Are you a free thinker?
Do you want to use your energy and ideas to build a better world?
The UCT Graduate School of Business, Africa’s top business school, is now inviting applications to its pioneering MPhil specialising in Inclusive Innovation – a hands-on postgraduate degree that aims to generate practical and scalable sustainable solutions to African challenges.
UCT GSB are looking for passionate and creative individuals who have an undergraduate degree and some work experience – it doesn’t really matter in what field – the MPhil creates the conditions for people from across the spectrum of disciplines to work together on complex challenges.
The goal is radical innovation leading to sustainable solutions – they aren’t concerned with what shape or form these take – only that they work.
Innovation is now firmly recognised as the key driver for growth in both developed and developing economies – but the reality is that the take-up of innovation in Africa, as a way to tackle to socio-economic issues, is low. UCT GSB want to change that.
You will work in an exciting environment, unconstrained by set cultures, with peers from across the continent and be exposed to some of the most exciting thinkers and practitioners working in the field of social innovation and entrepreneurship at this time.
If that is not enough of an incentive, the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship is also offering two scholarships for the 2015 programme – to be awarded to outstanding candidates from across Africa.
