It's what I think I know
that keeps me from learning
IE Business School
In July 2017 I completed an international MBA at IE Business School in Madrid, Spain. I crowd-funded €5,000 and received a Rotary International Scholarship to cover my costs. Doing an MBA as an entrepreneur allowed me to:
UCT Graduate School of Business
Associate in Management
In 2012 I completed the Associate in Management post-graduate diploma at the University of Cape Town's Graduate School of Business. This was a pre-MBA preparation and an opportunity to integrate business theory into a tech startup (Yappo) in real-time and build startup vocabulary.
Positions: 5 class distinctions, class representative.
Engineering - Geomatics
Geospatial Engineering & Technology
As an 18-year-old with an over-zealous sponge brain, I combined a BSc. Geomatics from University of Cape Town with a National Diploma in Land Surveying from Cape Peninsular University of Technology.
These courses built my appreciation for structure, symmetry, data analysis and the ability to problem solve.
TSiBA is, without a doubt, one of my happy places in Cape Town. It is a not-for-profit business school focusing on leadership and entrepreneurship. It is a home for many, a place that focuses on giving access to opportunities for people whose lives are influenced by their social circumstances and not their freedom of choice.
