- A masters degree or an equivalent qualification from Wits University or another university.
- A supervisor from the Faculty of Commerce, Law and Management must be identified and approached prior to application.
In order to be registered for the degree, it is necessary to prepare an initial research proposal (typically 2 000 - 3 000 words) This proposal should clearly delineate the research problem, indicate the literature to be reviewed and present ideas on the methodology to be pursued. In addition, the contribution to knowledge of the research should be argued. This initial proposal will be scrutinized for suitability and a willing and able supervisor sought. After an initial review, the Higher Degrees Committee of the Faculty will inform the student whether he/she will proceed with the research.
