There’s a lot of breast beating and self-examination going on in the South African business school community at the moment. The national authority for higher education is increasing the entry requirements for MBAs, enabling schools to offer a ‘professional master’s’ with a reduced research component. The accepted wisdom is that an MBA should do less in terms of research, allowing more time for ‘applied knowledge’.

Daar is op die oomblik ’n groot gewroeg en baie selfondersoek in die Suid-Afrikaanse bestuurskoolgemeenskap aan die gang. Die nasionale owerheid vir hoër onderwys is besig om die toelatingsvereistes vir MBA’s te verbreed sodat skole ’n ‘professionele meestersgraad’ met ’n kleiner navorsingskomponent kan aanbied. Die aanvaarde wysheid is dat ’n MBA minder moet doen ten opsigte van navorsing, wat meer tyd toelaat vir ‘toegepaste kennis’.
