About Us

In choosing USB ​​​​Executive Development, you will discover a true learning partner that is not only conscious​​ of the bigger development picture but also encourages you to start or continue your personal development journey. As a participant on this journey with USB-ED you will form part of a growing network of leaders across the continent who are realising new heights in their personal and career development, and who are aiming to make a meaningful contribution by le​ading and serving the greater African community.​




We develop and connect leaders during innovative and transformational learning experiences, which lead to the building of extensive networks and, in turn, give rise to positive change across the African continent and beyond.

Thought Leadership

USB-ED has established Centres of Excellence to provide thought leadership and research to support both academic and practical learning in core areas.



We continually seek to expand our footprint, particularly in Africa. USB-ED has a presence in three South African provinces, Western Cape (Cape Town), Gauteng (Johannesburg) and KwaZulu-Natal (Durban). We also offer programmes in Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and beyond Africa in the United Arab Emirates.



At USB-ED we leverage on our entrepreneurial culture, rich experiences and achievements to focus our energy and resources on human capital development, in particular leadership and management. Our Ethos informs this purpose, propelling us to make a meaningful contribution firstly to the development of Africa and its people and secondly beyond Africa where our resources and capacity allow us to reach.



Our learning interventions distinguished by the differentiators of process and delivery provide leaders and managers with a solid theoretical underpinning with a strong focus on practical application. Participants are equipped with the tools and skills needed to advance their careers through continual learning and development in a vivacious and meaningful educational experience. 



We collaborate with international business schools and leading corporate partners to offer our participants world-class business learning opportunities.
