Message From The Director

Welcome to Namibia Business School, the premier* Business School in Namibia.  I am Professor Grafton Whyte and it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. The place where you will find information about the programmes, (long and short), which will not only enhance your career but also open doors which may not have opened otherwise.

The Business School was founded to meet the needs of the Namibian market, to deliver graduates with advanced skills and knowledge, with an unmatched expertise in leadership and management, good governance, social transformation and entrepreneurship – in the African context. That can only be achieved through teamwork and innovation – traits that we’ve inherited from our founding members. In 2009, the Founding Vice-Chancellor of the University of Namibia, Professor Peter Katjavivi, assisted by the former head of the Economics Department, Professor Mohammed El Toukhy, joined forces with the FNB Foundation and entered into a collaboration agreement with the Maastricht School of Management in the Netherlands to offer an Executive MBA Programme at UNAM.

Now, eleven years later we offer five Executive Programmes, a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration, Masters in Business Administration with seven specializations and a Doctorate in Business Administration.

In response to global upheaval in 2020 we are pleased to offer all these programmes in blended online mode in keeping with the best business schools globally. Through excellence, integrity, accountability and service, we have produced more graduates* than any other institution in Namibia. Furthermore, we are the institution which educates and graduates – all for the benefit of this mighty Nation.
