TSiBA is a unique private, not for profit business school that helps people who cannot access opportunities to jump ahead in life.
The Tertiary School in Business Administration (TSiBA) was founded in 2004 with a vision to “Ignite Opportunity”.
Our mission is to be an innovative learning community that graduates entrepreneurial leaders who ignite opportunity and social change.
TSiBA does this by providing emerging leaders an opportunity to study high quality, accredited academic courses that are focused on developing entrepreneurship and leadership.
Our aim is to provide excellent business education for people with a social conscience who have the desire and the skills to build our nation.
For this reason, we do not require our students to pay us back for their scholarships but rather to Pay it Forward.
TSiBA is registered and accredited with the Department of Education as a private higher education institution (No: 2007/HE08/001).
TSiBA is also registered as a Public Benefit Organisation (No: 930014613).
We currently have an urban campus in Pinelands, Cape Town and a rural campus, TSIBA Eden, in the town of Karatara, near Knysna.

Education is not only about transferring knowledge.
The TSiBA experience integrates personal development with business learning and provides a wide variety of experiential learning opportunities through coordinated internships, mentorship, leadership, entrepreneurship and career management programmes that are core to our offering.
Our small student numbers and extensive networks enable us to ignite a world of opportunity for each individual who studies with us.
This model facilitates the development of well rounded, emotionally intelligent graduates.
What makes TSiBA different:Profile of Graduateness
Our unique Profile of Graduateness places attitude at the heart of a student’s development and layers skills and knowledge around this.
We seek to ensure that our students are equipped not only for further study and the working world, but are also provided with practical opportunities to incubate and manage businesses whilst studying.

Pay it Forward
The guiding philosophy of TSiBA is embodied in the concept of “Pay it Forward” and this is an important part of our culture.
Students who are awarded scholarships are not required to pay for their education monetarily, but rather to “Pay it Forward” by transferring the knowledge, skills and resources that they gain at TSiBA to their communities.
In this way, TSiBA’s vision of “Igniting Opportunity” is realised.

Leadership and Entrepreneurship
TSiBA’s aim is to develop leaders and entrepreneurs who will take South Africa forward. Entrepreneurship and Leadership are therefore the major subjects in our degree programme.
We also create opportunities to practice leadership and entrepreneurship every day.
Built into the curriculum in all our courses are numerous opportunities to begin a business and make a difference in others people’s lives whilst still studying.
Our Ignition Centres oversee a range of services that we offer the communities in which our campuses are based. Our students also run a number of clubs and societies such as Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) and Peer Education that ignite opportunity and learning.

TSiBA is aware that access to tertiary education is hampered by many factors including the quality of secondary education and financial hurdles.
For this reason, we offer full tuition scholarships to study our full time bridging programmes, namely the Certificate in Practical Business Administration (available at TSiBA Eden only) and the Higher Certificate in Business Administration.
Further scholarships are awarded on a sliding scale to pursue our accredited Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Entrepreneurial Leadership, which is offered at TSiBA Cape Town only.
