RBS is a Private Higher Education Institution with their head office located in the industrial hub of Durban. The institution was established in 1998 with a mission to provide affordable and accessible education, resulting in a number of fully accredited world class programs.
RBS programs cover the areas of Business Administration, Commerce, Management and Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Local Government, and Educational Management with a range from higher certificates to postgraduate programs, including the recently launched Doctor of Business Administration (DBA).
The unprecedented pace of technological advancements in recent times has seen tremendous growth in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, autonomous vehicles, the Internet of Things (IoT), and nanotechnology. These fields have become the new norm of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) or the Digital Age. As such, new standards for what students should be able to do are replacing the basic skill competencies and knowledge expectations of the past; this informs RBS’ courses as well as their teaching, learning, and assessment regime.
“RBS sees education as the avenue which will lead society to overcome the gaps and barriers between our current challenges and our ideal circumstances. Education for impact is about incorporating a practical, humanistic approach to the theoretical knowledge that is imparted to our students. This means RBS focuses on presenting courses in a holistic manner, ensuring that our students develop problem-solving skills which integrate economic, social, and ecological factors. RBS prioritizes quality education, incorporating 21st century learning in the teaching methodologies focused on producing holistic graduates.”
The student lifecycle at RBS is original and innovative. From student enrollment to graduation and beyond, students enjoy accelerated digitization within their courses, agile responses to their needs, and exemplary innovation along their journey. The approach RBS takes towards the student lifecycle can be divided into four major components and described as follows:
Network: the power of regional and global collaboration through institutions and partnerships and the positive impact.
Learning: quality education and developing world-class African human talent with an entrepreneurial mindset and 21st century skills to thrive in the globally disrupted world of work.
Innovation: education must continuously evolve to meet the challenges of the fast-changing and unpredictable globalized world.
Employability: commitment to enhancing employability of graduates.
Communities: delivering a positive social impact in local communities.
Continuous learning and professional development is an important matter for RBS. As such, RBS is proud to present MBA students with the opportunity to articulate into a Doctoral Program, as RBS is Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) accredited.
“I found REGENT Business School to be leading in modern teaching techniques and very supportive to ensure that the student succeeds in their studies. RBS also offers a wealth of knowledge and exposure to the extent of making the learner want to learn more and more. RBS also prepares you for success in your Masters programs easily. I am now working for an international conglomerate called Bayer, under the Crip Science division. I am responsible for International Trade and Compliance for the Zambia business. RBS studies have helped me to use and share knowledge with my team. I therefore would encourage younger professionals to consider RBS for career progression.”
“The journey of completing an MBA with RBS was no easy feat... but worth its weight! If ever a qualification has shattered unemployability, this degree is just that. I secured a great job, moved from temporary contracts that finished abruptly to having security and ease of mind. Thank you RBS, the great research department and Prof. Seedat for being able to make you laugh during webinars when all you thought about was stressing to pass a module or understanding the real requirements of an assignment. The Calm Any MBA student needs! To those that are doubting the legitimacy, accreditation and good standing of RBS, you are missing out! Try RBS, you won’t regret it!”
