structure our programmes to assure a vibrant mix of students representing diverse cultures, industries, and geographic regions. This stimulating melting pot of backgrounds, cultures, career interests and business responsibilities will allow for unique learning and networking opportunities.

You will find rewards with lasting impact for your organisation and career.

We wish you well in your academic endeavours and assure you of our continued support towards realising your goals.
