Challenge the status quo
Challenging the status quo runs through the very heartbeat of TSiBA – our students, entrepreneurs and lecturers. Today’s business world wants more from its graduates and our values-based approach delivers a strong learning environment based on dignity, integrity, resilience and purpose. TSiBA’s education journey unlocks the best of what each student and entrepreneur should and can be.
Innovative Education Financing
TSIBA applies an innovative approach to financing education which allows students to contribute towards their tuition at relative levels of affordability.
TSiBA degree students study on scholarship but are required to pay a percentage of their annual tuition fees based on a sliding scale of household affordability. The sliding scale rate is based on financial means and is calculated on the combined total household income of registered students.
Value-based business education
Our inclusive learning community also provides an environment where students, entrepreneurs, lecturers and staff share core values, building lifelong relationships based on dignity, integrity, resilience and purpose. We draw energy and ideas from our immensely diverse community, while respecting individual and cultural values which determine who we are and what we do.

“I work at Voys SA, where I was head-hunted 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.”
