n South African Journal of Higher Education - The intellectual quality of the arguments in 'The state of the provision of the MBA in South Africa'

The South African Council on Higher Education developed and applied regulatory principles with respect to the MBA during 2002-2004. They are being applied progressively to all South African post-graduate education. CHE's assessment of its MBA review process, 'The State of the Provision of the MBA in South Africa', was published in October 2004. CHE has given it the status of a research report. The Report's standard of analysis, reasoning and argument, however, is below the standards which CHE imposes on South African higher education research. This raises serious matters of policy credibility and effectiveness. There are international implications as well. The integrity of mutual recognition systems, together with South Africa's regulatory reputation, may be threatened by a sub-standard performance by CHE.
