The Da Vinci Institute

Introduction

WELCOME TO THE DA VINCI INSTITUTE

The Institute was established in 2004 as a result of a decision by Warwick University to exit the education landscape in South Africa because of the then revised regulatory requirements for overseas universities in the country. With the support of Mr Nelson Mandela and Dr Ben Ngubane, the Marcus family decided to continue with the work started by Warwick and as a result, established what is now known as The Da Vinci Institute for Technology Management. The Institute was provisionally registered with the Department of Higher Education in 2004. The first Chief Executive Officer, Professor Benjamin Anderson, joined The Institute in 2005. Under his leadership, The Institute received full registration and accreditation status from the Department of Higher Education and Training and the Council on Higher Education during 2006. The first Institutional Audit was conducted during 2006 by the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC).

Being a Mode 2 educational institution, The Institute is focused on the creation of knowledge that is transdisciplinary in nature, socially relevant and of which the intent is to solve work-based problems and to contribute towards the professional development of the people involved. It is in this context that The Institute facilitates a journey of self-discovery for prospective business leaders and entrepreneurs.

The Institute derives its passion from developing entrepreneurs and future managerial leaders who will contribute to the facilitation of a sustainable and socioeconomic transformed society. Together with its South African and international associations, The Institute offers a spectrum of learning solutions including aspects related to, amongst others, entrepreneurship, innovation management, systems thinking and managerial leadership. By offering students an opportunity to participate in an international immersion they could obtain a truly global perspective on managerial leadership development as it presents itself in different parts of the world. Students are able to participate in small classes, affording them the opportunity to reflect on their own learning and to integrate such with that of people who represent a wide range of cultural backgrounds and organisational realities.

The Institute which is situated in the serene and peaceful suburb of Modderfontein, offer Higher Certificate, Diploma, Bachelor, Master and Doctorate qualifications in the Management of Technology, Innovation, People, Systems (TIPS™) and Business Management(B).

By integrating the TIPS™ (B) framework, The Institute is able to engage, align and become agiler in co-creating new workplace realities with students and sponsors alike. This cooperative framework enables The Institute to offer a truly responsive service to meet its student’s ever-changing organisational performance needs.

The Institute is registered as a Private Higher Education Institution under the Higher Education Act 1997, registration no 2004/HE07/003. The Institute’s qualifications are accredited by the Council on Higher Education and recorded with the South African Qualifications Authority.
