Founded in 2000, we are the University of Pretoria’s internationally accredited business school, based in Sandton, Johannesburg – South Africa’s economic hub.
The school is named after Sir Donald Gordon, in recognition of his contribution to South African business and a significant endowment to GIBS. In May 2018 the annual UK Financial Times Executive Education rankings, a global benchmark for providers of executive education, once again ranked us as the top South African and African business school.
This is the 15th year running that we have been ranked among the top business schools worldwide. In October 2018 our MBA was ranked among the top 100 business schools globally in the prestigious Financial Times Executive MBA Rankings. We are the only business school in Africa to appear in this ranking.
