Executive MSc in International Finance (MIF)

International study trip

The international study trip to South Africa allows you to learn about specific core finance and investment topics for emerging markets, with a focus on Africa. You will engage with local business school faculty, industry experts, executives and entrepreneurs – in class, at companies and in emerging market communities. You will meet people from different backgrounds, from executives to youth in the townships. The programme includes presentations and discussions at the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business campus and at some of South Africa’s largest financial services companies.

Gateway to the continent

Africa has been called the last frontier for investors and a consumer market of note. South Africa is considered a gateway to the continent. Understanding this emerging market and society in transition is important to anyone who is interested investment and business opportunities in Africa. The study trip programme in Cape Town builds on this foundation around the following themes:

  • South Africa’s economy and financial markets in the global context
  • Corporate finance in an emerging market context
  • Private equity and venture capital in South Africa.
  • Sustainable investment and corporate governance.
  • Retail banking in lower-income markets: How to redefine financial services to make them work for the poor?

The Cape Town programme is hosted by MEA Global Education in cooperation with the UCT Graduate School of Business.
