More InformationThe JBS Online PGDip qualification is asynchronous which means that students do not attend live classes but complete work each week on their schedule. Students complete their weekly studies anywhere as long as they have connectivity. It is designed for busy people who require flexibility. Our Online PGDip is groundbreaking in its approach with a sharpened view on the digital era and practical application of Digital Transformation concepts and principles to chisel and fine-tune leaders of the future. Within the context of COVID, disruption and uncertainty, leaders of today require authenticity, complexity and systems thinking, and courage to build high performing teams. The learning journey is intentional in its approach and draws on the wealth of experience of the faculty to go beyond textbook based analysis or thinking.
- There are no examinations as a Continuous Evaluation Model is applied.
- Students apply their insights to exciting challenges and dilemmas posed in focused assignments to enhance performance of self, their teams, and organisations.
- By completing the Online PGDip, successful students are granted six course credits toward the JBS Online MBA, which will reduce the Online MBA from 24 months to 16 months.
- The Online PGDip is twelve months in duration.
