Our focus is on developing well-rounded and resourceful creatives who understand and value the entrepreneurial ethos upon which the founders, Aleit Swanepoel & Hans Roosenschoon, first built the giant that today is the diverse holdings of the Aleit brand.
Why stop there? Our diploma is complemented by our additional course offering, a 6-week short course in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management.
