Course Details

Management Development Programme (MDP)


SGI’s National Certificate in Generic Management is the ideal course to use as a Management Development Programme (MDP) within a corporate structure. Different to most competitors, this is one-year long qualification that addresses each management area (leadership, teams, finances, operations, innovation, talent) in a seven-week period. It is also 100% online, scalable and has six start dates in a year.

It focuses on the general management principles that lay an excellent foundation in entrepreneurial – and leadership – capabilities. The strategy, systems and people-management abilities it provides is the ideal thinking that middle managers are required to have in business. It is a practical, work-ready qualification meaning what is learnt today can be applied today. Learning coaches are provided to each student to provide support and guidance leading to a successful completion.


The online learning experience differentiates pure content providers from effective learning providers . SGI specialises in leadership content that translates into practical implementation in the workplace.

We will collaborate with you to provide a learning solution with business-relevant content that can scale your company’s learning and development requirements without employees having to leave the workplace.

In choosing Stellenbosch Graduate Institute, organisations and individuals will discover a learning partner that is not only conscious of the need for experiential learning, but also strives to customise programmes to meet both the strategic needs of the organisation and the development needs of the individual.
