Say Hello to Short Courses
We're ready to take your business to the next level.
The Wits Enterprise Short Course Unit is responsible for the administration of many Wits University short courses including courses offered to the public as well as short courses which are customised to meet the needs of specific stakeholders. The majority of these courses are formally certified by the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. For example, Wits University is recognised as the preeminent South African University in the area of mining and its offers include a comprehensive suite of mining programmes administered by Wits Enterprise to support the industry.

The Short Course Business Unit offers turnkey delivery solutions for faculties and outside service providers and is recognised as a one-stop shop for excellence in short course delivery. We offer a wide range of public courses that come from a number of faculties and schools within the University. Select an option below for more info:

We also offer Customised Short Courses.
The Wits Enterprise Short Course unit integrates the collective knowledge of the University across faculties and schools to create short courses that are tailored to meet the needs of our stakeholders. These courses range from single school generic programmes to multi-school specialised programmes. Recent examples include multidisciplinary programmes addressing the Aeronautical, Nuclear and Mining industries that have been specifically developed in response to industry requirements.

The Wits Enterprise staff work with clients and faculty to develop turnkey programmes designed to meet specific needs of the client and use work based action learning to reinforce theory presented in class. The academic works with senior management of the client to ensure the appropriateness of the assignments and case studies. This results, in many cases, in immediate return on training spend through workplace productivity improvements or cost savings.

In addition to this, Wits Enterprise offers open programmes in business management at NQF Level 5 and 7 and are the preferred supplier together with UNISA SBL to the dti on the National Standardised B-BBEE Management Development Programme.
