JOHANNESBURG: 11 December 2013 – A tertiary education is an investment that will pay back over a lifetime. People with a tertiary education develop skills, have better job opportunities and consequently earn more money. Regenesys Business School understands that in order for organisations to be competitive, they need personnel with skill sets that will enable them to perform at a world class level.
“The world is changing rapidly and as the business environment becomes more competitive, employers are looking for employees that possess the critical competencies that add value to the organisation,” says Siegie Brownlee, Chief Executive Officer, Regenesys Business School.
According to a survey by Regenesys Business School, 48% of South Africa’s workforce engages in further studies for better employment prospects and 23% feel that studying would increase their chances of a promotion.
“These results are a clear indication that there is a desire amongst South African’s working force to equip themselves for opportunities within the corporate environment. Many understand that with a tertiary education, comes a set skills and a broad base of knowledge that they’ll use for the rest of their lives,” added Brownlee.
As part of its commitment to ensuring access to quality higher education – through it`s free business education initiative – Regenesys Business School launched its ‘Free to Learn’ competition. Qualifying students stand a chance to win bursaries to the value $10 000 – enabling them to study and acquire a formal qualification such as a certificate, degree or MBA.
“It is our fundamental premise that what differentiates ordinary from extraordinary managers and leaders is their emotional and spiritual intelligence. Coupled with quality education, these individuals increase their ability to think critically and engage staff to make wise decisions; traits that any aspiring manager, executive or leader should have” concluded Brownlee.
