Dec 2017 News: TSiBA's Future is #Vision2020 

Dear Friends of TSiBA

Looking back on 2017 we can clearly see how macro trends continue to be dictated to by what is referred to as the "4th Industrial Revolution" (by now a familiar buzzword). However; the reality of a stagnant economy and the surprising stamina of the #feesmustfall movement offers TSiBA the opportunity to be resilient and flourish amidst new opportunities that grow out of challenging times. 

It has been an exciting year for TSiBA collaborating with industry experts like 
BCG and Ogilvy to craft a sustainable operational model to meet the future head-on. We're calling this #Vision2020. Our vision is to make quality education an earned right and not a privilege. To empower a TSiBA student is to empower the next generation of South African trailblazers.

The implementation of strategic fundamental shifts 
are already in play. We’re both confident and excited that this will position us as a leading, niche-market qualification provider in partnership with Industry.

Wishing you and your family a safe, happy and healthy festive season. Looking forward to breaking new ground together in 2018.
