USB Executive Development (USB-ED), the public executive development and training company of the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB), has recently formalised its presence in KwaZulu-Natal with the opening of an office in Umhlanga Ridge, Umhlanga.

This will further augment USB-ED’s involvement in the region with Trish Koning, Executive:  Corporate Development, to head up the new office.

According to Koning the office will pave the way for other USB-ED programmes and especially for customised executive programmes to suit the needs of companies in the region. “The focus will be to develop a footprint in KZN, with customised executive development programmes specifically targeted to the strategy and future needs of the KZN corporate environment.”

KZN has in the last few years emerged as a hub of industrial development in sub-Saharan Africa, with its unmatched natural resources, exceptional productive capacity, well-developed first-world infrastructure, and advantageous coastal location.

The office follows USB-ED’s flagship programmes that have already been presented in KZN, which include the Senior Management Development Programme (SMDP), the Management Development Programme (MDP), New Managers’ Development Programme and Project Management.

USB-ED was ranked as one of the top 50 business educators in the world by the Financial Times Executive Education World Ranking in 2011 and 2013. Both open and customised USB-ED programmes reached the top 100 on their respective categories in the last few years.

USB-ED also receiving top honours from, a national survey of academic institutions offering executive education in Southern Africa, in 2012, 2013 and in 2014.
