The Institute of Business Management was established in 1973 after an appeal by government for an institution to come forward to do business management training for the smaller independent rural business community. The Institute of Business Management was established for this purpose and has since conducted many successful training seminars throughout the country.
The Institute introduced the Diploma in Business Management in 1995, which was one of the first training programmes to be submitted for accreditation to the HSRC voluntarily by a private business training institution in South Africa.
The Institute has kept up with the ever changing training and education industry and has overcome many new challenges with national impact as an official and accredited training provider of quality full qualifications, short courses and skills programmes. We are now an online and distance education provider of choice with a wide range of courses that aim to address critical skills shortages and enhance career opportunities.
