The B-BBEE Management Development Programme (MDP), created by the DTI, Unisa School of Business Leadership and the University of the Witwatersrand. The Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) partnered with these two prominent institutions to develop a standardised national Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Management Development Programme (MDP). The programme gives impetus to the institutionalisation of B-BBEE, within the economic system, and to professionalise the current B-BBEE industry.
This short course learning programme, equips middle level managers with informative ways of becoming team players and achieving their goals within their relevant organizations. The programme is designed to facilitate an understanding of and the ability to integrate and apply the key competencies required for each of the functional areas of business.
The dti's goal behind creating this programme is also to develop a national standardised knowledge base that capacitates the entire B-BBEE industry, which includes B-BBEE Consultants, B-BBEE Verifiers, Private and Public Sector Practitioners.
The course format is offered over two tracks, with the duration and cost of the programme dependent on the track that the participant qualifies to for.
All applicants undergo a screening process and once accepted on the programme, they will be notified by the University. Please see below for admission requirements.
