Regent Business School was established to satisfy the urgent demand for management education in Southern Africa. Regent Business School is one of the few business schools in South Africa with an established association with a large overseas university.
From inception, this link was established with the University of Luton in the United Kingdom to offer a range of business and management programmes by distance and supported learning to Southern African students. Regent Business School (RBS) continues to benefit enormously from the alliance with the University of Luton.
Regent is registered as a private higher education institution by the Department of Education in South Africa. In addition, the Council on Higher Education (CHE) has accredited all Regent’s programmes including the Bachelor of Commerce (B Com) degree and Master of Business Administration degree (MBA).
Regent offers a range of fully accredited programmes from one year programmes to post-graduate qualifications, adding to its range of management qualifications in line with the changing requirements of the Southern African market.
The RBS distance and supported learning programmes provide a professional educational qualification that will equip you with practical business knowledge to enable you to succeed in the highly competitive work situation.
