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.

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 lectures; 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.
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.
Established in 1996 in Cape Town, CityVarsity rapidly cemented itself as the go-to media and creative arts school in South Africa. In 2007 the demand for quality private tertiary media education led to us opening our Johannesburg campus.

With a strong emphasis on practical work across all media disciplines, our graduates walk out of our doors with a portfolio of relevant work.

Over the years, CityVarsity’s dominance at national awards ceremonies has demonstrated the distinctive edge that our students possess.

This highly successful strategy results in a perpetual awareness of the trends, needs and challenges within each sector of the industry. Annual industry indabas ensure a guidance system for syllabus structure, content and direction. These are just two ways in which our students are constantly in touch with the pulse of their chosen profession. Our students’ interaction with peers from other departments produces vital networking skills and opportunities which have led to many of them forming successful independent production companies after their studies.

Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) is the foremost higher education institution in the heartland of South Africa, dedicated to quality education and training in science, engineering and technology. CUT has developed into a leading institution able to take its place on the national, as well as international, higher education landscape.
CUT, then still known as the Technikon Free State, opened its doors in 1981 with 285 students enrolled in mainly secretarial, art and design programmes. With the restructuring of the higher education landscape a few years ago, CUT embraced its new status as a university of technology and thus positioned itself to succeed as such. On 26 March 2004 the former Technikon Free State officially exchanged its “technikon” status for a tailor-made identity when its new name was published in the Government Gazette – a name that is a true reflection of what the university stands for: Central University of Technology, Free State.
CUT’s history, from its humble beginnings to the proud institution it is today, is reflected in its buildings. The unoccupied buildings of the Commercial High School in St George Street, leased in 1981, soon became too small and a second building in President Brand Street was occupied. In 1988 the university purchased the former premises of the Eunice Primary School campus of the Bloemfontein College of Education. Before long these were followed by the Main Building (today known as ZR Mahabane Building); the bhpBilliton Building, which houses a large portion of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology; Dirk Coetzee Building, which houses the Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences; Prosperitas Auditorium, as well as Boet Troskie Hall; and a modern Library and Information Service. Lapeng Student Centre is a hub of student activity that not only renders a valuable service with regard to the students’ requirements, but also ensures that they enjoy every aspect of student life to the full. This centre is equipped with an amphitheatre as well as a cafeteria where students can socialise.
However, it would be a pity if an institution’s progress could be measured only by its state-of the-art facilities. At CUT, progress and transformation go hand in hand. Within our institutional culture, CUT can also be described in terms of the needs experienced within an African context. CUT boasts a diverse student community that is a true reflection of the demographic composition. The implementation of an employment equity plan also guarantees that the academic and support staff are representative. CUT currently employs 1 582 staff members.
CUT offers a wide range of qualifications in its four faculties, namely Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Management Sciences, and Faculty of Humanities. CUT also commands respect with its relevant research.
From its inception the institution has been aware of its social responsibility towards the broader community.
The university is aware of the fact that not everyone has the privilege to study at the main campus on a full-time basis. Therefore, selected learning programmes are offered at CUT’s Welkom Campus and Kimberley Regional Learning Centre. An exciting development was CUT’s incorporation of Welkom Campus of the former Vista University on 2 January 2004. Learning programmes in Kimberley are offered in conjunction with the Northern Cape Higher Education Institute. Through the utilisation of modern technology, some learning programmes can also be pursued electronically via the internet. In this way CUT is living up to its status and reputation as a university of technology.
In 2011 the institution celebrated its 30th year of technological innovation – soaring to 2020. The milestone is a reflection of the university’s pursuit of quality education and academic excellence. In our efforts to educate, teach and train our students with the aid of world class technology, CUT will also focus on those values it holds dearly; namely customer service, excellence, innovation, integrity and diversity.

Our Bloemfontein Campus stands proud in the City of Bloemfontein – capital of the Free State Province and judicial capital of South Africa. The campus dates back to 1904, making our university one of the oldest in the country.
The Main Building, and other buildings of historic and architectural importance portray the calm, though vibrant atmosphere synonymous with an academic institution of more than a century old.
It is a vast campus where staff and students are encouraged to walk in order to enjoy the beautiful buildings, parks, lawns and other infrastructure. Resources, planning and dedicated workmanship have been spent not only on the development of the building and facility infrastructure, but also to make the campus user- and experience-friendly.
When on the campus, stop a while and rest under one of the shady trees. You will find that many of the benches are an artwork by a famous South African artist. Walk around on our Thakaneng Bridge student centre where you can do everything from eating to buying the latest academic text books.
Our campus is immaculately maintained and it provides a safe and secure environment for our 28 186 students who study here to fulfil their academic potential. Through an active programme of sports, cultural and social interaction, our students are also given the opportunity to develop into well rounded future leaders. Accommodation is very popular and our 23 residences are within walking distance of all facilities.
Our Bloemfontein Campus is regarded as the most integrated campus in South Africa with the most diverse group of students.
The campus is situated in one of the main roads into Bloemfontein, Nelson Mandela Drive, and within walking distance of shopping centres, schools and other places of interest.
