Academic Programmes

The School has maintained a partnership with Maastricht School of Management (MsM) in the Netherlands that has enabled us to offer an accredited MBA programme through which over 175 Namibian students have graduated since the year 2000. This partnership is being extended to cover new programmes such as DBA, PhD and Executive Training Programmes. The mission of the School is furthermore translated into a number of other existing academic programmes:

NBS offers a truly international focus in its course contents. Its teaching programme is a blend of theory and practice, directed towards the needs of practising business professionals.
