TSIBA Business School is still accepting students for 2020 and offering scholarships

With most education institutions closing applications at the end of this month, what happens to the thousands of students with Bachelor Pass matrics whose dreams rely on a place at university for a bright future?

TSIBA Business School, registered and accredited with the Department of Higher Education and Training provides its students with world-class business education. Not only do they still have places available but all undergraduate students qualify for generous tuition scholarships based on what they can afford (means test).

Thanks to partnerships with the corporate world as well as international and local institutions, TSIBA’s future-focused business education is designed to have a profound impact by producing highly employable graduates and successful small business enterprises. TSIBA equips its students with the business knowledge, attitude and resilience to answer the demands of future employers and to positively transform their workplace or business.

Past alumni have gone on to have successful careers in prestigious organisations such as Sanlam, Lewis Group, Prudential Asset Management, Alan Gray, Granate Asset Management and Old Mutual to name a few, as well as many innovative start-up companies. One of TSIBA’s graduandi, Courage Chiringa, has recently achieved his crowdfunding target to further his studies in Entrepreneurship & Marketing at UCT, making use of Backabuddy. “I am the first generation university student in my family. I want to make a difference in my community as there are so many people coming from humble beginnings like mine, suffering from trauma, pain and lacking inspiration. I believe that a good attitude, hard work and always looking on the brighter side of life will help people be successful even when it seems impossible."
