At a time when “Attention to detail and personal attention” are seen as clichés, it is very refreshing to find an educational institution which lives by the concept of service ad part of its creed.

Nicole Muller

Student

Being at the College has been a great privilege for me. It has changed the way I look at things in the marketing world and in our country. I have met different people in the college, meeting those people have helped me to understand different cultures and different personalities. We learn from each other.

Mluleki Sibisi

Student

Dear Mr Zachos and colleagues I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for helping me through my qualification. I know that, had I gone to any other college, I would not have received the personalized attention that helped me pass. I hope that your college will grow from strength to strength and wish you and your co-workers everything of the best, for the years to come.

Maria Stamatakis

Kathy Dokos

Dear Mr Zachos, so I have received my results and I have passed exceptionally well. I have officially completed my degree and I couldn't be happier. I received 81% for Marketing and 77% Brand Management. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you Mr Zachos and all the staff members at the College for the support and guidance that I have received throughout the three and a half years of my studies. I would never have passed my degree as well as what I have if it wasn't for the College. Your study support, help with the assignments and guidance throughout the exam period is phenomenal and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me through my degree.

Samantha Huggett

Michelle Ma

It is rare to meet a person with such passion and motivation as Mr Zachos has!

Marina Patuel

Student

Where do I begin? Wow, it has been an incredible two years, I have learned so much from you and your fellow lecturers! I'd like to thank you for the wonderful journey travelled, for keeping 'Rivonia' open when we were just three - I cannot begin to tell you what that meant to me! You have inspired, you have cared and you have guided. Without your strength, motivation and continued support, we would not be where we are today. You have made the journey worthwhile. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for just being you!

Vanessa Cusens

Student

I just wanted to let you know that you and your college have done wonders for me. We know that some of the students didn't like the "discipline" but if it weren't for that, you wouldn't be getting the top results from your devoted students. I am now the PR Marketing Officer at Natalia Estates in Margate, I am involved in the marketing of the San Martinho Beach development in Mozambique and will be coming up to Joburg later this month or next to market and network. I am enjoying the work I'm doing now since it involves what you taught me... thank you!!! Thank you for allowing me the privilege in getting to know you AND you have crept into my heart and I will never forget you and your "chalk fingers".

Tarryn Du Plessis

Student

After failing dismally through Sandton Business College, I managed to pass all my subjects and it is all because of your effort and brilliant notes.

Victor Selaelo

Student

Starting my year at the college, I was immature and undisciplined. I had NO idea how I was going to survive a marketing degree with subjects like FM and Stats, after all, I spent my whole high school years avoiding such subjects. I was not used to the rules, and I opposed them at every turn in my mind, why do I need a doctors note? Why is being 5 minutes late such a big deal? So what if I miss one class, or two or three? WELL, I can honestly say as a first-year I opposed them and as a fourth-year I am grateful for them. Without you Mr Zachos, I would not have had the belief that I could do well, I had not achieved a distinction in high school and sure as anything did not ever think it was possible to get nine as a college student. Thank you for everything

Kayley Mancer

Student

I looked up the college's email address on Google as I wanted to contact you and I was happy to see your great website! As I left South Africa years ago, I have not had the chance to see you for some time now, though next time I am home to visit my family it would be great to come past one of the campuses to say hello to you in person. I work for Pfizer and I have been with the company for more than 3 years now. I moved to New York City to work at Pfizer's world headquarters in 2007 and I am now based in Dubai where I am the Regional Professional Relations and Marketing Services Manager, looking after Africa and the Middle East. I am so fond of the college and yourself, as you gave me the foundation to be where I am today. I hope to hear back from you Mr Zachos.

I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to the College for the continued support and encouragement which has helped me tremendously throughout my journey at the collage. M Zachos, your fundamental morals and values that you have thought, I will carry with me always. Thank you so much for the continued support and astounding reference.I will forever be thankful!

Thank you to Mr Zachos as well as Mrs Van Niekerk and Mrs Coetzee for pushing me and giving me such amazing support in the journey of me obtaining my degree in Marketing Management. Now that I have my degree I feel on top of the world. I have an amazing job at CTU Training Solutions as a marketing assistant and it safe to say without your college I would never have been where I am today. Also, thank you for teaching me that a little hard work never killed anyone. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Nicole Parker

Hi Mr Zachos, I just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for helping me through last years classes with my degree. A BIG thank you to you for the help with the two financial subjects, you have a system that truly works at the college and I shall have no hesitation in recommending your college to anyone who wants to do a marketing degree.
