Our Business School, the DaVinci Institute for Technology Management, proudly joined the Association of African Business Schools (AABS) this month, a milestone that marks our dedication to the promotion and enhancement of business education in Africa.
AABS is a prestigious African association, housing the largest community of business schools across the continent. It represents over 60 esteemed institutions across numerous African countries, including Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, South Africa, DRC, Egypt, Morocco, Ethiopia, Algeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Senegal, and Mali.
Membership in the AABS is only granted to organisations with a physical campus in Africa, that offer programmes in business education approved by a higher education authority in an African country. Each member is unique, independent in philosophy, and committed to their mission while accountable to their community.
“We are excited to join this leading network of quality business education in Africa, focussing on relevance, impact, and sustainability, supporting African businesses through capacity building, collaboration, and quality education programmes” said Professor HB Klopper, the Chief Executive of DaVinci.
This affiliation further solidifies our Business School’s commitment to providing world-class education in South Africa and Africa at large. DaVinci is also affiliated with the South African Private Higher Education (SAPHE), the South African Business School Association (SABSA), the South African Association of Freight Forwarders (SAAFF), and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), a global professional body that represents the transport and logistics industries.
“We will not only have access to various tailored workshops and network events but will also actively participate in offering workshops together with other member institutions,” adds Prof Klopper.
DaVinci is dedicated to co-creating exceptional learning journeys, providing educational solutions that yield a substantial return on investment for business leaders and individuals. Our mission is to broaden access to education and empower future leaders to effect positive change in the world.
Our Business School places a unique emphasis on the Management of Technology, Innovation, People, and Systems Thinking (TIPS™), a proprietary framework integrated into all our programmes. This approach enhances the performance of our students and their teams, particularly within developing economies and markets.
Offering a range of business degrees tailored to meet various needs, DaVinci allows students to study at their own pace, from anywhere and at any time. Our approach to learning transcends the traditional, ensuring a personal, social, and economic return on investment in students' learning journey, whilst upholding best practice models.
DaVinci’s membership with AABS sets a new precedent for our commitment to business education and strengthens its impact in shaping the future of business and innovation in Africa. This partnership will widen access to quality business education further, encourage innovative thinking, and empower more individuals to effect meaningful change in society.
