"TSIBA has an amazing network of highly qualified, passionate experts who are excited to share their knowledge and experience with students. As a specialist qualification focusing on entrepreneurship development, the PGDip SEC programme gave me the perspective and skills (both hard and soft) to understand the unique world of small business."
"I work at Voys SA, where I was headhunted after having met the founder in the Netherlands while conducting my final-year internship. I now work for the most people-centric and progressive business I know! Had I not learned, at TSIBA, to confidently put myself out there and network, I would have missed plenty of opportunities in my twenties."
"During my journey in the TSIBA curriculum, I grew to know myself better, because, at its core, TSIBA allows us to know ourselves better so that we can navigate the world better. So that we can make a powerful impact"
“If you want to find out who you are, apply to study or build your business with TSIBA!’’
“The Leadership & Self Development module at TSIBA has allowed me to leave the institution knowing firstly Who I Am and secondly knowing what my values are. A TSIBA Degree enables one to stand out among fellow graduates from other institutions at the workplace. Attitude, Emotional Intelligence, and understanding different worldviews: these are all parts of TSIBA degree that have allowed me to settle in the working environment with ease."
“The Learnership shaped me, both academically and professionally. The course helped me learn fast because we get to apply my knowledge every day in our workplace. The Learnership has enhanced my business skills, that opened new doors for better employment.’’
“TSIBA has introduced me to an entrepreneur programme where participating entrepreneurs can develop their business and growing their network."
“It’s always after I’ve won someone over in terms of my character and work ethic do I get asked where I studied. TSIBA helped me build my character and brand; today it speaks louder than my CV. It’s competitive out there - every day the bar is set higher and higher. TSIBA takes you a step higher than the rest, through a very robust degree and content that really stretches you. The best investment anyone can make is getting their hands on this degree.”
"TSIBA is a cutting edge institution. TSIBA has a strong focus on their students- and journeys with them on their personal growth. Its Academic curricula is designed to prepare the students for the work environment. After my Industry Practical Project, I was employed immediately. And the important thing is yourself- if you really want to pass or get that internship/ permanent job you need to work hard no matter what."
“TSIBA is an institution that moulds your thinking and allows you to be more considerate of those around you. TSIBA teaches you the skills to thrive in an ever-changing corporate and entrepreneurial landscape and at the same time, serve as a constant reminder that money and power are concepts that are empty when the purpose of attainment is not for the greater good."
"TSIBA empowered me with the right attitude and emotional intelligence to pursue further studies and later on, join the finance industry. Most importantly, TSIBA provided me with the right academic and emotional support I needed in order to flourish."
