The Regenesys Business School
, with its its South Africa campus based in Sandton, has launched a lockdown higher education initiative enabled by a R100-million pledge from the Regenesys Foundation
The initiative provides a reduction of course fees by 60% for 500 students. This reduction applies to its online MBA, Bachelor’s, Diploma, and Certificate programmes for the period between May and August 2020. ICT courses include artificial intelligence; blockchain; coding; cybersecurity; data science, digital marketing; machine learning, robotics; and more.
Dr Marko Saravanja, chairperson of Regenesys Business School, said: “Regenesys is deeply committed to helping all members of society that have been affected by pay cuts and job losses to develop a competitive edge and bounce back from the pandemic or to start their own new venture.”
This initiative has been made possible by generous support from the Regenesys community of alumni, students, staff, part-time faculty, and friends of Regenesys from over 20 countries who have pledged various types of support ranging from cash to lecturing, tutoring, assessments, research supervision, mentoring and coaching, as well as salary sacrifices.”
The places are limited to 500 and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible students from South Africa, India, Nigeria and all other African countries.
