The MCom degree is an intellectually stimulating and rewarding, research-based, postgraduate programme. The primary purpose of the programme is to educate and train researchers who can contribute to the development of knowledge.

Through producing a dissertation under supervision, MCom students must be able to reflect critically on theory and its application in practice by accurately framing problems, asking interesting and important questions, as well as formulating appropriate strategies for investigating these questions.

The programme is also designed to equip students with the ability to conduct, evaluate and communicate outcomes of research, with a high degree of competence.



The programme allows for articulation to the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree offered by MANCOSA as well as a Doctor of Commerce (DCom) degree, a Doctor of Philosophy degree, or other cognate NQF level 10 doctoral degree, offered both locally and internationally.
