The Da Vinci Institute Application Form 2020-2021

The Da Vinci Institute for Technology Management is a School of Management contributing towards socio-economic development and transformation. The Institute’s purpose is to cultivate managerial leaders through the core principles of business driven action learning by offering students a personalised journey of self-discovery and co-creation.

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 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 well 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 Bennie Anderson, joined The Institute during 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).
