MEA Global

About MEA Global

MEA Global Education was started in 2005 by Dr Marjolijn Dijksterhuis. As the associate director of the Rotterdam School of Management Executive MBA programme, Marjolijn realised that international study trips were excellent platforms for the development of sought-after business and leadership skills. The learning programmes offered by MEA Global Education today combine knowledge building with skill development, maximising the value gained from international exposure. Cape Town and Johannesburg, as the locations for the programmes, provide a first-class infrastructure and relatively easy access to emerging market business. South Africa is considered to be the gateway to Africa and has all the complexities and dynamics of a society in transition.


We work with acclaimed business school faculty and experienced learning facilitators, corporate speakers, government representatives, local entrepreneurs, community leaders and cultural voices to create high-impact learning experiences for (post-graduate) business students and alumni. MEA Global programmes have been lauded for their practical relevance, both at a professional and a personal level, and for their enrichment of delegates' perspectives on emerging markets in general and South Africa and Africa in particular.
