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



Private higher education institutions have steadily made inroads into the tertiary education model in southern Africa. For many, these institutions have become a preferred choice to further their education and careers.

While the quality of most private institutions’ qualifications is right up there with the best – and they are also internationally recognised – the biggest criticism has been price, which has historically been higher than that of public universities. But this is also changing. One institution that has undoubtedly bucked this trend, is Southern Business School. The price of our internationally recognised qualifications is on par with that of their counterparts in public universities. In fact, in most instances, we are more affordable.

We are passionate about providing access to higher education for as many students as possible. Students are pleasantly surprised when they enquire about the affordability of our programmes and when they realise that they can pay off their studies monthly.

Southern Business School currently serves 14 000 students and we tick all the boxes to empower our students to complete their qualifications successfully. We are one of South Africa’s oldest and largest private higher education institutions. We are experts in distance learning and over the past 24 years we have opened doors for thousands of career-driven individuals.

Southern Business School offers a wide variety of qualifications on NQF levels 5–9, ranging from higher certificates to doctorates in Business and Administration, Commerce, Policing and Law. Included in our offering is a Bachelor of Commerce in Laws as well as an LLB.

Against the backdrop of Covid 19, distance education has become the most reliable method of student engagement, and Southern Business School currently leads the way in distance-based private higher education in southern Africa. We have become a trusted haven in an often uncertain tertiary education environment.

Our distance learning platform has become particularly sought after during the lockdown because our students’ learning processes have not been interrupted. 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 and we are proud to be recognised as one of the most trusted tertiary higher education institutions in southern Africa. We have campuses in Krugersdorp and Windhoek, but because our learning model is distance based, students can register and study through us wherever they live or work in southern Africa.

To earn a recognised qualification has never been more important than now in the uncertain environment which has been created by Covid 19. And because many people are now working from home, they have the time to further their studies.

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