Since our inception in 1996 we have committed ourselves to providing recognised South African qualifications to contribute to the body of managerial talent.




Registration for the 2nd semester closes in two weeks! Students who would like to get to the starting line to further their education and careers must enrol before 15 August to ensure that they don’t miss out.

Southern Business School is one of South Africa’s oldest and largest private higher education institutions. We specialise in distance learning and over the past 24 years we have opened doors for thousands of career-driven individuals who have obtained qualifications to get promoted or to improve their job security.

Southern Business School offers a wide variety of qualifications, ranging from NQF level 5 to NQF level 9 (higher certificates to masters degrees), in business and administration, commerce, policing and law. Included in our offering is a Bachelor of Commerce in Laws as well as an LLB. Our qualifications are recognised internationally and provide students with a head start in their careers.

Our distance learning platform has become particularly sought after during the lockdown because our students’ learning processes aren’t influenced. Students in South Africa and abroad stay abreast of their studies on the advanced and user-friendly MySBS online platform.

Southern Business School was founded in 1996 with 28 students. Today we serve 14 000 students and we are proud to be recognised as one of the most trusted higher education institutions in southern Africa. We have campuses in Krugersdorp and Windhoek, but because we have a distance learning model, students can register and study wherever they live or work in southern Africa.

Quality tertiary education and obtaining a recognised qualification have never been more important than today in the uncertain environment which has been created by Covid-19. And, because many people now work from home, they have the time to further their studies.

You are never too old to get going. The average age of our students is 37. With our distance learning platform, we take our students’ busy work schedules into account and our lecturers are at hand to assist. Our lecturers are passionate about our students and have their interests at heart.

Southern Business School is renowned for the quality of its programmes, but it is also well known for the affordability of qualifications. Students are pleasantly surprised when they enquire about the affordability of our programmes, and they can pay off their studies monthly. We are passionate about providing access to higher education for as many students as possible.

If you are considering bettering your future, choose a trusted distance-learning higher education institution with a proven track record spanning 24 years.
