Students who enrol for the MBA can attend plenary sessions with the University of London’s Royal Holloway lecturers in London. A very important element of the programme is the locally presented evening classes and facilitation of classes that is offered by experienced and qualified university-approved Namibian lecturers.
Students can also write their bi-annual exams in Windhoek and this locally presented aspect of the programme enables students to study close to home without having to afford flights and accommodation expenses to London to receive tutoring.
