MSA joins the ADvTECH family
by Alwyn Louw: Academic President of Monash South Africa.
In September 2018 we announced that ADvTECH/IIE is acquiring Monash South Africa (MSA), subject to all the required regulatory approvals.
We are pleased to announce that all approvals have been granted, and the acquisition process has been concluded. This implies that all qualifications of MSA have now been transferred as fully accredited and registered programmes to The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE) which is the country’s largest, most accredited private higher education institution.
Effective 8 April 2019, MSA will integrate into The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE), ADvTECH’s Higher Education subsidiary, and will be established as IIE MSA, a brand of The IIE.
We are excited about the opportunities, synergies and scale this change creates, enabling us to make an even more significant contribution to the development of higher education in South Africa and Africa.
As a leader in the higher education sphere, The IIE, now including MSA, remains committed to ensure educational excellence and quality learning experiences through our network of institutions and campuses.
All our current and future students will therefore continue to benefit from the world-class, quality education, backed by strong industry partnerships for greater employability prospects upon graduation.
IIE MSA and ADvTECH/IIE are working closely together to ensure a seamless transition. The focus is to ensure that all existing students continue to have access to the same service and qualifications they registered for, while future students will benefit from the sound foundation we have built over time.
