The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE)





Successful project implementation and completion cannot be left to chance. Organisations are stricter than ever on effective use of limited resources and therefore project budgeting, planning, implementation and control are essential skills for any individual working with projects.

The staff and lectures are very helpful and excellent in the roles they play. Their schedules and time frames for each of the courses I've finished thus far have been 100% correct."

"The course was so practical, I feel like I have the ability to go out and manage a project. It's not all theory that I have no clue how to apply. It was a privilege to learn from Bobby Keller at The IIE's Business School at Varsity College Pretoria. He has a lifetime of experience to share."
