Why Edge Business School?
1. Our students pass
The benchmark that Edge strives towards is that at least 8 out of every 10 of our full time students for which we offer tuition support will get a qualification or professional designation.
We specialise in tuition support towards accountancy, finance, investment and business management qualifications and professional designations. This means we are more focused in our areas of expertise.
This enables Edge to consistently obtain an average of 80% or more pass rate for individual subjects each and every semester.
Over the past 20 years, Edge lecturers have produced outstanding results. Edge lecturers taught 1 of the top 2 CA(SA) students in South Africa for 10 consecutive years. In June 2015, the top CA(SA) ITC student was an Edge student.
2. Private learning is different from public learning
Many universities have large first year classes of hundreds of students being lectured at a time. Edge Business School has smaller classes for full time students; this allows individual attention to be given to students where needed, in an environment where lecturers are fully accessible to students.
3. Outstanding lecture facilities
Face-to-face lectures take place at our Sandton City Office Tower Campus, Sandton City.
Lecture rooms are comfortable and modern. Classes are recorded and placed online so students can revisit lectures as often as they like.
We are an approved Google Classroom business school which allows us to harness the latest technology in facilitating teaching and learning.
The Edge campus operates 24/7/365. This means your studies come first; rain or shine. There is a generator on campus in case of power outages. Lectures take place in a safe and secure environment with no student disruptions or unrest.
4. Affordable private education
Full time fees for 2018 are R45,000 for 1st year full time students. This is an all in one fee and includes:

Edge has never had any lecture disruptions to date. We want a student that is seriously committed to their studies.
7. Workplace readiness programme
Edge offers a workplace readiness program to ensure that our learners have an advantage in the search for employment after their studies have been completed. Edge cares about learners succeeding in their chosen careers.

8. Get excellent tuition support towards qualifications and professional designations
Our lecturers do not set University exams and operate independently of Universities. Edge lecturers do not know what is in the University exams.
Edge lecturers teach the entire syllabus to our students. This results in a well-rounded learning experience in which our students are closely monitored to pick up problems. Problems need to be resolved before an exam to maintain Edge’s 80% pass rates which have been consistently achieved in the past.
The University fees are not included in the Edge tuition fees.
Learners may attend tuition support for the ICB programme at anytime during the year. New courses are continuously run.
CIMA is an internationally recognised professional designation, recognised in over 100 countries around the world. CIMA intakes are in January and July
Once you have a degree or post graduate qualification we offer tuition support towards professional designations such as CFA, CAIA , FRM and CA(SA) and their qualifying exams.
9. Lifelong career support
We believe all our students are lifelong learners.
Edge offers professional update courses once you have qualified.
We also offer programs towards globally recognised professional designations after you have completed your tertiary studies.
Edge believes that we are the education partner you can trust to help you prepare for your career, and to keep you in the know with professional developments after your tertiary studies have been completed.
