The Wits School of Governance (WSG) is a post-graduate institution that works towards transforming the public, private and non-governmental sectors through education and building an Africa we all want to live in.
The WSG does this by teaching its students skills that help them navigate their challenges with confidence and purpose. It believes in making education relevant to all people by hosting regular public dialogues, debates and talks. It forms partnerships with different organisations, including those outside the higher education sector, to ensure that education translates into action.
It attracts the best academics to teach students and also has experienced practitioners contributing to the classroom and debates.
WSG believes firmly that evolution and innovation are critical to our success as the nature of the world changes. It provides an environment that allows students to extend their knowledge of theory and practice in areas that complement their work challenges. It is important that the programmes at WSG have content that is aligned to global and local challenges. It educates over 1000 students and short course participants annually.
