Dear <<First Name>>
Professor Michael Hay of London Business School invites you to meet Adri Marais, the co-founder and CEO of the South African based Tertiary School in Business Administration (www.tsiba.org.za
). TSiBA (which means ‘to jump’ in isiXhosa) is an excellent example of breakthrough innovation as it provides scholarships to pursue world class education to deserving people throughout Africa. Its innovative approaches include partnering (a big 5 firm lecturing the accounting curriculum for free) and Pay it Forward (graduates returning as lecturers and mentors) and its whole person approach develops dynamic, emotionally intelligent entrepreneurs and social change agents.
Since opening doors in 2005, TSIBA has realised impressive results – including 5 Mandela Rhodes Scholars and a Kofi Annan Scholar – that place it far ahead of established institutions. Indeed, after visiting their campus Professor Otto Scharmer of MIT observed, "TSiBA is a living example of a new breed of business schools."
