MBA Sponsorship Programme,Investec South Africa


Investec is recognised for attracting talented individuals and creating an environment which enables extraordinary performance. In this environment, we position personal growth, learning opportunities and development as key.

In line with this development philosophy, Investec has embarked on an initiative to afford South Africans the opportunity to pursue an Investec-funded MBA at a leading international business school. Preference will be given to EE candidates.

The aim of the initiative is to invest in the future intellectual capital of the country with a view to having such candidates bring their learnings and innovative ideas back into Investec.

Applicants will have the opportunity to pursue their MBA at one of the following institutions:

Cambridge Judge Business School
Harvard Business School
London Business School
Tel Aviv University’s Sofaer International
Wharton University of Pennsylvania

The Opportunity

In order to attract appropriate candidates, Investec will undertake a rigorous interview process to select six talented individuals, and will offer these individuals employment contracts with a work-back clause.
Investec will offer each individual the opportunity to study an MBA at one of six leading international business schools, conditional on the understanding that:

The applicant gains acceptance to the preferred MBA programme
The applicant will work for Investec South Africa once they have completed the programme
The applicant will not be ‘bought out’ by another company on completion of the programme
Investec will support individuals with their applications and motivations for acceptance into the preferred MBA programme
Investec will cover the full cost of the programme, including tuition, boarding and travel expenses, and will pay the applicant a monthly stipend
The decision to focus on particular institutions is a result of multiple factors, including sound reputation of both the institution and its particular MBA offering, international outlook, global exposure, calibre of alumni, progressive philosophy and approach towards learning, and organisational alignment with Investec’s culture and values.
