In Honoris’ short existence from 2017, it has been our experience that common purpose fosters delivery of Honoris’ goals – Honoris’ institutions are united in purpose and student centricity is a critical success factor. The lean yet robust business models and entrepreneurial mindsets have been critical to achieve dynamic growth and market share. We have gained experience in integrating new acquisitions successfully and driving the enrollment, quality, and academic engine in Honoris.
Through the pandemic and now ongoing, we have thrived with agile, resilient and engaged teams able to leapfrog obstacles, committed to student success.
This has been underpinned by our acceleration of the digital transformation which started before the pandemic and enabled the switch to remote learning almost immediately. Our blended approach to delivery of education has achieved positive outcomes and ensured continuity of studies. Our deliberate focus on building capacity in STEM education and most recently in creative arts, fashion and design, will ensure additional employability opportunities given the current needs of employers and innovative/unique integration of 21st century skills, providing our students with differentiating skillsets. Focus on relevant education models and solutions by challenging traditional academic models will continue to ensure that Honoris contributes to build capacity in quality education to meet the future needs of Africa.
